Maxxium UK has confirmed that it will remain the distributor for the former Rémy Cointreau Dutch spirits business Bols.

Rémy last week sold a slew of Dutch brands including Bols liqueurs to one of its former executives, Huub van Doorne, and ABN AMRO Capital, the private equity arm of Dutch bank ABN AMRO.

Maxxium UK said today (13 March) that its distribution agreement remained in place.

Managing director Huw Pennell said: "We have worked with Huub van Doorne at Rémy Cointreau for a number of years, and we're delighted that the brands will continue to benefit from his guidance and expertise as they return to their Amsterdam home.

"Huub led the strategic repositioning of the Bols brand, and this has been central to Maxxium UK's leading work on cocktails."
