Cognac exports stay strong

By Andy Morton March 27, 2013
Cognac export volumes slowed last year but raced ahead in value, new figures have shown.

In 2012, Cognac exports increased by 3.2% in volume to a record 168m bottles, and by 16.7% in value, according to Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC) data released this week. "These figures reflect the strength of the Cognac category particularly in the export markets of Europe, Asia and North America," the trade body said.
