Pernod Ricard has secured a new Travel Retail listing for Plymouth Gin, bringing the super-premium brand to Terminal 5 at London's Heathrow Airport.

A copper-style bar in Terminal 5 will support the World Duty Free Group listing along with gondola and wall displays, Pernod said today (13 March). The move follows what Pernod said has been a strong performance for gin in European Travel Retail.

At a launch event in London today, Plymouth's global brand director, JC Iglesias, said the super-premium gin category was growing sales by 40% year-on-year.

“It's a very exciting market place,” he said. “It's a very dynamic place and it has prompted us to come into the space with this activation with World Duty Free.”

Jenny Shipton, marketing director at Pernod Ricard Travel Retail Europe, added: “The premium gin category has seen significant growth in Travel Retail, presenting a huge opportunity for innovation. In recent years we've been reinforcing Plymouth's position as a super-premium gin with a strong heritage. We are pleased to be introducing our biggest activation to date.”

In an exclusive interview with just-drinks last year, Iglesias said Pernod had previously priced Plymouth Gin too low but, after raising its price tag by about 25%, had it “in the right place now”.

World Duty Free is selling Plymouth Gin for GBP32.99 (US$55) per 1-litre bottle.
