US: Marnier-Lapostolle sticks with Moet Hennessy for Grand Marnier Liqueur distribution
Moët Hennessy will continue its distribution deal
Moët Hennessy will continue as US distributor of Grand Marnier Liqueur after renewing a deal with brand owner Marnier-Lapostolle.
In a joint statement today (14 January), the companies said they have extended a “long-standing agreement”. The length and financial details of the new deal were not disclosed.
Jim Clerkin, Moët Hennessy USA's president & CEO said: "I am extremely pleased that we will continue to work with Marnier-Lapostolle to grow the Grand Marnier brand in the US, introduce new products and bring 'La Vie Grand Marnier' to life for consumers and the trade."
Last May, the two companies ended their agreement over Moët Hennessy's distribution of Marnier-Lapostolle's Lapostolle and Chateau de Sancerre wine brands in the US. After “mutual agreement”, Marnier-Lapostolle handed distribution to Terlato Wines in July.
