The sleek, more efficient shape creates an easier
pour while clear glass reveals the glowing amber
liquid inside. The detailed neck and slashed
shoulders capture attention, while its taller stature
and more striking label make this famous liqueur
stand out anywhere.

TAKING NOTICE OF
THE NOT SO OBVIOUS

ustomers know it when they see
it. They notice things like timely
service and a pleasant personality.
It’s like walking out of a movie theatre and
deciding whether you liked the movie. But
just as most of us don’t really know what
goes on behind the scenes of making a
movie; most customers don’t really know
what goes into providing good service.
Here are a few examples of behind
the scenes behind the bar:

Good bartender / other
bartender routine –
Dividing the bar into sections can
cause it. Customers coming in to see one
bartender in particular could also cause
it. And inexperienced bartenders may
tend to do it when his or her co-bartender
started out servicing a customer first. Feel
free to add to this list the next time you
find yourself giving customers a hands-off
treatment.
You don’t want to be the “other”
bartender.
You may not have landed the leading
bartender role but you can earn bestsupporting honors. Help cover the busier
bartender’s section when you can. Make
it a point to stop by customers who so
far have been waited on only by your cobartender. Say things like, “How are you
doing tonight?” “Good to see you,” or “Are
you doing okay here?”

It’s a pleasure to be of service –
Bartending is not just a job. Okay, it’s
a job, but customers should never figure
out that plot twist. Conceal any it’s-just-ajob attitude with good dialogue. Instead of
saying nothing, you say things like, “It’s my
pleasure,” “I’m on it!” or “You got it!”

Roll out the red carpet –
Regulars are our bread and butter
during the slow times and off-season; and
they show us we’re doing something right.
Take away our regulars and what do we
have? Regulars are those people that attract
people. But still, it’s easy to take regulars for
granted. We get a little tired of seeing the
same old faces every time we walk behind
the bar, many are not the greatest tippers,
some we’re not all that crazy about and a
few, shall we say, are pains in the behind
the scenes.
Movie-goers have no idea what
effort goes into good acting. But we do!
Sometimes it takes quite the effort to not
fall out of character with regulars. Now
just remember to begin your “Best Actor
Award” speech with, “I’d like to thank all
the regulars….”

Never play the typecast role –
She quickly maneuvers her way toward
the bar; then looks around before climbing
into a barstool. The bartender slowly
dislodges from his comfortable spot behind
the bar. He tosses a cocktail napkin at her
like a Frisbee and stone-faced says, “What
do you need?” She thinks, is this bartender
having a bad night or is he always this way?
Well…which is it? You’re bored?
Fatigued? You just got a bad tip? An
annoying customer is making you cranky?
You’re in one of your moods? You’re burnt
out by working with the public?
Good bartenders never spoil a happy
ending for customers, especially with an
opening line. ■

Robert Sullivan
Bartender at Azure Restaurant
in The Royal Hawaiian Hotel
& Michel’s at the Colony Surf

Robert “Sully” Sullivan

W

hen I was a teenager,
the legal drinking age in
Hawaii was 18. People
who waited till they were 21 to drink
legally sometimes thought of us as
lucky. Robert Sullivan, known as
“Sully” was still a teenager when he
got his first bartending job at Garden
Court in Liberty House.
Fresh out of High School, he got
a job as a busser at Garden Court.
He had his eye on bartending even
then and went to bartending school
to improve his chances. He let them
know that he completed the course,
and they let him fill in at the bar here
and there. “Soon after that, the main
bartender was offered a job at Michel’s
because they needed someone right
away. However, he also had an offer
to work at the airport bar, which was a
high paying union job, so he took the
airport job and sent me to Michel’s.
It’s one of those situations where I was
in the right place at the right time.”
“Michel’s is a very high end, very
proper kind of place. The clientele
there was mainly older and wealthy,
we had movie stars and Presidents.
Younger people came in mostly for
proms and birthdays. It was different
in the other bars around town. In
1977, it was a kind of wild time, all
the bars were busy in those days,
especially in the summer. Drinking
age in California was 21, so kids
would come here for the summer and
drink. There were a lot of places to

