    THE MANAGING DIRECTOR OF THE GHANA STATE DISTILLERIES CORPORATION, MR. KWABENA OWUSU, OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED TWO NEW PRODUCTS OF THE CORPORATION AT A COCKTAIL PARTY AT THE BUKOM NIGHT CLUB OF THE HOTEL CONTINENTAL IN ACCRA ON TUESDAY NIGHT. THE NEW PRODUCTS ARE CASTLE BRIDGE LONDON DRY GIN AND MACKIE'S SCOTCH WHISKY.

    PRODUCTS OF THE CORPORATION WERE SERVED TO THE GUESTS, WHO INCLUDED HIGH-RANKING GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND BUSINESSMEN. THE TWO NEW BRANDS APPEARED ON THE MARKET ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO, AND THE CORPORATION SAYS IT CAN PRODUCE 3,600 BOTTLES A DAY.

    MR. OWUSU SAID THAT FOR SOMETIME NOW GHANA HAS BEEN LOSING FOREIGN EXCHANGE THROUGH THE SMUGGLING OF DRINKS SUCH AS BRANDY AND WHISKY INTO THE COUNTRY. HE POINTED OUT THAT THE SMUGGLED GOODS ARE PAID FOR WITH MONEY FROM LARGE QUANTITIES OF GHANA'S COCOA SMUGGLED TO NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES AND THIS AFFECTED GHANA'S ECONOMY GREATLY.
