 The group has already started talking to a few distilleries based in
 Europe, but the negotiation closest to fruition is with a distillery
 based in France. The acquisition could happen within a few months.
 The UB group said it is no longer interested in further domestic
 acquisitions. Immediately after the acquisition of its leading