4 Hawaii Beverage guide May 2009

drink and dance at that time. There’s
not many places like that now.”
He still loves working at Michel’s.
He says, “ I’ve been there 30 years
and I still never get tired of looking
out at the water. It’s like what you
would think a restaurant in Hawaii
would look like: open air, right on the
beach, you can hear the waves roll up
on the sand. You can see the ‘green
flash’ on the horizon.” At that point,
I had to interrupt him to ask for more
details about how to see this mythic
“green flash”. He said, “You have to
time it because you can’t stare at the
sun for a long period of time. It should
be a really clear horizon without cloud
formations, and just as it’s about to
disappear, the top tip of the sun will
change from yellowish to lime green.
Sometimes it’s bigger, sometimes
it’s smaller. It lasts for two or three
seconds. When it’s a particularly
good one, you can hear people along
Waikiki clap because when the sun
goes down, we all kind of stop to
watch the sunset.”
I asked him about the bar at
Azure which he works at on the
weekends. He says he feels very
fortunate to be working at Azure in
The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, one of
the premier hotels in Waikiki. He
was interested in a part-time job there
and was spotted serendipitously by
Joey Gottesman, the Royal Hawaiian
Beverage Manager, in the lobby who
put in a good word for him. He says,

at Azure, they do a lot of fresh fruit
juices in the drinks. The drinks are
all hand crafted. The bar has no
blenders, and no soda guns. The
cocktails all give you an idea of
fresh muddled fruit. “People enjoy
the freshness of the cocktails, the
drinks are a lot smoother, not too
tart and not too sweet.” Recently, I
had a chance to sip on some of those
fresh juice cocktails at the elegantly
renovated Mai Tai bar and enjoyed
their craftsmanship and balance
immensely.
There was a time when Sully
almost bought a business servicing
Aloha Airlines. Fortunately, just
before any money was exchanged,
he went on vacation to China with
his fiancé Cynthia Fenner, the wine
buyer of Nieman Marcus. When he
returned, Aloha Airlines was no
longer in business. If his vacation
was any shorter, he might easily have
suffered significant financial losses.
Sometimes being lucky requires that
you be in the right place at the right
time. Sometimes being lucky requires
that you NOT be in a certain place
at a certain time. It seems Sully has
both types of luck. They say that
good things happen to good people,
and in the case of Sully, it happens to
be true. ■

best on the island. And for dessert,
their ice cream pies are fantastic and
huge. As a matter of fact, Olympic

everything at really reasonable prices.

In recognition of its “Official Drink of the
Kentucky Derby” designation, Early Times
commissioned renowned equine artist Celeste
Susany to create an original oil painting of
an actual scene at Churchill Downs® for its
2009 Derby bottle. 2009 marks Celeste’s 10th
anniversary of painting the artwork for the
Early Times Mint Julep commemorative bottle.
Entitled “Dueling Towards Destiny”, this year’s
painting depicts two powerhouse horses in stride
racing towards the finish line with the Derby
crowd and famed Twin Spires in the background.
“Celeste’s work captures the true essence and
emotion of Derby day,” said Joe Murray, Brand
Manager for Early Times Kentucky Whisky.
“The Early Times Mint Julep bottle has truly
become a collectible among art, horse racing
and whisky fans and is a must-have for Derby
parties as the perfect way to serve a delicious
mint julep in less than ten seconds.”
During this year’s Derby week, more than
140,000 Early Times Mint Juleps are expected to
be served at Churchill Downs. Over the past 22
years, more than 2.5 million Early Times Mint
Juleps have been served between Kentucky
Oaks® and Derby Days at Churchill Downs.
This year’s Derby will take place May 2, 2009 in
Louisville, Kentucky.

