PHILIPPINES: Emperador Distiller buys San Bruno brandy house
Emperador Distillers claims to be the leading brandy maker by volume
Emperador Distillers, a Philippine brandy maker, has bought Spanish brandy house San Bruno for an undisclosed fee.
The deal gives Emperador, a subsidiary of Philippine conglomerate Alliance Global Group, the San Bruno trademark, its vineyards in Jerez and the house's inventory, according to a disclosure on the Philippine Stock Exchange on Monday (14 January). The trademark dates from 1942, the disclosure said.
Emperador president Winston Co said the takeover gives the company “one of the world’s best brandy stock - some of it quite rare and aged for more than 40 years in the bodegas”. It will strengthen Emperador's position as the “world’s leading brandy company by volume”, he added.
Emperador sold more than 31 million cases of brandy in 2012, the disclosure said.
Brandy from Jerez was said to be one of the winners of a Philippine stand down on imported spirits tax in 2011 because of its popularity in the country.
