Jameson's sales soar

SALES of Jameson overseas provided a boost to higher annual profits of drinks giant Pernod Ricard.

Europe's second largest distiller said profits jumped 8pc to €1.9bn on the back of sales, which increased 8pc to €7.6bn.

However, Pernod's subsidiary here, Irish Distillers, said that the outlook for the industry in Ireland is concerning.
