    It looks like it’s limited to Gray, mackenzie& co Ltd. does that mean back then they had monopoly over the market?

  3. Mnfear says:

    By the power god gave me and satan !! I will not allow alcohol to be legal !! .. if you don’t like it you can go to other countries and drink as much as you want !!

    May The God be merciful on your souls … to those who drink alcohol

    @ Mark – great post.

    Gray Mackenzie now known as ISS / KMMC where i currently work indeed sold booze from a tiny window located on the ground floor facing the gulf road or sief palace. Big time monoply during those days. Earned Millions i suppose.
    In fact alot of our Kuwaiti clients still call our company Gray Mackenzie and not ISS or KMMC for the great times they have had in the past. Not bad ha!!!

    It was even written in legible, grammatically correct english! sometimes, as strange as it sounds, I wish I could go back in time.

      Grammatically correct English. Don’t get to see that these days.

    • aaa says:

      That’s because the only people speaking English back then were native speakers, it would be a lot harder to get around in Kuwait in the 60s without knowing Arabic.

  9. Buzz says:

    Alcohol was banned by an act of Parliament, I believe sometime in the 70s.

    kuwait airlines had some alcohol permit before the invasion ….. before the invasion alcohol was available and sold pretty much everywhere but it was kept quiet, they used to warn them or fine them in most cases…. it’s only these 20+ years after the invasion that they started punishing those alcohol dealers severely

    ….its just a post on the past….its not sold legaly now… so why r people getting offended here. n yea @people who think “wats with Mark n alcohol” ..its just a blog people and hes blogging not advertising or selling…

    @Mnfear …people do respect the fact that you do not want or will not let alcohol be legal in this country but….. if you do get a chance …read the daily paper’s n take a look at the nationality of people who get caught for druken driving or even accidents caused due to drunkeness…. Its easy to stop and deport the expat …what you gonna do bout your own…. just a thought no offense.
