Foster's said its Carlton and United Breweries unit has extended its deal with UK drinks group Diageo to distribute a full range of draught beer and draught pre-mix spirits products in Australia.

From April 30, the new 10-year deal will see CUB continue to produce and distribute Guinness Draught and Kilkenny Irish Ale Draught. It will also import and distribute Harp Lager Draught and produce Guinness Extra Stout in bottles and cans.

CUB will also take over local production and distribution of all the pre-mix spirit brands, including the Bundaberg Rum and Cola and Johnnie Walker and Cola brands.

Meanwhile, Diageo Australia will be responsible for the marketing and promotion of all its draught and packaged products.
