According to USA Today, Beam, maker of Jim Beam, purchased Pinnacle Vodka (and Calico Jack rum) for $605 million in cash. Pinnacle, especially the whipped cream flavor, has been massively popular if the discussions on VodkaBuzz have any bearing on reality, so it’s no surprise that the bourbon maker would want to snatch up the brand. Beam says the acquisition should boost shares between 5 and 10 cents. I doubt we’ll be seeing a bourbon flavored vodka any time soon, but this should definitely make Beam’s pockets even heavier.
