We also questioned analysts about speculation that Anheuser-Busch InBev is looking to dispose of assets in Eastern Europe.
In the wine world, we found that online wine sales in the UK are continuing to grow strongly, despite the recession. A report on the growth in UK vineyard plantings also prompted us to question experts about the future of the UK wine industry.
Sticking with wine, we reported last week that Foster's has received interest from Asia on its wine assets.
In other snippets, William Grant & Sons has poached Bacardi's marketing director to be its new CEO, Coca-Cola has been cleared to acquire Leao Junior in Brazil and France has legalised internet adverts for alcohol.
