BBC Wines & Spirits

Stand: B61, Hall 1

Founded in Bordeaux in 2010, BBC Wines & Spirits specialises in Japanese spirits and will bring its full range to Vinexpo.

One of the stand’s highlights will be Etsu Gin, made on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido using green bitter-orange peel, coriander, liquorice and angelica root.

The botanicals are macerated in neutral cane spirit for 24 hours before copper-still distillation takes place, then diluted using water from the Taisetsu Mountains.

BBC Wines & Spirits will also display its Kurayoshi blended whisky range, which includes no-age-statement, 12- and 18-year-old bottlings.

The firm says that it will aim to make contacts with French drinks retailers, as well as European and North American buyers.

“As a Bordeaux-based company, Vinexpo is very important to us,” says North America sales director Guillaume Holtzmann-Suss. “Our expectations in terms of business and visibility are high.”
