MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's consumer protection watchdog is preparing to suspend imports of "Kentucky Gentleman" bourbon, adding to a growing list of products Russia has banned since the West imposed new sanctions over Moscow's support of rebels in Ukraine.
The Rospotrebnadzor service found signs of phthalates - organic chemicals - in the bourbon, it said on Monday in a statement on its website. www.rospotrebnadzor.ru

Sounds like a great advertising opportunity. “Kentucky Gentleman’s Bourbon. So American it was banned by the Russkies.”

More for us, and maybe a small price allowance due to decreased volume of exports.

The Russians found alcohol in it.
