An employee inspects a bottle of Jameson whiskey, produced by Irish Distillers Ltd., on the production line at the Pernod-Ricard SA bottling plant in Dublin, Ireland, on Monday, Jan. 23, 2012. Pernod-Ricard SA sold $2.5 billion of debt, its second sale in three months, as the maker of Chivas Regal whisky takes advantage of the investment-grade ratings gained last year from the two biggest credit graders.
