Heaven Hill acquisition Deep Eddy Vodka continued its upward sales trajectory in 2015 with volume sales advancing 55%.
The “handcrafted” brand has experienced rapid growth since its 2011 launch. According to company figures, the brand’s nine litre case sales surpassed 705,000 nine-litre cases last year up from 455,000 in 2014.
