Clint Wilfred & Sons – Good taste for rapidly expanding markets

Clint Wilfred & Sons Ltd brings a carefully selected portfolio of drinks to the Gulf region and Southeast Asia. The young company targets fast-moving products in the HORECA – Hotel/Restaurant/Café and Hotel/Restaurant/Catering market segment. It is run by Clint Wilfred, whose family has been in the spirit production and distribution business for over four decades.

One main focus of business activities lies in the United Arab Emirates. To offer new products on this rapidly growing market is a great challenge, as the demand for premium and niche products is constantly increasing and customers’ wishes are very diverse. The range, therefore, also includes non-alcoholic and carbonated soft drinks, still and sparkling water, ready-to-drink teas, energy sport drinks and other New Age drinks. There is also a strong focus on a wide selection of packaging sizes and formats.

One special product in the spirits product category is Count Cristo Blended Scotch Whisky, a premium blend with a high malt content from the Scottish Speyside region and with some lowland malt for added depth and character.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Count Cristo Blended Scotch Whisky.

Georg Hemmeter – XUXU, Escorial, SILLA EL FUERTE

Georg Hemmeter – strawberry drinks with exceptional flavour guaranteed

The name Georg Hemmeter – a company of the Underberg Group – stands for innovative spirits, in particular the XUXU range. The fresh and fruity strawberry drink contains 66 percent fruit plus crystal-clear vodka, rounded off with a dash of lime. The harmony between the sweetness of the fruit and just 15% alcohol by volume is created using a special production method. XUXU Ten, the little luxury in a 250 ml aluminium bottle with only 10% alcohol by volume, is dressed to party – it is still relatively new to the market, yet is already at home in all the world’s top party venues.
XUXU can be served in so many different ways: chilled, neat, on crushed ice, as a dessert topping, with sparkling wine or with other mixers – XUXU tastes heavenly and offers fresh and fruity pleasure. Welcome to Berrydise!

Initially the absolute top star in Greece, XUXU is now also number 1 in Russia, and extremely popular in Turkey and Italy too.


XUXU Strawberry & Vodka Drink and XUXU Ten won Gold at the World Spirits Award 2014.

Cervejaria Backer: Innovation from Brazil

The Backer Brewery was founded in 1999 by the Lebbos brothers near Serra do Curral in the southeast of Brazil and now has 80 employees. With 25 bottled beer varieties, every month 800,000 litres are produced, according to company director, Paula Lebbos. The focus is currently on starting out in the world of whiskey, something she was introduced to at Jack Daniel’s in the USA in 2010. This prompted the desire to make their own whisky. As in the past, when there was a market niche for craft beer, the possibility of filling a niche for single malt also became evident here.

The company also owns a bar in the capital city, Belo Horizonte: Templo Cervejeiro. As well as their beer portfolio, the two innovative spirits, whiskey and gin, are also offered. 3 Lobos Whiskey Artesanal Experience is distilled in specially manufactured copper stills following Scottish tradition, with malted barley – which is also used in some beers as brewing malt – and matures for five years in American oak barrels (Jim Beam Bourbon). For the first batch, more than 5,000 numbered bottles were filled. Lebbos Hop Dry Gin combines traditional botanicals such as juniper and angelica root with the essence of craft beer: hops. Its lightness and freshness make this gin a real pleasure to drink, especially in a gin & tonic.

At the World Spirits Award, gold was awarded to 3 Lobos Whiskey and Lebbos Hop Dry Gin.
