Pernod Ricard - committed to New Zealand

Pernod Ricard is the world’s #2 in wine and spirits. Created in 1975 by the merger of Ricard and Pernod, the Group has undergone sustained development, based on both organic growth and acquisitions.

The 2005 acquisition of Allied Domecq included a number of iconic New Zealand wine brands including Stoneleigh, Deutz, Church Road and Montana.  This acquisition saw the creation of Pernod Ricard New Zealand, and opened access to the entire Pernod Ricard portfolio to the New Zealand market, including French brands Pernod, Ricard, Lillet, G.H Mumm and Perrier Jouët.

In New Zealand, Pernod Ricard employs around 500 people across both production and distribution. Our winemaking teams are able to leverage the expertise of colleagues across the globe as well as their own experience as the founders of the Marlborough wine region, to craft award-winning wines that are exported to more than 50 countries.  At the same time, our distribution business brings global brands, including iconic French spirits and champagne brands to New Zealand consumers.

Globally, Pernod Ricard is strongly committed to a sustainable development policy and encourages responsible consumption. Pernod Ricard’s strategy and ambition are based on 3 key values that guide its expansion: entrepreneurial spirit, mutual trust and a strong sense of ethics.

A focus on sustainability

The Pernod Ricard team in New Zealand embraces the global commitment to sustainability and responsibility.  All of our vineyards are certified by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and we are committed to exceeding the requirements of this certification and identifying ways to improve the environment and communities in which we operate. This includes extensive native tree plantings in and around our vineyards, including more than 10,000 plantings in our Kaituna Wetland restoration, an area covering 10 hectares and providing a haven for native birds, insects and aquatic species. Through our Brancott Estate brand, we have sponsored Marlborough Falcon Trust since 2010, contributing more than half a million dollars as well as access to our land for their rehabilitation and breeding aviary.
