It’s founder began attempting to "tame" the product by isolating a proprietary strain of yeast still used in X production.This yeast gives X’s product its flavour profile.After experimenting with several techniques he hit upon filtering the product through charcoal, which removed impurities. In addition to this, he aged the product in white oak barrels, which had the effect of mellowing the drink. • X’s logo derives from __________, which lived in the rafters of the building where the founder and his brother opened their first processing unit in 1862.
  69. 69. Answer • Bacardi

  73. 73. Answer • ZARA
  74. 74. 18. • X was founded by Pierre X in Alba, Piedmont, Italy in 1946.

While last Christmas was all about "Y" -- shoppers going to a store to check out a product but then heading home to buy the item online -- shoppers this year are more likely to buy in the store, a Harris Poll indicates. • Both X andY highlight the new retail reality: consumers expect the ability to shop easily across many different channels, and they allow the web and mobile channels to influence their buying decisions — regardless of how (or where) they eventually purchase the product.
