Not necessarily the cheapest, but don't waste a fine Cognac or Armagnac by mixing lemonade and lemon juice in it.

In my time at Akrotiri there were some really cheap 'brandy's' that were only suitable for use as paint stripper. These were about 3/6 a bottle. I paid about 7/6 a bottle for one of the 'better' Keo brandy's, which I could well afford on a Cpl/Tech's money.

If anyone is interested, I have a war story about how we made tea with 'paint stripper' quality Spanish brandy.
