Top 10 banned spirits

Stiffy’s Vodka

Stiffy's-VodkaThe suggestive name of Stiffy’s Jaffa Cake Vodka caused the brand to be banned by the Portman Group in November 2011 over concerns it was inappropriately linked to sex.

However the producer of the vodka, Stiffy’s Shots Ltd, said the name had been chosen because “Stiffy” was the nickname of a person involved in the drink’s development, rather than for its sexual connotations.

The company then changed its name to Stivy’s.
