The world of spirits will get its first-ever Lebanese vodka, J2, in August.The vodka will add to Lebanon's fast-growing alcoholic beverage industry, which experimental wine- and beer-makers as well as savvy entrepreneurs like J2's founder R. Adam Aboulhosn are helping push forward.J2's creators said the drink reflected what they see as Lebanon's inherent "party gene".This was too much of an opportunity to leave in the hands of foreign producers, and Aboulhosn decided the time had come for vodka production to meet with Lebanese ingenuity.The new team at J2 is relatively small, though Aboulhosn has expansion plans.Aboulhosn, a graduate of the American University of Beirut, said he understands the risks of opening a business in Lebanon.
