Maxxium Nederland will handle more Beam Global brands

Maxxium has assumed distribution control of several Beam Global Spirits & Wine brands in the Netherlands.

The Dutch entity, a joint-venture between Lucas Bols and The Edrington Group, confirmed yesterday (17 March) that it will distribute “selected premium brands” from the Beam Global portfolio, including Teacher’s, Laphroaig, Ardmore and Larios Gin in The Netherlands from 1 July.

The brands had previously been handled in the Netherlands by A Brand New Day. “Beam Global decided to move the brands to Maxxium Nederland, which is currently already distributing other Beam Global brands like Jim Beam, Maker's Mark and Sauza,” a spokesperson told just-drinks.

Thomas Clamens, Maxxium Nederland's managing director, added: "The addition of these brands reinforces Maxxium Nederland's portfolio and will strengthen its position in the whisky and gin categories, increasing our coverage in consumer taste profile and drinking occasions.”

Maxxium in its current incarnation came to be after the departure of former partners Remy Cointreau and Vin & Sprit, last year.
