Bacardi USA is expected to award its $15 million Bombay Sapphire gin account to Margeotes/Fertitta & Partners, New York, according to executives close to the situation. Margeotes executives said they hadn't been notified of the win, and directed calls to Bacardi. A Bacardi representative said no decision has been made on the account, which had no recent agency. Margeotes also handles Stolichnaya vodka, which is distributed by United Distillers & Vinters.
