International Federation of Spirits Producers
|Legal status||Private company|
|Purpose||Counterfeit protection of international production of spirits|
The International Federation of Spirits Producers is the trade association for the worldwide spirits industry's protection against counterfeit produce.
Spirits are alcoholic drinks that include distilled alcohol, such as gin, liqueurs, vodka, rum, whisky, and brandy. They are high value products. Counterfeit products are sold by subterfuge by re-filling branded spirits bottles.
The IFSP was set up to combat counterfeit spirits around the world. The problem is a big industry.
It includes the nine largest spirits companies -
- Pernod Ricard
- Moët Hennessy
- Rémy Cointreau
- Beam Suntory
- The Edrington Group
- William Grant & Sons
Member companies produce around 300 million cases of spirits per year - around a third of the worldwide total.
Managing Director: Andrew Barber
