Who we are

Pernod Ricard is a convivial, responsible and successful global wine and spirits group. Number 2 worldwide with a clear ambition to become the leader of our sector, we have one of the most comprehensive portfolios of the industry with 240 premium brands available in over 160 countries.

Our vision

We are unlocking the magic of human connection to grow our business, transform our industry, and make a positive impact on the world. We do this by creating convivialité. Our ambition is to turn every social interaction into a genuine and friendly experience of sharing.
Convivialité is the glue that binds us together, it allows us to meet our innate human need of connecting with one another. Convivialité is the force beyond us, one that carries us, an energy that brings us closer together.
We crave convivialité because it is inherent to humanity and a true source of joy. When we are open to meeting people as our most authentic selves and we share convivial moments, our lives become so much brighter and more vibrant!
In those moments we become convivialists – a role each and every one of us should embrace.
