Sales, Prices and Who Cares of Necessities

Cognac sales keep rising according to French parent companies of Martell and Remy Martin. This situation is mostly fueled by Asian markets and the continuous momentum of lifting sales in the US.

In an article from Reuters Paris last week, an official representative from Remy concluded that there was a sign of recovery in the US!

[“All group divisions and all regions contributed to this performance. Growth rates were particularly outstanding in Asia. Signs of the recovery in the U.S. and Western Europe are confirmed,” the maker of Remy Martin cognac, Cointreau liqueur and Mount Gay Rum said in a statement.]

Interestingly, Remy noticed that the rising prices of Cognac in Asia were also positive factors of growth.

Hence, cognac is a luxury!
