Butterscotch? Buttergin? Got a little something going on the side? - Mr. Salt
Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker. - Willy Wonka
Butterscotch and Buttergin are two alcoholic drinks created by Willy Wonka. They are first mentioned in the novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The Oompa-Loompas are said to go silly over it. They are later mentioned in the film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
- Butterscotch, in this case, is a pun. Butterscotch is a flavor of candy, and scotch is an alcoholic beverage. Buttergin is a pun as well, combining butter with gin (an alcoholic beverage). Buttergin was added in the novel, likely to display the butterscotch pun which may be unrecognizable as a joke about alcohol.
