Dear Sir,

I am in distillery/liquor co for last 35 years. I have worked in leading groups of india, burma-union of Myanmar, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and free town-sierra leone. My area of job is to develop alcoholic, non-alcoholic, wine, energy drinks etc. If willing to need my updated profile and services, kindly let me know to proceed further.

Kind regards,

Hey there S K.

Congratulations on your long and successful career. 35 years is a long time to spend on your craft—and in the leading groups at that! Wow. We are sure that you develop the best alcoholic, non-alcoholic, wine and energy drinks etc. in the whole of Freetown Sierra Leone. We respect that. Unfortunately, we will have to pass on viewing your updated profile and services, because we are a local Icelandic newspaper. We report on issues pertaining to those living in, or visiting, Iceland. We don’t do much by way of blending beverages. It’s not that the team doesn’t appreciate the subtlety and balance inherent in a well crafted energy drink, and certainly not when it’s been developed by a Master Blender like yourself. It’s just that we don’t really need to come up with new drinks, we just have to write about Icelandic news and events. Honestly, S K, we’re confused. Did… did you… did you even mean to send this to us?

Nevertheless, we shall raise a glass to your achievements at our next wine mixer.
