And everything else, too!
Whatever you choose, I recommend going peat-free. Sometimes peat seems to swell the sinuses. Cask-strength would be nice, but if you're going cheap, Powers is as good as anything.

For more serious cases (man flu etc), this is a very effective remedy:
1/4 pint cheap whisky
Juice of 1 lemon
1 level tsp chilli powder
As much crushed garlic as you can stand
Pour whisky, lemon juice and honey into a pint glass.
Fill up glass with hot water, stir to dissolve honey, then add chilli powder and garlic.
Drink as fast as possible while sitting in the hottest bath you can bear.
Towel off and retire to bed.
Do not, repeat DO NOT, ask wife for a cuddle.
Comments: The key here is speed. You really can't afford to let this one get cold. The amount of sweat that you will emit while in the bath is incredible. This is for emergencies only, but I once managed to survive an 18 hour stock count on a couple of these. (I managed a wine shop in a previous life).
