Liquor
A DISTILLED BEVERAGE, SPIRIT, LIQUOR, HARD LIQUOR or HARD ALCOHOL is an alcoholic beverage produced by distillation of grains, fruit, or vegetables that have already gone through alcoholic fermentation . The distillation process purifies the liquid and removes diluting components like water, for the purpose of increasing its proportion of alcohol content (commonly expressed as alcohol by volume, ABV ). As distilled beverages contain significantly more alcohol, they are considered "harder" – in North America, the term hard liquor is used to distinguish distilled beverages from undistilled ones. As examples, this term does not include beverages such as beer , wine , sake , and cider , as they are fermented but not distilled. These all have a relatively low alcohol content, typically less than 15%. Brandy

Retailing involves the process of selling consumer goods or Services to customers through multiple channels of distribution to earn a profit. Retailers satisfy demand identified through a supply chain . Some of the earliest retailers were itinerant peddlers . The term "retailer" is typically applied where a service provider fills the small orders of a large number of individuals, who are end-users, rather than large orders of a small number of wholesale , corporate or government clientele. Shopping generally refers to the act of buying products. Sometimes this is done to obtain final goods , including necessities such as food and clothing; sometimes it takes place as a recreational activity
