If you are passing through CDG airport in Paris,France soon? You are? lucky devils!
Besides some very interesting Travel retail only editions you can find there, William Grant & Sons (Maker’s of Grant’s blended whisky) have set up an exclusive brand store, at the CDG, Terminal 2 , only this February.
The shop was placed there because “William Grant & Sons has a very strong relationship with Aelia; the same outlet was chosen for the global premiere of Glenfiddich 50 Year Old in 2009 with great success and in September 2010 we took the same space for activity highlighting Glenfiddich, The Balvenie and Grant’s,’ says Ian Taylor, Global Marketing Manager ‘ Grant’s is a very strong brand in the airport, we have seen real success in selling the premium and super premium offerings, Grant’s also has an excellent following in the French domestic market. Therefore it made sense to choose CDG, one of the world’s key airports, to take our next step and create this exclusive Grant’s Whisky retail store”
