BBC Spirits appoints Duty Free Global as Global Travel Retail Partner

Duty Free Global has been appointed by BBC Spirits as its Global Travel Retail partner for Etsu Japanese Gin, Hinotori Japanese Whisky and Goalong Chinese Gin and Whiskey.

Barry Geoghegan, Founder of Duty Free Global commented “The whole team at Duty Free Global are delighted to commence our partnership with the exceptional portfolio of BBC Spirits. We had the pleasure of visiting Bogdan, European Sales Director Romain Papillon and all the team at BBC recently at their HQ in Bordeaux and we were incredibly impressed by the quality of the liquids, branding and huge category knowledge. Bogdan has been one of the world’s biggest advocates of Asian spirits and the possibilities of products from Japan in particular (and more recently China) in becoming global brands. We receive in the global travel retail channel huge requests for top quality brands from these countries and to work with the best specialist in this subcategory is indeed an honor. We look forward to sharing these great liquids with our GTR friends in Cannes very soon.”

Bogdan Tanasoiu, President and Owner of BBC Spirits said “At BBC Spirits, we are eagerly looking forward to opening a new chapter for our brands in collaboration with the Duty Free Global team. After five years of sharing our passion for Asian Spirits with strong domestic partners, we believe it is now time to let them shine in the TR industry. Romain and I will have the pleasure of joining Barry’s talented team in Cannes at the DFG booth to introduce our unique selection, which includes Etsu Japanese Gin, our flagship brands that have achieved strong performance in domestic markets, Hinotori Japanese Whisky and its limited editions, as well as the pioneering Goalong Chinese Whiskey and Gin. We look forward to seeing you all in Cannes!”
