Exactly, I'm talking about buying in Tesco (Jack Daniels currently £23 for a litre, excellent price!) popping it into the suitcase and it going in the hold.
No problem, but I'd transfer it into 500ml plastic coke bottles first if I were you, judging by the care some baggage handlers take...
Can't speak for the London airports as I've no recent experience of them but at Manchester the Duty Free shops have shelves of spirits marked for travel outside EU only but also some marked as available to ALL passengers.
There are usually some reasonable deals though not as good as you often find in the supermarkets.
Sounds like you've found yourself a bargain LJ.
Safe journey and happy holidays.
