Drinks Americas has said it has signed a 15-year distribution deal in Germany with local firm Zwilichiovskij Import-Export.

Zwilichiovskij is an import company specialising in marketing vodka and premium spirits brands that will focus on selling Drinks Americas' brands in high-end bars, hotels, clubs and upscale retail accounts in Germany, the US firm said today (11 December).

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The German group will initially sell Drinks Americas' Trump Vodka and Old Whiskey River Bourbon.

An initial order for 12,000 cases is expected to generate a minimum of $2.5m in 2009, with subsequent orders to follow, Drinks Americas said. Shipments will begin in the first quarter of next year.

The group said in September that net sales fell $200,000 to $1.1m for the first quarter if its fiscal 2009. Net loss improved to $1.3m, compared to $1.6m in the same period last year.
