REFILE--UK regulator weighing Diageo offer to sell whiskey assets

LONDON, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Britain’s Office of Fair Trade said on Monday that it is considering an offer from Diageo to sell most of its Whyte & Mackay assets to address competition concerns arising from Diageo’s acquisition this year of a controlling interest in United Spirits Limited.

Diageo said it will be assisting the OFT with its ongoing work and that a further announcement will be made in due course.
