Davna vodka and Skipper rum brands joins Mangrove spirits agency line-up

Published:  01 July, 2015

The Mangrove spirits division of Coe Vintners has won agency deals for a range of Polish vodkas and a rum.

Davna vodkas and Skipper rum are owned by Butterfly Brands and were previously handled by Marblehead Brand Development.

The move is the end game of last year's acquisition of Marblehead by the Greenall's gin group Quintessential Brands.

Ricky Agnew, managing director of Davna and Skipper owner Butterfly Brands, was the founder and principal shareholder in Marblehead until the sale to Quintessential.

Agnew said: "The Marblehead team has done an excellent job with these brands, but we now look forward to continued success with out new distribution partner."

Mangrove managing director Nick Gillett added: "Skipper rum has an established following in the on-trade while Davna, with its high quality flavour range, offers a real point of difference in vodka."

Marblehead is left with a portfolio that includes a number of Quintessential brands, plus Diageo-owned Ypióca cachaça, Don Papa rum and Glen Moray malt whisky.
