Blog: Olly Wehringjust-drinks: You're tuned to the right station

Olly Wehring | 22 January 2007

British modesty sometimes makes it difficult for just-drinks to big itself up too much. As I have German parentage, however, I have no such problem with singing the praises of this site.

You may have noticed that the number of scoops on just-drinks is growing month-by-month, week-by-week. Earlier this month, for example, we spoke to the senior investment manager at Swedish private equity group Ratos about its position on the sale of Vin & Sprit. Leif Johansson told us: “Ratos and Arcus [the Norwegian wine and spirits group owned by Ratos] are discussing a new strategy that would focus on the development of local brands. We are open to looking at the possibility of acquiring V&S, but our interest is only in the V&S operations and brands that exclude Absolut.”

Always nice to get there first, I feel - also nice to help out the bigger boys whenever the occasion arises.

Keep it tuned to just-drinks.com, folks. You know it makes sense.
