Blog: Pernod Ricard - sell, sell, sell.
Olly Wehring | 8 April 2009
Pernod's announcement today (8 April) that it is selling its Wild Turkey Bourbon brand to Campari is just the latest in a long list of divestments made by the France-based company since it completed its purchase of Vin & Sprit almost a year ago.
Last year, Pernod said it was looking to dispose of up to EUR1bn (US$1.32bn)-worth of "non strategic assets brands". Including today's sale, the company has brought in EUR577m (US$763.2m).
Here's a timeline of that process.
