Lucas Bols, De Kuyper Royal Distillers and Herman Jansen have agreed the carve-up of drinks producer Distilleerderij Cooymans and the wine operations of Delcave/NCK.

The three Dutch companies said earlier today that their Avandis joint venture, which was set up in 2001, will assume responsibility for Cooymans' production and bottling activities for distilled spirits and third-party brands. Lucas Bols, meanwhile, will take control of genever brands Floryn and Legner as well as Leyden Gin, with De Kuyper taking Cooymans Eggnog liqueur and the Koffiekaatje, Millwood and Surfers cream liqueur brands. Herman Jansen will handle Delcave/NCK's wine bottling facility.

Both Cooymans and Delcave/NCK were part of the Dirkzwager Groep, which entered administration last month after its Mitra chain of Dutch off-premise outlets ran into financial difficulties.

"We are pleased that we have been able to acquire the activities of Distilleerderij Cooymans and the wine operations of Delcave/NCK," said Avandis MD Andre de Goede. "As a strong player in this industry, we believe that we can give these activities a healthy future and serve the clients even better with this new combination of know-how and production facilities.

"The acquisition safeguards the continuity of the activities and provides job security for the majority of the staff."

Financial details were not disclosed.
