Morgenrot wins new Cruzcampo deal

07 April, 2011

The importer said the move followed a 16% increase in take-home sales of the brand last year and that it would be looking to drive sales of a 1-litre bottle in multiples and independents in 2011.

Senior national account manager Graham Archibald said: “The larger bottle format is something we believe will fill a real gap in the retail sector and is part of our summer campaign to get people to approach beer as they do wine, by sharing it.”
