MICHEL HOLDINGS announced today that it will bring Mexican premium craft beer group Cerveceria Primus to the Asia-Pacific region through its group company Merchants of Pleasure. It will be the first time Primus products are available internationally.
Frontline brands Tempus and Jabali will provide customers with a wide selection of options in terms of flavor and brew styles.
Primus Brewery Director, Jaime Andreu "We have been working hard for ten years in Mexico in order to bring a quality product to our customer and to create great experiences around beer. It is certainly exiting for us now to be able to do the same in Asia. We are confident that Merchants of Pleasure and their team will be the perfect ally to help us do so."
Michel Holdings President Mr. Stephane Michel "We are extremely excited about this new venture and are proud to be representing Cerveceria Primus in Asia. Tempus is a pioneer in the Mexican craft beer movement and has enjoyed a cult following in Mexico which we hope will be replicated on this side of the Pacific. It is a privilege to be selected as the group responsible for the first International exposure of these brands."
Hong Kong will serve as initial point of entry into the Asian market and regional hub, with products available from March 2016. This represents the first point of export for Cerveceria Primus globally. Products will gradually be rolled out into other regional markets such as Singapore, Taiwan, Shanghai, Thailand, South Korea and the Philippines.
