DUBLIN, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The wine and spirits beverage industry's globally recognized consulting agency, Brindiamo Group, is opening a new office in Europe.
By having an "on the ground" presence in Europe, Brindiamo Group will have access to support our clients through strategic initiatives and in turn lead to a better service position.
"The decision to expand into Europe was a logical step in our business growth strategy," said Jeff Hopmayer, Managing Partner, Brindiamo Group. "Some of the most sophisticated drinks markets in the world are in these regions and it's critical that we meet clients where they live to service them most effectively."
Along with Brindiamo Group's international mergers and acquisition guidance, the group is also providing worldwide access to the highest quality whisky and bourbon. The latest expansion will diversify the strong foundations the group has already established within these two markets. The establishment of the new office brings along new team member Ray McLaughlin, who will spearhead the European initiative. With over seventeen years in private equity, his experience will help nurture relationships and facilitate growth globally.
"Whiskey is one of my true passions," says McLaughlin. "The drinks industry is continuously dynamic, bringing exciting challenges and always offering a true sense of fulfillment. It is a pleasure to be joining the Brindiamo team to support the delivery of this new offering in Europe."
The expansion comes amid increased demand for Scotch and Irish Whiskey. The value of exports of Scotch Whisky rose 9 percent to £4.36 Billion in 2017. The strength of Scotch exports increased 1.6 percent in volume to the equivalent 1.23 Billion Bottles. The Irish Whiskey Association (IWA) set a goal of doubling sales from 72 million bottles in 2016 to 144 million bottles by 2020 and to 288 million bottles by 2030. In the last year, Irish whiskey sales were on track to meet this goal by selling an estimated 120 million bottles in 2017.
"Thanks to our new presence in Ireland, Brindiamo can establish even closer ties with European clients and is better positioned to introduce our service offerings to distillers, wineries, brand owners and drink companies throughout the region," said Jason McMurray, Partner, Brindiamo Group.
