Booze in Bhutan: “Not just downing but drowning in it”

Recent news that international brands Bacardi and Molson Coors are entering the Bhutanese market was illuminated by this report in today’s Kuensel about how much locally produced booze is consumed in the Kingdom. Two cases of hootch each year per person (including, the story points out, the ex-pats who are working there.)

To wit:
“Bhutanese across the nation tanked themselves up with close to 1.7M litres of alcohol drink, or as many as 170 petroleum oil trucks last year.”

See why those kids in Mongar, Bhutan need a library???
