India’s United Breweries (UB) is among parties reported to have made approaches for distiller Whyte & Mackay (W&M). The producer of the eponymous whisky, Isle of Jura single malt, Dalmore single malt, Vladivar Vodka and Glayva liqueur said it was evaluating “all strategic options”. An Indian newspaper reported that UB had bought the company for £400m but W&M denied this. The Times 07/10/06 page 58 (Need to know), page 61
