Although it may not yet be ready to challenge Scotland or Ireland, the Toyuz-Baltiya distillery from the Caspian nation has its sights on conquering the whiskey markets of Central Europe, India and Scandinavia with its locally made Azeri Whiskey brand. The whiskey would join Toyuz-Baltiya's lineup of spirits, currently headlined by fruit-based hooch made out of watermelon, quince and pomegranate. Full details here.
As noted previously on this blog, this is only the latest Azeri move on the global beverage stage.
