US: Diageo gets Cabin Fever
Diageo has spent an undisclosed amount on Cabin Fever maple flavoured whisky
Diageo has acquired the Cabin Fever maple-flavoured whisky brand from the Robillard family in the US.
The company said today (7 June) that the move, for an undisclosed sum, delivers on the emerging growth trends of flavoured whisky and craft distilling within the US spirits market. The brand is currently only available in the north-east of the US but will roll out nationally towards the end of this year.
Cabin Fever will become the latest addition to Diageo’s catalyst division, which focuses solely on “high potential” brands. The Robillard family will “continue to be heavily involved in the brand”, Diageo said.
Cabin Fever is a 40% abv whisky available at a SRP of US$19.99 per 75cl bottle. The brand joins Bulleit Bourbon and Crown Royal as the North American brown spirit representatives in Diageo's portfolio.
