YES you can get a whisky for just 1p this week. YES it's decent whisky (a 12 year old Speyside single malt) and hell YES there's a catch.
This week until Friday The Black Penny in Covent Garden will indeed hand you a whisky in exchange for a measly one pence piece, but only between 8am-10am AND on the condition it's poured into a cup of coffee.
And yes, there's only one drink per customer.
Still, it's better than a kick in the teeth, and it's sure to keep your alcohol cravings locked up till lunch.
