Luxury liquor maker Moët Hennessy Diageo China signs new deal with Alibaba.
LVMH-owned wine and spirits brand Moët Hennessy and Alibaba Group are teaming up once again to explore more opportunities in new retail.
Moët Hennessy Diageo China, a company in high-end wines & spirits business under the globally well-known luxury group LVMH, and Alibaba, a widely influential e-commerce company in China, signed a series of brand new strategic cooperative agreements at the opening ceremony of the Hangzhou Division of the “Decoding Hennessy” interactive experience exhibition. After the agreements were signed, the two parties announced the 2019 “Hennessy Tmall Super Brand Day”.
During the “Decoding Hennessy” exhibition, the two parties launched 2019 “Hennessy Tmall Super Brand Day”.
As a leader of online marketing platforms for IPs, Tmall Super Brand Day is good at generating momentum from across the Internet and creating tailored 11.11 sales projects for brands, thus providing an innovative marketing platform for outstanding global brands. Since its establishment 5 years ago, it has been a festival during which brands and their customers communicate. During the 2019 “Hennessy Tmall Super Brand Day”, Hennessy V. S. O. P UVA Special Collectors’ Edition, jointly created with London’s avant-garde art group United Visual Artists (UVA), was first released globally on Tmall with a limited number of products.
Last year, the partnership was announced and signed on Tmall Super Brand Day August 31, when content from Chinese celebrities and key opinion leaders (KOLs) is featured. In 2019, the Hennessy V.S.O.P 200th anniversary special edition was available for sales exclusively on the Tmall store, priced at $100 (RMB 688).
Establishing an official presence in the mainland market since 2005, the joint venture between the French luxury conglomerate LVMH and the global spirits group Diageo has set up official stores on both Alibaba’s Tmall and JD.com in the last two years to cash in on the shifting purchasing habits of luxury liquor buyers in China.
