Osborne acquires the Spanish whisky Doble V
El Puerto de Santa María, 5 August 2020.- Osborne, a company with almost 250 years of history behind it and brands such as Cinco Jotas, Nordés, Montecillo and Carlos I, acquired the brand from Pernod Ricard on 31 July.
This is a brand with history and a truly Spanish essence, whose popularity soared during the 90s, becoming the fourth most sold whisky in Spain. Over the years, Doble V has managed to maintain its presence throughout the country, with a large percentage of its sales coming from Andalusia, where it began. Last year, sales grew by more than 15% compared to the previous year and, now part of Osborne, it is expected to continue to grow over the coming years.
Fernando Terry, CEO of Osborne, has spoken about how the team is ‘already working on a plan to give Doble V a more contemporary image, position it as a premium brand, increase its distribution, boost its appeal for consumers and turn it into a leading Spanish whisky. This milestone will undoubtedly allow us to harness synergies and strengthen our presence in the world’s most important spirits category. The acquisition is part of our Strategic Plan, one of the objectives of which is to breathe new life into our product portfolio’.
Osborne will begin retailing the brand from 1 September 2020 through its various channels, namely the hospitality and food retail industry, and online.
Since 1772, Osborne has been committed to the future and the company will continue to work hard to bring enjoyment and authentic experiences to its customers through its products. Throughout its history, Osborne’s mission has been to bring authentic products to its customers and strive for excellence, something it has achieved thanks to its visionary spirit and commitment to society (channelled through the work of the Osborne Foundation).
The company is the owner of internationally renowned brands such as Cinco Jotas 100% Iberian acorn-fed ham, Bodegas Montecillo rioja wine, Carlos I brandy de Jerez and Nordés gin, to name but a few examples. Its products are currently present in more than 50 countries around the world. As well as producing and selling its own brands, the company also distributes leading third-party products in Spain, including Piper-Heidsieck champagne, Brockmans Gin, Russian Standard Vodka, Zubrowka Vodka, Flor de Caña Rum, Passport Scotch Whisky, Disaronno and Tia Maria.
Osborne is also the owner of the legendary Toro de Osborne, recognised around the world as one of the most successful brands in the history of advertising and an icon of Spanish culture.