ust Tacos in Millilani Town Center serves up more
than just tacos. They serve a nice array of traditional
Mexican cuisine, tequilas, margaritas, and exclusively
Mexican beers. The décor is hip and earthy. Owner Jesus
Santoya describes the impression as, “Cantina style which
is more of a feeling. It’s the sense of bringing the outdoors
indoors. It’s a rustic earthy kind of style like the feeling you
get from the earthy pueblos of Arizona. This is what we tried
to capture.” In every aspect of the restaurant, he does
everything possible to be as authentic as possible right
down to their “south of the boarder” hospitality.
A weekly patron, Kevin Norris, sidled up to the bar
and started talking about how much he loves the place.
He said, “They treat you like family here. The service
is great. No matter how busy they are. We came here
one night when they were slammed. Service was kind
of slow, so we sat outside. Then “Momma” (the owners
mother) came outside with two tamales and said, ‘Here
you go complements of the restaurant for being patient
and waiting.’ We didn’t expect her to do that, but she
did. That’s what draws us here: the authentic Mexican
food, the service, and the hospitality. We try to bring
them more customers all the time, and once they eat
here, they’re hooked.”
Santoya comments, “We use only the freshest authentic
ingredients imported from LA to create authentic Mexican
flavors.” They even make their own tortillas daily. If you
stop by during lunch time, you’ll be able to see their chef
making fresh tortillas off to the side of the bar.
They do two styles of margarita: classic and traditional.
The classic style is what most people expect a margarita
to taste like; it’s sweeter than the traditional. The
traditional style uses fresh juices all hand squeezed right
in front of you if you’re sitting at the bar. Christopher
Lennon, their General Manager, explains that they
change their Tequila Well occasionally between Jose
Quervo Gold and Cassadores Blanco to show people
just how much changing the tequila in your drink can
change the margarita. Customers can call tequilas in all

their margaritas. Though figuring out which tequila to
order might be a little overwhelming since they shelve
327 different tequilas. Christopher says there is only one
bar that has more tequilas, and it’s in Las Vegas.
They also offer tequila flights which start at $10.
The concept according to Santoya is, “To take the
intimidation factor out of it. It’s our way of saying you don’t
have to spend much money, just try the tequila. Once you
start getting into the finer tequilas, you can enjoy sipping
them as much as you would a fine cognac.”
Christopher explained, “We also have a Tequila Club
comprised of people who have done over 150 shots of
tequila, over any length of time, keeping track of them
on their shot cards. We have tequila dinners and special
events for Tequila Club members. Those folks tend to
enjoy the fresh lime margaritas the most: the Don Chui,
Trust me, Summers Passion, Canton Ginger, and St
Germains Elder Flower margarita. These higher end
drinks made with fresh juice will “Wow” you and make
think of the interesting possibilities with margaritas.”
Asked to recommend a dish, Christopher said, “My
personal favorite is the Mocha Hete which is served in a
large lava stone bowl and consists of melted queso fresco,
lightly seasoned chicken, shrimp & steak toped with
homemade pico de gallo and served with hot homemade
corn tortillas-- absolutely delicious.”
Santoya would like to encourage people to come out
to Mililani and try a “south of the boarder” experience.
“If you are looking to escape the city scene and have a good
margarita, then this is the place.” As additional incentive,
Blue or Yellow Card holders will receive 20% off their
tab.
The kitchen is open from 11-9:30, and the bar is
open till the last customer leaves at around 11-12 on the
weekdays and 2AM on the weekends. For information,

360 Eco Luxury Vodka Introduces Further Innovations to the Spirits Industry
World’s First Eco Friendly
Luxury Vodka Launches Recycle Bin
Shipping Container and Unique Bottle
Handle for Easier Pours

T

he
Earth
Friendly
Distilling
Company,
makers of 360 Vodka,
have set an even higher standard
for the spirits industry with their
latest innovations that promote
reusability and demonstrate their
unsurpassed commitment to the
environment.
Beginning immediately, 12
bottles of 360 Vodka are now
being shipped in reusable, blue
recycle bin containers, similar to
those used in curb side recycling
programs.
“Our new blue bin totes are
the perfect shipping containers
for 360 Vodka,” said Ed Pechar,
Chairman of the Earth Friendly
Distilling Company. “As the
world’s only eco friendly luxury
vodka, we are dedicated to
sustainability and these containers
not only provide our customers
with reusable, recyclable solutions,
but encourage others to make
small changes that can have a big
impact on the environment.”
Designed
to
promote
recycling at home and work, the
blue recycling bins will also be
a more sustainable and welcome
addition to the stacks of boxes
wholesalers currently provide to
their customers for carrying home
their purchased goods.
In addition to the shipping
containers, the Earth Friendly
Distilling Company has designed a
unique bottle handle for 1.75 liter
sizes of 360 Vodka. The recycled
metal handle aids in holding and
pouring the product and is also
reusable. The device fits snugly
over the bottle and snaps into
place to ensure ease of use and a
more stabilized pour, while helping

