MarketWatch reports that with a dram of Lehman Brothers Scotch, say.

"It has a contrite, bereft peatiness," says James Green, a 34-year-old London entrepreneur who has created a new liquor line with the doomed bank's logo.

He is describing his flagship Scotch whisky, labelled Ashes of Disaster. "The remit to the master blender was to taste the ups and downs of the economic devastation of 2008."

That year Lehman hit the rocks, helping trigger the global financial crisis. But its name lives on.

"Lehman moment" is shorthand for failure of companies, politicians and countries. Rap lyrics, cartoons and concept artists have invoked the name.
