Diageo is suing Intercontinental Brands (ICB) for £300,000 over its Vodkat drink. Diageo, which owns Smirnoff, claims Vodkat fails to meet industry standard specifications and breaches European regulations. It says ICB should not be able to call Vodkat a vodka because vodka should be at least 37% proof. Vodkat is a 22% blended spirit. The Mail on Sunday 07/09/08 page 49
