Local brands

Pernod Ricard has a large portfolio of premium international and local brands. 36 strategic brands are organized in the House of Brands, prestigious names in which the Group strongly invest and on which it bases its development.



Imperial is a Scotch whisky distilled from the finest malted barley and Scottish water. Renowned for its authentic, complex, yet smooth flavours, Imperial is Korea’s leading Scotch.

History and know-how

Since its merging in 2004, Imperial has sold over 6 million cases. The brand holds strong appeal for the Korean market, where premium spirits are in particular demand. The range starts with a 12 year-old whisky and stretches all the way up to a 21 year-old blend.
To protect its authenticity and intellectual property, the brand has developed a series of ground-breaking, innovative measures aimed at preventing counterfeit.

Range and Tasting

There are four whiskies in the Imperial range: Imperial 12 Year Old (35cl, 50cl, 70cl), Imperial 17 Year Old (33cl, 45cl), Imperial 19 Year Old (50cl) and Imperial 21 Year Old (45cl).

These whiskies should be enjoyed neat or lengthened with water.
