Pernod Ricard Hellas, an affiliate of the Group Pernod Ricard, was established in Greece in 1990 and has been growing steadily ever since. What makes us unique is that we try to foster local roots by building a strong local distribution network. For that reason, Ouzo Mini is an important asset of ours in Greece, which has enabled us to develop that network over time. Along with Eoliki Greek Liqueurs, Ouzo Mini is produced in a modern ISO production unit in Mytilene.
The company owns a broad portfolio of iconic and leading spirit brands such as Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky and Absolut Vodka, but also unique and growing brands such as Jameson Irish Whiskey, Havana Club Cuban Rum, Beefeater London Dry Gin, and Olmeca Tequila. Finally, Pernod Ricard Hellas also manages a great portfolio of ultra-premium brands, such as Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque, Absolut Elyx, The Glenlivet Malt Whisky, Royal Salute, and Martell Cognac.
This rich portfolio has enabled Pernod Ricard Hellas to gain the second position in the Greek spirit market, with a growing turnover of 41.4 million euros and 110 employees.
PR Hellas historically has also been a key actor supporting Greek entrepreneurs and Greek society, through various brand and charitable initiatives (Chivas Venture, Absolut Green Hustle, and significant support for various NGO’s, including those engaged in the relief for refugees, fire victims, and orphans, as well as in environmental protection).
