Visiting the Seagrams distillery and sticking his head in the vat.
They show him the Chrismas 1971 bottle and swear him to secrecy.
The 1963 bottle was so bad the designer is now working in Iceland!
Everybody in Shep's family would buy Grandpa a bottle for Christmas.
When flying you are allowed 2 drinks. Shep tells about flying from LA to NY and there is a college professor on
board. The professor made his rounds around the plane asking people if they had their two drinks. If they hadn't he asked if he could have them. He became extremely drunk. The stewardess explains he's a regular on the flight and does it all the time.
