“Stock Slovensko is a powerful distributor, with the local expertise and network to take our portfolio to the next level of growth. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Italmarket who have done an excellent job of building our brands in Slovakia over the last few years.”

Stock Slovensko managing director Roman Pócs said: “I am delighted to be beginning our partnership with Beam Suntory in Slovakia. I believe this is a great opportunity to expand our portfolio with world-class Beam Suntory brands.

“Premium brands have enormous potential and we will seek to bring mutual success and benefit to both of our companies through excellent service within the Slovak market.”

Recently, Beam Suntory released a limited edition Jim Beam Game 7 Batch. Jim Beam was the official Bourbon of the Chicago Cubs. Beam Suntory also introduced a limited edition Basil Hayden’s Rye Whiskey.
