Champagne on hold!

At this time of year I normally put in an order for a case of Champagne and quite a few of those will go as presents when we visit friends and family over Christmas/New Year.

I searched for the best prices and got a discount code which kept getting rejected. I checked the coupon terms and guess what - "Not Applicable in Scotland". Why the f*** not?

I have just phoned my brother in Bramhall near Manchester and he can order it and get the discount and can get it delivered directly to me.

Why why why?

Maybe this should be in the rants thread!

I didn't really see Majestic Wine as a Buckie kind of place but you never know.

I must say that I do have a wry smile at the irony of a caffeine laden wine produced by Monks in Devon (who make a nice profit thanks) being shipped to the winos of Glasgow. That has to be social engineering of some sort!

Is it some weird Scottish government thing that stops discounted booze. Weird that you can't have a discounted bottle of poo but can get a 2litr bottle of white lighting for a 1

Does Scotland have per unit pricing or promotion bans? If so that would explain why.

It looks like we will get the minimum pricing of alcohol but it isn't in yet but who knows. A good drinks warehouse just off the motorway and south of the border could be a great investment as Scots do the same as those who nip across the channel to fill up the boot with wine.

I think that, whilst minimum alcohol pricing hasn't started, bulk promotions have been banned in Scotland for a few years now.

Those people who say "If I win he lottery it won't change me"....

I'll definately be taking a supercar down to the South of France to deliver Bromptons and to pick up some bubbly!
