The world’s second largest vodka producer, Roust Group, has revealed plans to bring its global travel-retail business to its international office in London.
Roust Group’s products, which include Russian Standard Vodka, have been distributed in the travel-retail channel by Rémy Cointreau since 2009 and the brand is distributed to the duty-free market in over 80 countries.
However, Roust Group has now announced that from the beginning of April, its travel-retail operations will be conducted in house at Roust’s international office in London.
As a result, Roust’s Brands, such as Russian Standard Vodka, Żubrówka Bison Grass, Green Mark, Soplica, Kauffman, Parliament and Talka, as well as Italian sparkling wine and vermouth brand, Gancia, will be sold directly to the travel-retail market.
In a statement, Roust thanked Rémy Cointreau for their collaboration and said it would continue to work with Rémy Cointreau in the Russian, Polish and Hungarian markets.
