Definition

Short form of the brand name McDowell

Rum(Celebrations), Whiskey, Brandy, and soda of this company are all referred to by the customer and the trade alike, almost exclusively, as Mc Rum, Mc Brandy and so on.

If you are a regular at the bar or the wine store they normally know what type of alcohol you use from among those that the brand offers, all you have to do to order your next peg is shout out over the din "hey bring another Mc here".

"Mc" itself, within names like McDowell or McDonnell or McIntosh etc. stands for 'son of ' for Scottish and Irish.

See bin.

Usage

When everybody including the MC-the Master of Ceremonies- get too drunk, nobody bothers anymore whether it is MC whiskey or MC brandy they are gulping.
