During the first year, AWH expects to reach a minimum sales mark of $500,000 and to have up to 25,000 bottles available for sale over the next 12 months, with sales reaching up to $2 million. AWH’s CEO Chris Malcolm said: “The Spirits Platform team, under the leadership of Ian Atherton, is second to none in Australia and we look forward to a long-term strategic partnership with them. “Spirits Platform is part-owned by Remy Cointreau, which represents a wonderful opportunity for us to explore distribution with Remy into the vast South East Asian market. Spirits Platform has the perfect mix of commercial nous, retail capability and most importantly the ability to nurture and build our brand in the on-premise."