prevent spills and breakage.
Beginning March 1st, all 1.75 liter
bottles will be shipped with the
reusable handle.
“This innovation is in
direct response to feedback from
mixologists, consumers and our
accounts, especially those who
specialize in bottle service,” said
Pechar. “Knowing our valued
customers like the larger size
bottle and need the easiest pour
possible, we are thrilled to provide
them with a solution that is both
recyclable and reusable.”
These innovations advance
360 Vodka’s position as an
environmental leader in the
industry. Along with using
biodiesel fuelled machinery, state
of the art distillation equipment
and recycled materials for their
glass bottles and labels, 360 Vodka
donates $1.00 for every swing top
closure returned for recycling to
environmental charities.
About The Earth Friendly
Distilling Company 360 Vodka
is created by the Earth Friendly
Distilling Company, a division of
McCormick Distilling Company,
located in historic Weston,
Missouri. Founded in 1856,
McCormick Distilling Co. is the
oldest continuously operating
distillery west of the Mississippi.
The
company’s
first
ever
eco¬luxury brand, 360 Vodka, won
the Beverage Tasting Institute’s
2007 Gold Medal award, and the
2008 Rising Star award given by
the Beverage Information Group.

value: the time
for Wine is noW
in the chase for shrinking dollars, the wine trade is generating
a brave new world of wine values
By W. R. Tish

C

oming off 15 (or is it 16? who’s counting?) years of dynamic growth,

America’s wine culture has been blooming. Now this. Pundits don’t have a name for
it yet, but with the economy seeming to stagger more dramatically each week, no
industry is untouched. How will the deep and extended downturn impact wine?

It’s too soon for statistics to paint a broad and clear picture, but
based on interviews with pros at every level of the trade, wine’s current experience appears to be more of a clash than a crash.
In essence, the free-market system is grinding up against the threetier system as never before in history. Wine’s almost inconceivable
number of SKUs—at price points that range from stupid-cheap to
stupid-expensive—coupled with a national thirst that seems far from
slaked, has generated an incredible downward pressure on prices. The
pie, growing so deliciously for so many years, may not be shrinking at
all, but it is suddenly—and rapidly—reassembling itself. And players
in every nook of the business are scrambling to keep their sliver.
It all starts, of course, with how consumers are shifting their dollars. Trading down was in full force over the holidays, according to
Katherine Moore, manager of Union Square Wines & Spirits in NYC,
with Cava and Prosecco cannibalizing Champagne like never before.
And it hasn’t abated in the first quarter of 2009; conspicuous consumption is history and sticker-shopping is now the norm. She adds,

however, “People who like wine still have a passion for it. They are
spending less per bottle, but they aren’t opposed to treating themselves to a mixed case.”
It is hard to say yet if consumption will keep rising in the new,
definitely-not-improved economy, but people are clearly becoming
more conscious of what they spend at retail. As Christy Frank, proprietor of Frankly Wines in NYC, puts it: “I think consumers have
always wanted wines that overdeliver for the price. These days, they
just feel a little more justified in asking for it.”

Will the Real ‘Values’ Please Stand Up?

