Although he’s developed a taste for Bruichladdich Organic single malt from the island of Islay, David Cameron won’t be buying any duty-free whisky at Vladivostok Airport, according to a sign prominently displayed outside the duty-free shop.
The Prime Minister, along with US president Barack Obama and German chancellor Angela Merkel – both partial to a beer or two – have all been banned from buying duty-free at the airport in the eastern Russian city.
