Remy Cointreau, the family-owned drinks company, has seen profits decline drastically for the first half as its Metaxa spirit suffered from Greece's debt crisis.

Remy Cointreau's group net profit for the six months ending 30 September 2010 stood at €14.1 million, a 65% decrease on last year's €39.8 million. In a statement the group said the decline was "principally due to the highly unfavourable impact of the decline in Metaxa's sales in Greece."

Reporting its full year results on 2 September, the world's second-largest spirits group by sales said net profit had risen by 1% to €951 million for the year ending 30 June, but saw revenues fall by 2% to €7 billion. Its results were helped by an overall reduction in debt and strong growth in Asian markets.
