UK: Malibu climbs to number two
Allied Domecq acquired Malibu 18 months ago, and the brand has increased its volume and value share to 10.8% and 10.14% respectively over the MAT to July 2003, according to AC Nielsen. In a statement, Allied said these figures have been achieved during a period when all other major speciality spirit brands experienced volume decline.
Senior brand manager at Allied Domecq, Jeremy Hill, said: "We are confident that we can further improve our market position in the run up to Christmas and who knows, even secure the number one position."
