Quotes

Beckham said: "The House of Haig has a rich history and I’m proud to be working at the heart of a home-grown brand which has built an incredible heritage over 400 years. Working closely with Diageo, we look forward to collaborating on Haig Club, valuing and treasuring the Haig traditions while reinventing this whisky for years to come.”"
"The three changes I am announcing today, together with the appointments I have already made to the executive committee, bring together a strong leadership team. I congratulate Gilbert, Nick and David Cutter on their new appointments and I look forward to working with them and the whole Diageo executive, to deliver our ambition for Diageo to become one of the best performing, most trusted and respected consumer products companies in the world" said Menezes
Earlier this month Diageo’s Smith said: "This isn't about Diageo as all of our Tennessee whiskey is made with new oak, this is about Brown-Forman trying to stifle competition and the entrepreneurial spirit of micro distillers.”"
"Moreover, the addition of FCD will enable us to further build our critical mass in key North American markets, providing us with a strong market position in Canada and positioning us for further growth in our core US market. At the same time, our international route to market will also enable the Forty Creek whisky brand to grow faster out of its core North American market. Lastly, through this acquisition we will also be able to internalise key activities in the Canadian market,” said Kunze-Concewitz."