In hard times, the notion of value takes on fresh importance. Not just
price, but value. Value is not a commodity, it is a concept. Definitions
differ greatly, of course, as one drinker’s idea of a great value is a $18.99
box of Merlot, another’s may be a $6 anything-but-Merlot by the glass,
while yet another person’s definition may be a $25 Pomerol. The rela-

valueWines
tive spread of what value means is bound to stay
expansive, yet the appeal of what consumers
consider “value” is likely to intensify.
How can you apply the concept of value to
your business to satisfy the consumers who are
demanding it? Specifics will vary based on your
wine niche, but it may be helpful to approach
the concept of value as an evolving target. On
one hand, there are “Classic Values”—driven
by logical strategies wine drinkers have long
applied to get more “bang for the buck” [see
sidebar]. On the other hand, there seems to
be a bunch of brand new value opportunities,
borne directly from the sense of urgency that
is infusing the industry from producers right
through drinkers. Here is a closer look at where
the “New Values” are.

“i think consumers have
always wanted wines that
overdeliver for the price.
these days, they just feel
a little more justified in
asking for it.”
– Christy frank, frankly Wines, nYC

Deals, deals, deals.

If you haven’t sensed the volatility in the wine
pipeline since fall of 2008, you haven’t been
working. “The slump is on everyone’s lips,” says
Mike Duffy, a sales rep for the heavily Italian
portfolio of Selected Estates of Europe. “What
I see are shrinking inventories and ordering
on-the-spot, with everyone looking for deals.”
And the pressure is working its way back up the
chain: knowing they need better pricing to get
the orders from their increasingly demanding
retail and restaurant accounts, distributors are
squeezing producers to hold prices if not drop
them further. The net result is situational bargains galore. The trick, of course, for wholesale
buyers is to jump on the deals that fit their
particular clientele. In short, nobody is rushing to bring anything in the door that they

Big is beautiful.

Consumers can do the
Quality-Price Ratio math. They do it all the
time when they buy jugs of Tide, cases of
Pepsi and five-gallon containers of water. The
current crisis has opened the door for them to
re-think buying wine in bulk. Frankly Wines’
Frank says, “Our customers are increasingly accepting of wines in new packaging
formats—Yellow + Blue 1L Tetra Pak, Roger
Perrin 3L boxes, 1L jugs of Austrian Grüner
and Zweigelt sealed under crown cap. It takes
a little reassurance, but once they understand
that these formats can deliver good wine and
great value, they usually come back for more.”
As long as the economy is weak, large formats
are bound to stay strong.

Brands are back.

There’s an old saying in the wine industry: the
wine doesn’t know what bottle it’s in. But consumers certainly do. Kevin Connor, director of
marketing for Robert Mondavi’s Woodbridge,
Private Selection and Solaire wines, points out
that after a decade of the wine industry’s top
10 brands representing an increasingly smaller
share of the overall market, the slide did an
about-face in 2008: the top 10 gained ground
relative to their peers. Connor attributes the
turnaround to consumers’ attitudes. “When
times were good, wine drinkers were more adventurous in terms of trying new labels,” he explains. “Now, with their budgets tight, they are
looking to play it safe and returning to brands
they trust.” Call it the comfort factor: for dayto-day drinking, there is real value in buying
wine that won’t disappoint.

New ‘power reds.’

For lovers of red wine, seeking more bang
for the buck is not just about the buck, it’s
also about the BANG. After a long spell of
promoting the sheer power of 90-point reds,

2009
Australia: their glut, your gain.

Australia is one big magnum of irony
winewise; amid years of serious
drought, there is nonetheless more Oz
wine in our pipeline than ever. Some
say the glut is over, but there should be
plenty of excellent Shiraz-based wines
(e.g., Marquis Philips, Red Dust and
Penfolds’ Koonunga Hill) still reaching
our shelves at prices in the low teens.

New “sweet spot” on wine
lists. Fine dining has been hit

harder and faster than wine retail
since the economy turned sour.
Responding to slower traffic and
trading down, restaurateurs are
targeting wines that can resell in
the $30-$39 per bottle range.
And more are coming up with
special promotions to spur wine
sales, such as half-price nights

Green is beautiful. Consumers’
willingness to go green when given
the opportunity seems to be
holding up in recent months. For
many, there is real value
implicit in wines made from
organically grown grapes
and sustainable practices.

national chain front, Ruby
Tuesday, which includes 800
restaurants across the country,
recently launched a value

Luxe is a four-letter word. Times are

Home cookin’. The flip side of the

restaurant doldrums: people are buying
excellent wines at better-than-restaurant
prices and enjoying them at home. For
America’s growing gourmet culture, this is a
natural transition in tough times.

