UK distiller William Grant has named Danish group Hans Just as its travel-retail distributor for the Nordic markets.

William Grant, which had previously worked with separate distributors in each Nordic country,  said the move would expand its sales force in the market.

"The business across the different markets can be very efficiently managed by one company, with Denmark as the entry point into the Nordic area," said William Grant global travel-retail director Ylva Binder.

Hans Just's existing spirits portfolio includes Jägermeister, the Campari portfolio, Grand Marnier and Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey.
