Royal Tokaji has announced that with effect from the 30th January 2012 it is appointing Bibendum Wines Ltd. as its agent for the UK market.

Charlie Mount of Royal Tokaji said: "We would like to thank our existing agent, Blavod, for their exceptional efforts on behalf of the brand. The Royal Tokaji portfolio has enjoyed strong growth in the UK market over the past three years in a challenging trading environment. Our new partnership with Bibendum will allow us to build on these foundations, support our existing partners and bring our unique wines to even more people, particularly in the on-trade and independent sectors."

Ian Muggoch, Director of Buying at Bibendum commented: "We’ve been working with Royal Tokaji for many years supplying a variety of our customers with their wines, so when the opportunity arose to work more directly with them and to develop a wider market we jumped at it. They are the benchmark producer for Tokaji and the breadth of their portfolio provides a fantastic opportunity to bring these historical wines to the attention of a huge range of UK consumers. This is a very exciting partnership and start to 2012 for us."

Royal Tokaji is proud to have played a lead role in the revival of one of the wine world's most storied regions. From Essencia, which redefines rarity, to Dry Furmint, whose character and aromatics excite even the most jaded palate, each wine in the portfolio offers something that cannot be found in any other region of the world. Over the last few years there has been substantial investment in their vineyards, winery and cellars. Today, Royal Tokaji wines are made by combining local traditional methods with the latest winemaking technology.

Royal Tokaji's range of award winning wines includes the Aszú wines on which the region’s fame was founded and more modern creations including Dry Furmint, Mézes Mály Dry Furmint and Late Harvest. The range of Aszú wines consists of Blue Label 5 puttonyos and a unique selection of 6 puttonyos wines. Gold Label, Birsalmás, three First Growth vineyards (Betsek, Nyulászó, Szt. Tamás) and one Great First Growth, Mézes Mály. In truly exceptional years (4 times in our history to date) the legendary Royal Tokaji Essencia is produced.