“When times were good, wine drinkers were
more adventurous in terms of trying new labels.
now, with their budgets tight, they are looking to
play it safe and returning to brands they trust.”
– Kevin Connor, director of marketing,
mondavi’s Woodbridge, Private selection and solaire Wines

now it is up to the industry to show
them they can still get impact wines
for less coin. The current crisis is the
perfect opportunity to turn customers
onto wines that deliver the style they
want and save them money. From
Spain, Jumilla and Toro say kaboom;
ditto Aglianicos from southern Italy.
In California, one classic example of
trading down by style is suggesting
full-bodied Zin to high-end Cabernet
drinkers. But don’t stop there: Petite
Sirah is poised for a star turn. Bogle
has long been considered a staple by
penny-pinching red enthusiasts, and
Ravenswood and Red Truck have
recently added excellent bottlings to
their lineups, priced to sell for under
$12. The most fertile new power red
of all may be Malbec priced in the
high teens. Clos de la Siete, Amancaya, Achaval Ferrer and Ernesto
Catena’s “Tahuan” are blockbusters in
style but easy on the wallet. Think of

the Napa Cab drinker: wouldn’t he be
thrilled to get a six-pack of killer Malbecs for less than the price of a bottle
of Dominus? I see these reds winning
over lovers not only of big Cabs but
also heady Aussie Shirazes.
Perhaps the real key to navigating
the coming months will be for wine
sellers to confront the crisis head on.
Everyone knows times are tough, but in
terms of wine, everyone knows there is a
lot of good juice out there. Be proactive.
Make sure you have wines in diverse
categories and distinct price points that
you know are good buys. And then,
make sure your customers know it. Flag
them with shelf talkers. Set up a special
section on the floor or your wine list.
Shout it. This is no time to be whispering. By addressing the economy directly,
your clientele will realize that A) you’re
not being passive, and B) you’re on their
side when it comes to value. They’ll
drink to that. ■

CLASSIC or

MoveMenT for 2009 is unpredicTable
By Jenny Adams

T

he gin category has always been a
precarious one, often overshadowed by
vodka. Today, it’s come into its own,
known for the distinct botanicals that find
foreground in its flavor profiles and its much
celebrated appearance in classic cocktails that
are now once again so in fashion. Yet, 2009 is
a challenging year across all categories and gin’s
future could be just as uncertain.
According to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), the total gin category has been fairly stagnant since 2003. Last year,
gin was the 6th largest spirits category at 11.1 million cases compared to 11.0
million cases in 2003. The winner within the category, however, has been
the super-premium segment, which in that same time period, has grown
from 49,000 cases to 73,000 cases, almost a 50% increase. In terms of revenue, suppliers sold over $900 million in gin in 2008 versus $852 million in
2003. Gin, of course, is still far outpaced by vodka, the #1 spirits category,
which accounted for 53.3 million cases last year.
Gin has two unique advantages that help push the category along:
the influence of its history and a two-part demographic of drinkers.
“I think there are definitely two parts to gin’s resurgence,” says Allen Katz, director of mixology and spirits education for Southern Wine &

Spirits of new York. “one, you
have the segment of consumers in
the 60+ age group, and those people
certainly grew up with an understanding
of gin, even if the quality of the cocktails
during those years was probably questionable. Secondly, you have a renewed interest in classic cocktails from the youth
movement of bartenders—many of whom
are under 30—stimulating interest in contemporary gins.”

