C&C picks up Corona

Irish drinks company C&C has expanded its beer portfolio by becoming the exclusive distributor of Corona and Corona Light in Ireland, through its Gleeson Group arm.

The Bulmers maker already distributes Stella Artois and Brahma.

"Corona leads the 'Sunshine Beer' category around the world and is a brand we have always coveted, so it's a particularly welcome addition," C&C Gleeson brand manager Laura Faulkner said.

C&C shares were up 1.4pc at lunchtime yesterday.
