No bad mouthing Diageo I get a lot of free booze and goodies out of them every year. I've got a 40 of booze and about 24 of those Smirnoff Triple Blacks from them since the spring, as well as lots of samples at various events.

Diageo -- man, these guys make everything. Their products include not only Guinness and Johnny Walker, but Captain Morgan and Cuervo as well.

Damn, I'm tempted to say boycott the irreverant bastards (selling a blended as a single malt!), but I don't know that I could!

Anyway, I don't like Cardhu in the first place. Pretty wussy for a single malt.

Pretty much all the alcohol manufacturing in the world (or at least the Western world; I don't know about China, Japan and the rest of Asia) is owned by 2 or 3 companies; this includes virtually every whisky and whiskey distillery in Europe and North America, and most of the distilleries in general. Most of the irate scotch distilleries mentioned are, I believe owned by Diageo's competition Pernod-Ricard.

Sure, you can get your own beer and wine made, or buy local, but most spirits and liqueurs are owned by the megacorps.
