Founder-creator of the Two Dogs Australian alcoholic fruit drinks brand Duncan MacGillivray is to retire on June 30. Two Dogs was bought by the Pernod Ricard in 1997.

A company statement said MacGillivray had then agreed to stay on chairman and managing director of Two Dogs International Pty Ltd for five years. Ruth Harris will take over as general manager on July 1.

Two Dogs was launched in Adelaide, South Australia, in November 1993.

MacGillivray said it started when a neighbour did not know what to do with an over-supply of lemons. It swiftly became a cult drink with the unusual, irreverent name derived from the punch line of a joke too blue even for the liberal just-drinks website.

MacGillivray said he will now concentrate on vineyard and beef cattle interests in South Australia.
