ABOUT EDRINGTON WEBB TRAVEL RETAIL AMERICAS 

Edrington and World Equity Brand Builders (WEBB) have announced the formation of a new joint venture: Edrington Webb Travel Retail Americas. 

The two companies announced in August 2014 that they were in exclusive discussions about a distribution partnership for the travel retail channel in the Americas, including Canada, and the Caribbean.

Edrington Webb Travel Retail Americas will launch operations on January 16 2015, replacing Edrington’s previous distribution agreement with Rémy Cointreau Travel Retail Americas, which ends on January 15th.

WEBB has represented Edrington’s brands in the Caribbean for four years. The new company will combine the Edrington portfolio of The Macallan, Highland Park, The Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark, Brugal rum and Snow Leopard vodka with WEBB’s portfolio of Disaronno, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Armand de Brignac, Licor 43, The Glenrothes and Tia Maria, as well as wines including Cupcake Vineyards Ramon Bilbao, Luc Belaire and Mionetto.

“The travel retail channel in the Americas and the Caribbean represents nearly a quarter of total duty free spirit volumes worldwide, with more than 5 million cases of spirits per year,” says Edrington. “Including airport duty free stores, cruise lines and border stores, it has an estimated annual value of more than $1 billion.”

The Edrington Webb joint venture follows the creation in October of Edrington’s new global travel retail business in Singapore. Led by Tellis Baroutsis, the unit will increase Edrington’s focus on this growth channel.

Juan Gentile, Edrington’s area director for the Americas said: “The creation of Edrington Webb will expand our reach and bring us closer to customers and consumers in this valuable and dynamic market.
