Anyone remember the amusing campaign for this sherry that ran in the mid-1960s? The ads consisted of an image of somebody desiring a drink, with a short rhyming caption. One was of a man holding a hammer; the caption read "DIY? - Dry Fly!"
So many people wrote in with their own suggestions, Findlater's decided to make a competition of it. The winning entry showed a burglar sneaking out the window, joyfully grasping a bottle, with the caption "Other's buy? - Dry Fly!"

My father always drank Dry Fly and it was still available a couple of years ago although the square bottle has been replaced by an ordinary round one. Am trying to track it down
