The biggest-ever travel-retail showcase for the cognac brand has been set up in London Heathrow airport terminal five’s World Duty Free store

Liquor supplier Bacardi Global Travel Retail has launched the biggest-ever travel-retail showcase for the Baron Otard cognac brand in the World Duty Free store at London Heathrow airport terminal five, supported by high-impact displays and tasting activities.

The in-store bar within the shop’s liquor area at T5 is sporting the Baron Otard branding and passengers are able to sample some of the Baron Otard cognacs available to purchase in travel-retail including Baron Otard XO Gold. Other products on display and for sale include Baron Otard VSOP, Baron Otard Extra 1795 and Baron Otard Fortis et Fidelis.

In addition to sampling the cognac neat, travellers can try Baron Sour cocktails, made by Bacardi-trained bartenders with Baron Otard VSOP, freshly-squeezed lemon juice and sugar cane, shaken and poured over ice.

Bacardi Global Travel Retail regional director Europe Aude Rocourt said: “2013 is a year of great opportunity for Baron Otard, which is reflected in the scale of this magnificent showcase at Heathrow—but this is only the beginning.

“We are looking forward to a year full of exciting initiatives worthy of a spirit like Baron Otard. We will be building on the momentum behind the brand by continuing to raise its profile globally and giving discerning consumers the opportunity to taste the quality of this exceptional cognac.”

World Duty Free Group UK buying manager for liquor Nigel Sandals added: “This is the first significant activation we have done with Baron Otard cognac. The focus in Heathrow T5 using the Tasting Bar and retail space available showcases the taste of the cognac and the range available in T5. The timing is perfect, as we can also leverage the Chinese New Year opportunities that exist in January and February.”
