A local brandy is going places. After 18 months since it started expanding its brand footprint outside the Philippines, Emperador Brandy – now the world’s largest brandy by volume – is now being distributed in 40 countries across Asia, North America, Africa, Middle East, and Europe.
The brand continues to develop distribution alignments in new markets and it is aiming to be in at least 50 countries by end-2016.
Meanwhile, E & J Gallo Winery, the world’s largest family-owned wine producer, has begun distributing Whyte & Mackay’s The Dalmore, Jura and John Barr Scotch whisky brands in the US since the start of this year. Emperador Inc. owns the Whyte and Mackay Group.
“Because we are now global, we are able to capitalize on our worldwide distribution network. We have a full range of brandy and whisky products led by Emperador and Fundador brandy as well as single malt whisky The Dalmore and Jura plus Whyte & Mackay and John Barr blended whiskies that are available in many parts of the world,” says Winston Co, president, Emperador Inc.
Emperador achieved a net income of P3.4 billion in the first half of 2016, up 5.5% compared with the same period in 2015.
