Paul Walsh, Diageo's chief executive admitted in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph over ther weekend that it was something the company was continuing to consider. Asked if the group had looked at listing on the Hong Kong stock exchange, Walsh replied: “Yes, there will have been some discussion documents provided.”

But, Walsh suggested a listing was some time off. The firm currently has listings on the London and New York stock exchanges. 

When contacted by just-drinks today (11 June), a spokesperson for Diageo would not be drawn on the report, referring only to what Walsh told the Sunday Telegraph.

Last week Diageo announced it is investing GBP1bn (US1.55bn) in Scotch production over the next five years, as demand for its premium brands in emerging markets fuel expansion.

The London-headquartered company says it expects emerging markets to generate 50% of its total net sales by 2015.
