Pernod Ricard SA, the global co-leader in the wines and spirits industry, was founded in 1975 when long-standing competitors in the French anise-based spirits market, Pernod and Ricard, decided to join forces, laying the foundation for a new era of rapid development and exceptional achievements. Thanks to successful expansion, the Group created an outstanding brand portfolio of world-renowned premium spirits, such as Absolut, Chivas, Royal Salute, Jameson, Ballantine’s, The Glenlivet, Aberlour, Olmeca, Beefeater, Havana Club, Mumm, Perrier-Jouët, Martell, and many others.
The history of Pernod Ricard in Armenia dates back to 1999 when the Group acquired Yerevan Brandy Company, the producer of legendary Ararat Armenian brandies, while 2008 was marked by the official opening of Pernod Ricard Armenia, which imports and distributes the Group’s products in Armenia.
Pernod Ricard displays a unique approach to the brands in its portfolio by respectfully preserving their production methods, as well as the identity and heritage handed down from generation to generation. Hence each of the bottles brought to its consumers by Pernod Ricard Armenia is a little piece of a different part of our planet, a unique ambassador and symbol of the country it was produced in.
