Pernod Ricard has completed the acquisition of Castle Brands by a subsidiary of Pernod Ricard SA, through a cash tender offer followed by a short-form merger.

Alexandre Ricard, chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard, said: “We’re thrilled about the closing of the Castle Brands acquisition and the opportunity it offers us in the world’s largest spirits market, the US, a priority market for the Group.”
