AMAZON FORAYS INTO WHISKEY
Amazon is not making the liquor, but it has bottled a Scotch whisky for the first time. Bowmore is a highend product, and Amazon is selling a 19-year-old whisky from the brand aged in 225-litre red wine casks made of French oaks. These casks are from Chateau Legrange, a red wine brand from Bordeaux. Incidentally, both Bowmore and Legrange are owned by Japanese drinks giant Suntory. Besides Bowmore, Amazon is the main online retailer for Johnnie Walker-Game of Thrones limited-edition collection.
