Number of medals throughout 2020: 57

Every year, The Global Spirits Masters blind‐tasting series rewards the company that accrued the greatest number of medals and points throughout the year with the Overall Grand Spirit Master award. In 2020, Pernod Ricard took the top title.

The company, which owns brands such as Jameson Irish whiskey and Absolut Vodka, received 57 medals, spanning categories including rum, Scotch whisky, design and packaging and Cognac.

“Congratulations to Pernod Ricard for achieving this prestigious award,” said Kiely. “The title of Overall Grand Master is a testament to the vast assortment of exceptional products in the Pernod Ricard portfolio.”

French drinks group Pernod Ricard is the second biggest wine and spirits company in the world. The firm was created in 1975 following the merger of Ricard and Pernod.

The company’s brands, which also include Beefeater gin, Martell Cognac, Havana Club rum and Malibu liqueur, are distributed in more than 160 markets, and by the group’s own sales team in 73 markets. The company is led by Alexandre Ricard, chief executive officer of Pernod Ricard.
