In an efficient supply chain, retailers will only stock the required inventory. They don't want to buy a couple cases of Bulleit and sit on it for months if they don't have to. If they sold 1 bottle today, for the sake of example, they want to order 1 to replace it. In fact, they don't even want to have to order. It just shows up from the distributor because they're tied into the store's inventory. That's how Walmart works.
