CANADA: Corby renews Allied Domecq agreement
Corby Distilleries has renewed its agency, bottling, and administrative service agreements with Allied Domecq and will continue selling brands such as Kahlua and Malibu under current commercial terms.
Allied Domecq, along with its subsidiary Hiram Walker & Sons Ltd., will continue to provide Corby with certain bottling and administrative services.
"Corby has built an exceptional portfolio of core brands," said Jim Clerkin, president of Allied Domecq Spirits North America. "The support provided by Allied Domecq under this renewed agreement will help our Canadian partner achieve market leadership and preferred status among its consumers."
Krystyna Hoeg, president and CEO of Corby Distilleries, said: "Corby is pleased to continue to market and sell Allied Domecq's internationally renowned spirits brands such as Canadian Club, Kahlua, Malibu, Sauza Tequila, Beefeater, Courvoisier and Ballantine's. These are strong brands in their respective categories and will help Corby maintain its position as a leading marketer and distributor of spirits and imported wines in Canada."
The agreements have been renewed under the same commercial terms as the current ones, which were set to expire today (August 31).
