Rémy Cointreau USA Chief Executive Officer Ian McLernon sits down with The Luxury Item's Scott Kerr to discuss navigating the French wine & spirits company through a world of "volatility, uncertainty, chaos, and ambiguity" and which alcohol industry trends will persist amidst a slow return to pre-covid life. McLernon talks about the expansion of Rémy Cointreau's e-commerce strategy, including its partnership with online alcohol delivery service Drizly and launch of an immersive "e-boutique" for its high-end Louis XIII cognac; how centuries-old legacy brands "innovate" and why sustainability is instilled in everything they do. Plus: The story behind Cointreau's "Love Letter" ad in the Super Bowl
