Burgundy-based drinks group Boisset is selling its spirits branch to French counterpart La Martiniquaise, for an undisclosed sum.

Boisset said the sale would allow it to refocus the business on still and sparkling wines, for which it occupies a strategic position. 

The branch represented EUR85m ($122.04m) of Boisset's global 2007 turnover of EUR227m.

Its portfolio includes brands such as Duval and Casanis, (pastis), L'Héritier-Guyot (crème de cassis),  Saint Raphaêl (apéritif  wine), Manor, Rapha and Valuria (natural sweet wines) and Avèze (bitter liqueur).

The sale also includes Belgian company,  Bruggman, which mostly produces gin.

The 45 staff which make up Boisset's spirits branch will be retained by La Martiniquaise, which also this month bought the Glen Moray Scotch whisky distillery from Glenmorangie.
