First Drinks has signed a deal for the UK distribution rights for Tia Maria. 

The non-cream liqueur will enter the company's portfolio on 1 October, the company said today (10 September), following Illva Saronno's acquisition of the brand from Pernod Ricard in July.
The development further cements First Drinks' relationship with Illva Saronno, who together have grown Disaronno in the UK to the number two brand since its introduction in 2000, the company said.
"We are extremely pleased to take the classic coffee liqueur Tia Maria, which is worth GBP43.8m (US$72.5m), into our portfolio of premium brands," said Chris Mason, managing director of First Drinks. "We already enjoy a strong relationship with Illva Saronno, as evidenced by Disaronno's success as the fastest growing non-cream liqueur, and it gives us great satisfaction to extend this already strong partnership with welcoming Tia Maria on board."
Pernod Ricard sold the brand to the Italian wine and spirits firm for EUR125m in July.

As part of the deal, Pernod's Chivas Brothers division now produce Tia Maria for Illva Saronno, while "arrangements were made for short term transitional distribution services to be provided by Pernod Ricard affiliates", the company said at the time.
