Blavod Extreme Spirits said it had filled a hole in its portfolio by completing a licence deal for Jago's Vodka Cream.

Blavod announced today (30 July) it had signed a deal with the Shetland Spirit Company for the rights to the product.

The group said the move "fills a gap in the company's portfolio of premium spirits, providing both potential incremental business both in the UK and in overseas markets".

Jago's Vodka Cream liqueur is a premium product created by Tom Jago, part of the team which created Baileys, and is produced in Scotland from pure Scottish cream.

Under the terms of the licence deal, Blavod will pay Shetland 35% of the brand's "net contribution", minus promotion spend, for four years. After this period, Blavod may fully acquire the trademark for GBP1.

Blavod recently also secured intellectual property rights from Shetland for its Blackwood's gin and vodka brands, in a deal worth GBP300,000 (US$593,000).
