We also do cut-glass decanters on a silver platter that your butler can serve you drinks on for £4.95. People say 'How can you do this for such a low price?' I say, because it's total crap.

Refreshing Approach To Damage Limitation !
When it comes to marketing everyone is looking for that USP that will make them stand out from their competitors.

Male and female will have remembered this for very different reasons - but I guarantee they will have acknowledged the product and its visuals in a 'different' and quite positive way.
This adds a new dimension to the phrase: Keeping It Light!
