Wine? What about whiskey or vodka?


Pump-Your-Own Wine Kiosks Launched in French Supermarkets, Coming to US Next Year

"It seems like we get everything from automated vending kiosks these days, from cash to DVDs to postal service to gasoline. The French have simply taken the next logical step. Putting a modern (and greener) spin on an old way of doing business, a French vendor has begun selling wine by volume from 500- and 1,000-liter vending pumps in French supermarkets. All customers need is a container." - popular science

This is awesome, i can't wait for it to happen. But for in order for something like this to happen in my area, i would assume that liquor would need to be privatized. 

I think it's so stupid that it is not privatized already. We're limited to these stupid hours that liquor stores are open. They close so early! It would be so nice to walk into safeway 24 hours a day and buy a nice bottle of jack as opposed to hoping that the liquor store is still open and having to go out of your way to get it. 

It just dosnt make sense to me, beer is sold in grocery stores, why not liquor as well?

Anyway, this wine dispenser thing looks pretty cool and I cant wait for it to hit my area.
