Brewery news UK: Diageo able to cope with any possible disruption in case of no-deal Brexit - CEO
As Pernod Ricard revealed that it has begun stockpiling ahead of a potential no-deal Brexit, Diageo very firmly emphasised that it too will be able to cope with any possible disruption without “material effect” on the company, The Drinks Business reported on January 31.

Ivan Menezes, Diageo’s chief executive, went out of his way to say that the world’s biggest premium spirits company “is very keen to get a deal done.”

“We don’t see a material impact for the company as a result of Brexit but we very definitely want a deal and we are working very closely with government and actively supporting the need to get to a deal,” he said.

“Diageo is in a relatively privileged position when I compare us to other industries and sectors in terms of the impact of Brexit for us.

“Our supply chains are more indigenous and simpler. When you think of what we make in Scotland it is water, barley, peat, men, women and lots of time…. so our ability to manage supply chains relative to other industries is very much better.

“Second, our trade with Europe will be tariff free under WTO [World Trade Organisation] conditions.” They will come into force after March 29 if Britain ...More info on site

Brewery news Mexico: Supreme Court rejects Corona beer maker’s bid for VAT rebate
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on January 29 the country's Supreme Court had rejected a bid by the makers of Corona beer for a value-added tax rebate worth billions of pesos, CNBC reported.

"There was going to be a refund of billions of pesos to the company Corona, to the brewer Corona," Lopez Obrador told his regular morning news conference. "The Supreme Court decided that the request was inadmissible," he added.

Corona is made in Mexico by brewer Modelo, a unit of Anheuser Busch InBev NV, a Belgium-based company. In the United States, production of the beer is licensed to Constellation Brands Inc. Lopez Obrador did not give further details.

Modelo said in a statement later in the day that Lopez Obrador's comments referred to processes led by some former shareholders, and not any legal action taken by the company.

Brewery news The Czech Republic: Budvar’s output rises last year to second-highest level in its history
Beer production at Budvar, which has been in a long legal dispute with U.S. giant Anheuser-Busch over use of the "Budweiser" brand, increased last year to the second highest level in the brewer's 123-year history.

Budejovicky Budvar NP, a Czech state-owned brewery, said on January 31 that its output rose 3.6 percent in 2018 to 1.602 million hectolitres (42.32 million gallons).

The output growth followed a 4-percent decline in 2017 that was caused by shifting production to a premium brand.

Budvar says its revenues hit a record high last year, reaching 2.6 billion crowns ($114 million), up 7.3 percent from 2018. Other financial results, including profit and export figures, have not been released.

Brewery news Canada: Molson Coors in discussions with Groupe Selection for sale of its iconic Montreal brewery
Molson Coors has confirmed it is in discussions with Groupe Sélection for the sale of its iconic Montreal brewery, CBC reported on January 31.

Groupe Sélection, formerly known as Réseau Sélection, is best known for building retirement homes throughout Quebec.

It was selected from several bidders. According to Molson Coors, there are now several steps to complete before the sale is completed.

The brewery, in operation since 1786, was put on the market in the fall after the company decided to move its operation to a new plant in Longueuil by the year 2021. However, it will maintain its offices in Montreal.

The brewery, which towers over Notre-Dame Street near the Jacques-Cartier Bridge along the St. Lawrence River, has been the subject of a public consultation that began last week.

The departure of Molson offers "a unique opportunity to rethink the relationship to the river," reads a document prepared by Montreal's public consultation office (OCPM).

Sale of Molson brewery site could mean change on the horizon for Centre-Sud area The City of Montreal has given itself a right of first refusal on the Molson site, meaning it could buy the property at the same price as that offered by an eventual buyer.

Brewery news Zimbabwe: AB InBev to place over $120 mln in unremitted dividends to help reduce pressure on Delta Corporation
Delta Corporation's anchor shareholder, AB InBev, will place over $120 million in unremitted dividends and fees in Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) savings bonds thereby reducing pressure on the demand for foreign currency by the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange listed beverages concern, the Bulawayo24 News reported on February 1.

The global brewer has 40 percent shareholding in the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange-listed concern. Delta company secretary Alex Makamure said AB InBev has supported Delta through credit lines for the importation of raw materials since access to foreign currency became limited and continues to provide this support.

"In addition, AB InBev has agreed to place over $120 million due to them in relation to unremitted dividends and fees into RBZ savings bonds in order to reduce the pressure on the demand of foreign currency," he said.

Of that amount, about $95 million is unremitted dividend and the balance caters for fees and other charges, Makamure told Business Times last week.

The beverages concern recently paid out an interim dividend of $0,025 per share. In total, Delta paid $31,7 million as interim dividend.

AB InBev's share of the dividend was about $11 million after taking out the 10 percent withholding tax.

RBZ Savings Bonds were introduced in 2017 to encourage ...More info on site

Whisky news UK: Diageo to revive iconic Port Ellen distillery on Islay
Drinks giant Diageo plans to revive the iconic Port Ellen Scotch whisky distillery on Islay in an “inspiring celebration of quality, heritage and innovation”, as outlined in proposals revealed on January 29 to the local community, the Insider reported.

The plans, which will be formally submitted to Argyle & Bute Council later this year, were unveiled at a pre-planning consultation event in Port Ellen, giving Islay locals the opportunity to view the proposals.

The community was invited to view the plans at the consultation event and to share their memories and artefacts relating to the historic distillery.

Diageo said the tight-knit community on Islay is intrinsically woven into the life of the island’s famous distilleries, with almost everyone connected either directly or through friends and family with the Scotch whisky industry. Former employees of Port Ellen were amongst those invited along to share in the distillery revival plans.

In October 2017, Diageo announced a £35 million investment programme to bring back Port Ellen on Islay and Brora distillery in Sutherland, both of which closed in 1983.

Since then the company has embarked on an additional £150m investment programme in Scotch whisky tourism which will create a global flagship visitor experience for Johnnie Walker scotch whisky ...More info on site
