Vintage Buckfast advert targets stressed-out housewives

It has a calming effect, apparently.

ACCORDING TO THIS brilliant vintage ad from the 1970s, Buckfast wasn’t always for young hellraisers on the session.

No, the monks of Buckfast Abbey were targeting a very different audience: overwrought housewives in need of a calmer.

Are you stressed out doing the shopping?

Have you got too much to carry?

Do you have to make the goddamn dinner for your family, AGAIN?

Simply relax with a glass of Buckfast Tonic Wine!
