Russia now considering Jack Daniel’s Honey banBy Becky Paskin
Russia’s consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor is now considering a ban on Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey after finding concerning chemical substances in the product.
The news comes just hours after the agency banned imports of certain Ukranian vodka and beer brands over quality concerns, and days after US group Sazerac’s Bourbon, Kentucky Gentleman, was banned from being sold in the country.
According to Russian publication Itar-Tass, consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor had not only found potentially hazardous chemical substances in Brown-Forman’s best-selling flavoured whiskey, the labelling did not conform to Russian regulations.
It stressed that the label did not contain information in Russian on the spirit’s composition, the producer’s location or its age.
