As a former professional cricketer, Nick Pringle is well-aware of the power the game's biggest names wield over the public. That's why Accolade Wines has recruited the services of Glenn McGrath to promote its Hardys brand in India. Earlier this week, Pringle, who is now the company's commercial director for the Indian subcontinent, Africa, the Middle East, South & Central America, and Southern Europe, talks to just-drinks about the McGrath tie-up, as well as Accolade's market challenges elsewhere.

Moët Hennessy has seen its sales continue to struggle in the first quarter as issues in China remain.

Belvédère, the French wine and spirits group, has appointed an executive team as it continues a strategic plan to turn around falling sales.
