While both companies will remain completely independent, the “strategic alliance” will enable them to face “globalisation and consolidation within the travel retail industry”, which has become a “challenge for medium-sized family-owned companies”.

The JV will allow the groups to have a “balanced” product portfolio and “optimise and increase manpower for sales and marketing”.

Waldemar Behn, producer of Danzka Vodka, and Pallini will share logistic, sales, and marketing costs at a global level.

“The globalisation and consolidation within the travel retail industries is a challenge for a middle-sized family-owned company,” said Waldemar Behn CEO Rüdiger Behn.

“That’s why we are inviting family-owned companies to join their forces with ours by keeping the high service level we are known for as family- managed companies and stay still true to our values of independence, uniqueness and craftsmanship our fans around the world honour us for.”
