Assalam alaikum,
The Noble Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--"Allah has cursed wine, and whoever drinks it, whoever pours it, whoever sells it, whoever buys it, whoever presses (distils) it for another, whoever presses it for himself, whoever carries (transports) it, whoever accepts its delivery, or whoever eats (benefits from) its price (sale)". [Abu Dawud, Al-Hakim]

Form this Hadith, we note that it is not just the consumption/drinking of alcohol that is haram or unlawful. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, in His Wisdom, cuts off evil at its roots. Hence all those have been warned of destruction who play any role in the spread of this social evil, namely:--

1. Drinker of alcohol,
2. The one who pours/serves it out for another to drink,
3. The one who sells it,
4. The one who buys it, regardless of who it is for,
5. The one involved in its production,
6. The one involved in transportation of alcoholic beverages,
7. The one who receives its delivery, and
8. The one who financially benefits from the sale of alcohol.

Other ahadith of the Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, make it clear that all intoxicants are forbidden, it is not only alcohol that is haram. Whatever intoxicates is forbidden to be consumed in large or the smallest amount/quantity. Let us NOTE this accordingly, please...
