Insider Trading

I've been learning more about the financial world lately, especially following the trial of Raj Rajaratnam, and the whole idea of insider trading seems like it is completely possible in the booze world, albeit not with stocks.  Large quantity purchasing of particular products can stem from early access to insider info.  For example, I was able to get a sneak peak at Steve McCarthy's new summer release of Islay-style whiskey.  I know for a fact that I was the first person to taste it and get a chance to buy it.  I might go really deep and buy a ton of it in order to corner the market because it's easily the best whiskey he's ever made for the white label release.  Because Steve came to me with a sample before anyone else, that gives me insider info that I can use to make large purchasing in advance and therefore help K&L's sales.  Granted, I still have to do the selling, but my experience tells me that this won't be a problem.

Am I going to jail?
