Winston Churchill (1871-1947)
‘The Wit of Sir Winston’ (1965)
“Champagne does have one regular drawback: swilled as a regular thing a certain sourness settles in the tummy, and the result is permanent bad breath. Really incurable.”

“No government could survive without champagne. Champagne in the throats of our diplomatic people is like oil in the wheels of an engine.”
Joseph Dargent, French Vintner (1955)
