Rémy Martin plans to plug a gap left by the decline of RTDs with the launch of a fruit and cognac-based liqueur, which is aimed at women who want to mix their own long drinks.

Rémy Red, which marries ripe fruit flavours with a touch of Rémy Martin Cognac, will be distributed by Maxxium UK and is in the process of gaining listings with multiples, specialist off-licences and bars.
