The last few months have been a little crazy and, as such, we have been focusing on high level stories - or stories that happened to cross my desk - here at Bad Boy Blog.

According to the The Moodie Report, Ciroc parent company Diageo announced a 16% rise in profit for the six month period ending December 31, as compared to the same period in 2009. Some Ciroc related notes from the story:

North America contributed most to the growth of vodka, with continued strong momentum in CÓroc and the launch of R÷KK vodka in the premium segment. Smirnoff net sales declined in its largest markets of the US and UK but grew high double digits in the emerging markets, reflecting the strategy of positioning standard products to emerging middle class consumers. ...

CÓroc: CÓroc continued its momentum in the US significantly growing volume and net sales, as well as gaining share in the ultra premium vodka segment. The new Coconut and Red Berry flavours drove overall brand growth and comprised over 50% of total brand volume.

The Coconut and Red Berry flavors were introduced in November of 2009 and now account for more than 50% of overall brand volume. Ciroc volume grew by 128% altogether.

Advertising Age reports that, for the year ending January 23, Ciroc sales totaled $8.8 million, a gain of 71%. This moved the vodka ahead of competitor Belvedere, as the second best selling vodka in the U.S.

In the same period, Belvedere saw sales growth of 7.8% to $7.8 million. This was below the average for the super-premium vodka product category, which grew almost 14%, according to numbers provided by the Distilled Spirits Council.

Back in July, Diddy announced that Ciroc had surpassed Belvedere. The vodka sales leader is Grey Goose, who reported sales of $57.9 million, which was a gain of 1.2%.

The sales numbers exclude Wal-Mart stores, as well as club and liquor store sales.

Check out the clip below for some behind the scenes at the Fabolous video shoot for "You Be Killin Em" from IndustryMuscle.com. Fabolous isn't in the clip, as it mainly follows Ciroc National Director of Promotions Nick Storm. Presumably, Ciroc is sponsoring the video in some way.
