Taking a flight to a European hypermarket to buy alcohol doesn't seem terribly practical even without the environmental cost, given the restrictions on luggage. ITYM ferry, and I'm not sure what the impact of their crossings are but I suspect it's significantly less than flights, even with the added petrol usage of the cars on board.

(But yes, it's hardly 'saving'.)

It'll mean by ferry, aye. In which case we can decry that tip for its London-centrism, since it's easy and cheap and a bit of a laugh to take you and your mates and a car to the hypermarkets of Calais if you're in the south east, and pointlessly expensive and long-distance if you're from almost anywhere else in the UK.
