A spirits distributor dips its toes into a new market

A Canadian alcohol manufacturing and distribution company set about to expand a lesser-known spirits brand in the market with established, prestigious brands. In particular, the brand team questioned the feasibility of going head-to-head with the leading brand in Canada.

The client now has a solid base from which they can tackle the Canadian market.
