AUS: Swift + Moore becomes Brown-Forman Australia
US-based wines and spirits group Brown-Forman will next month see its Australian distribution company from Swift + Moore become Brown-Forman Australia.
The move follows Brown-Forman's acquisition of the company, which had previously been a joint venture.
"We see this as a logical decision following Brown-Forman taking 100% control of the Swift + Moore business in February," said Brown-Forman Australia's managing director Michael McShane. "Swift + Moore has a long and distinguished history in the Australian liquor industry and we are pleased to continue building upon the fine traditions of this long-standing business."
However, Pernod Ricard already had a distributor in Australia, and subsequently sold its equity position to Brown-Forman.
