We aim to grow our participation in international premium spirits, driven by growth in both populations and incomes, and the increasing penetration of spirits in emerging markets. To support this, we participate in both beer and mainstream spirits selectively to deliver organisational scale and distribution reach, and to shape responsible drinking trends in markets where international premium spirits is an emerging category.
Our intent is to build breadth and depth across drinking occasions by shaping consumer demand for our international premium spirits brands. In developed markets our strategy is to drive premiumisation through spirits price tiers up to our reserve portfolio. In emerging markets our strategy is to develop from an import-based premium spirits model to become a local player where appropriate, participating in categories that give us the scale and access to the fast growing middle-class consumer. Everywhere we operate, we do so in a responsible and sustainable way.
