1460455438-a215aacf403a86af5e1e0d2a33c010bfThe image of Winston Churchill with a cigar and a glass of brandy formed, of course, without reason. Sir Winston really loved to drink.

In December 1931, he turned over in a car in New York and was taken to hospital. History has preserved a document dated January 26, 1932 and approved by the attending physician:

This document certifies that for the post-crash rehabilitation of Winston Churchill, the use of alcoholic beverages is necessary, especially during meals. The quantity is, of course, uncertain, but the minimum requirement is 250 cubic centimeters.

The phrase "Quantity is naturally indefinite" was permanently entrenched in the image of an English politician with a glass and a cigar. I recall Churchill’s statement: “When I was young, I took it as a rule not to drink a single drop of alcohol before lunch. Now that I’m already aged, I follow the rule not to drink a single drop of alcohol before breakfast.”

Sir Winston Churchill died at the age of 90.
