Campari International, a business unit of Campari Group, has appointed Alexander James & Co. as its exclusive US duty-free distributor.

The agreement covers the Italian spirits group's full portfolio, which includes Campari, Skyy vodka, Cinzano and Martin Miller's gin.

Alexander James & Co executive vice president Ned Carpenter said: "Duty-free operators across the US will now be able to have Campari International's brands supplied from our two warehouses on the East and West Coast. This will significantly increase the level of service, delivery speed and inventory control, which will benefit all parties and, of course, grow Campari's business here in the US."
