I often used to say, if it wasn't for the amount of stuff that we used to throw on the fires in the 60's & 70's (when we were still allowed to have them) the stuff being sold at exorbitant prices today would be a fraction of the price.
In the 80's we were selling reclaimed imperial size bricks for a £100 per 1000. Now they are a £1 each a £1000 per 1000. Its unbelievable. I can remember if we couldn't sell them as hard core we used to have to pay to tip them.

I would have though that was the most probable use for it, but as a rule in my experience water jugs were smaller and usually advertised whisky. Though in my opinion water is only fit for washing in and should never be used to pollute a good Scotch. The only thing you put in whisky is another measure of whisky.
No Signman, I haven't yet. I am tempted but I cause enough damage with a modern super safe razor so I think something as dodgy as a Rolls may be the end of me. I will of course be sterilising it good and proper before I ever do try one. VM
