INDIA: Borco signs distributor for Sierra Tequila
German spirits group Borco has struck a distribution deal in India for its Sierra Tequila brand.
Dhall Food and Beverages will be the master franchiser for the brand in India and appoint a network of sub-franchisees and distributors to sell Sierra Tequila around the country.
Vikram Dhall, the company's executive director, said Dhall Food and Beverages would initially focus on major cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore with sales forecast to hit 5,000 cases in the first year.
Brands like Camino Real and Jose Cuervo are present in India but Erik Hoffman, Borco's international sales director, was confident that Sierra Tequila could grab a 30% share of the category in one year.
Dhall distributes a stable of wine and spirits brands including The Macallan Scotch whisky and Gosset Champagne.
