Famed Spanish winery, Vega Sicilia, has set its sights on Myanmar's wine market with a newly formed distribution agreement with Singapore-based Bordeaux Liquid Gold (BLG), following the country's loosened grip on wine imports.
This will be the first time the Spanish 'first growth' has officially shipped its wines to the Southeastern Asian country after years of trade sanctions.
Starting in 2015, the country's Ministry of Commerce opened the door for wine imports by giving out legal licenses to companies to import wines. By the end of 2016, about 25 companies were permitted to import wines, reported The Myanmar Times.
"The social and economic situation in Myanmar has improved sharply in the last years, however, coming into the premium wine market is still challenging," Pablo Álvarez, CEO of the winery, told dbHK, commenting on the entrance.
"Nevertheless, we consider this is the perfect moment to bring in our wines and we, together with BLG, will have a good welcome for sure," he continued.
Compared with neighbouring countries like Thailand, where wine consumption takes up less than 1% of the country's total alcohol consumption, Myanmar's wine demand is slightly more robust, although still dwarfed by more popular beer and whisky, accounting for around 6% of the country's total alcohol consumption, according to a report by World Bank in 2010.
Beer alone, however, makes up more than 80% of the country's beverage consumption and Euromonitor has predicted that Myanmar's beer market will almost double in value from US$375 million in 2015 to US$675 million by 2018.

SINGAPORE, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bordeaux Liquid Gold has been appointed as theexclusive distributor of Champagne Barons de Rothschild. With effect from April 1st 2016, the agreement states that Bordeaux Liquid Gold will represent Champagne Barons De Rothschild in every state of Malaysia except for Langkawi Island and is allowed to sell exclusively to its Private Customers network in Hong Kong and Singapore.
The history of the well-known Rothschild family dates back more than 250 years; they have longbeen involved in numerous wine projects around the world, including their namesake Bordeaux. Yet until recently, they had not produced a Champagne and the family thought it was time to do so. Thus, the three branches of their family, including Baron Eric de Rothschild (Chateau Lafite Rothschild), Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (Chateau Mouton Rothschild) and Baron Benjamin de Rothschild (Chateau Clarke), united behind a single project instead of working on separate ones.
For the first time in the family's eventful history, all three branches decided to realize a project conjointly and divide its shares equally. In 2009, the first bottles were introduced to the market and initially launched in Japan, Germany and Australia. It took time, until July 2011, to include the domestic market in their distribution strategy. By then, the brand already had a very good reputation on global markets and was readily accepted in France as well.
Mr Julian Poh, CEO of Bordeaux Liquid Gold, commented: "We are greatly honoured and proud to be appointed as a distributor and will work closely with the team to introduce Champagne Barons De Rothschild to consumers."
At present, Champagne Barons de Rothschild is active in 60 countries around the world and distributes production volumes of 300,000 bottles per annum. Although they maintain their 450 m² headquarters in Reims, the actual winery is located in Vertus on the Cote de Blanc. More than two million bottles are stored in its two cellars. In November 2013, they also bought a mansion in Vertus that is currently being renovated and will soon host several rooms for receptions and tastings.
