In addition, sales of Cointreau’s partner brands grew by 14.3% in the third quarter of 2021, on top of the 20.1% growth achieved in the first nine months of 2021. In the United States in particular, Maison Cointreau is benefiting from very good sales momentum, encouraged by the collaboration with actress Jessica Alba and The Botanist gin.


Regarding its outlook for the year 2021-2022, the group remains focused on outperforming the capacity of its exceptional spirits markets. Indeed, Rémy Cointreau is targeting very strong organic growth in its current operating income, as well as an organic improvement in its current operating margin. The group expects this growth to be driven by the exceptional performance achieved in the first half of the year.
