Blavod Extreme Spirits is to distribute wine from nine Italian wineries in the US beginning this month. The deal includes Baroncini and Bruno Rocca wine labels.

"We are tremendously excited to share the passions of our producers in Italy with consumers in the US," said Jeff Hopmayer, CEO of BES, in a statement. "These long term agreements continue to expand our base business while helping to create a global beverage alcohol business with a strong brand portfolio."

Baroncini has been producing wine in the Tuscany region of Italy for more than 500 years and is still family-owned. Some of its most popular wines are Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano. Bruno Rocca  produces wine including Barbaresco, Dolcetto, and Chardonnay delle Langhe.

Players Extreme, the flavoured-infused vodka and rum from Blavod, is adding Caramel Vodka and Mango Rum to its line of spirits. The new flavours will be available across the nation this month wherever Players Extreme is sold.

Caramel Vodka and Mango Rum join seven other spirits in the Players Extreme line including "Ultra" Five Times Distilled Vodka along with Green Apple, Cherry, Lemon and Mandtango vodkas, and flavour-infused rums - Banana and Coconut.