off-premise sales are still heartiest in terms
of mature brands such as Beefeater, Tanqueray, Bombay and Plymouth, with the
on-premise remaining the playground of the
botanical-forward, artisan brands like Aviation, G’vine, Hendrick’s, Martin Miller’s
and Bulldog.
Plymouth is Pernod ricard’s fastest
growing gin brand, but Matthew rodwick,
Pernod ricard’s off-premise district manager
for metro new York, says Beefeater traded
down in off-premise sales in 2008.
“We actually had a healthy performance
from Seagram’s, which is our more value
brand,” he explains. “It’s a good, solid base

gin, gin.” Inspired from an original recipe from the group’s founder,
Beefeater 24 uses a blend of Chinese green
and rare Japanese Senchas teas as its main
botanical. Since education is key to pushing the gin category, Beefeater 24 has joined
forces with a few other gin producers to create an informative symposium on the spirit
that will take place this summer in new
York and San Francisco.
As the on-premise education for consumers continues, the effects trickle down
to increase off-premise sales of the contemporary brands, too. “If you walk into a retail store now versus three years ago, there
are more brands available,” says Charlotte
voisey. As brand ambassador for Hendrick’s
gin, voisey attributes the success of Hendrick’s to quality, followed by approachability and the aesthetic appeal of the packaging. Much like tequila, the newer gins profit
from unique packaging – whether it’s being
solicited from a backbar or perused on a store
shelf. on almost every brand’s bottles, consumers are finding educational information
on the back label, but the bottles themselves
have evolved to help symbolize the quality
of what’s inside.
Hendrick’s dark bottle and “antique”
label are a colorful nod to the category’s
roots in apothecaries; Magellan, the original blue gin known for its exotic botanicals,
like iris, beckons in its bottle, emblazoned
with an illustration of the famed explorer’s
ship; and G’vine’s bottle is bright green to
represent the trademark essence of Cognac
vine flowers.

“every spirit has its own equity drink,”
Magarian explains. “Tequila has the margarita. Cachaça has the Caipirinha. I
looked at gin and realized that it has so
many equity cocktails – the negroni, the
Southside, the Aviation, the Martini –
and in the next five to 10 years it would be
a major, major player.” What Magarian also predicted and anticipated
with the launch of his own brand
and other new gins was the inevitable controversy surrounding the
experimentation of new botanicals,
not just juniper.
“It’s mind boggling to me that
people haven’t done this before
now,” Magarian says. “Genever was
never that focused on juniper. once
continuous distillation was developed, the
juniper came to the forefront. I don’t see
why now there should not be another evolution. I think gin will always be defined
by juniper’s characteristics, but that’s why
I coined the term ‘new Western Gin.’ I
would like to see a more clear definition
of ‘London Dry,’ in order to keep that category from being diluted. We pushed some
buttons with Aviation, and it got people
thinking. I think it’s really cool there has
been such an interest.”
It’s not surprising there is an interest given how dynamic the category has become,
whether it’s the refined new Amsterdam
Gin, a nod to new York’s old-world history
with subtle citrus flavors; Whitley neill, the
London Dry Gin inspired by Africa, featuring the iconic baobab fruit; or White rock

robert Cassell, Bluecoat’s master distiller,

flavor complexes that work off each other.
So many people anticipate just the flavor of

an impact so far. “The on-premise is really

TIMeS To CoMe
From cardamom and coriander to
cinnamon and ginger, the complexity of flavors is astounding,
and it’s shaping cocktails onpremise. But several companies
are addressing both the mature audience
and the younger drinkers by launching a
more contemporary style alongside a traditional one. G’vine is producing their grape
and ginger-influenced Floraison gin, but has
also been offering their [nouaison] since
May 2008, which is stronger, spicier and
has more appeal to traditional connoisseurs.
Martin Miller’s offers consumers an additional 90-proof Westbourne strength, and
Beefeater 24 will undoubtedly spark some
conversation as this mature brand takes a
stab at the young mixologist’s market.
What is unclear is how the economy will
affect gin. new York’s Prohibition Distillery
president, John Walsh, has plans to launch a
new gin in the near future. Besides keeping
in line with Prohibition Distillery’s speakeasy
theme, he feels his gin still has terrific sales
potential for this troubled economy. His marketing will hearken to hard times overcome
in the 1930s, and his product will be produced at small, independent, already-existing
farm distilleries around the country.
“The majority of the products we want
to rub elbows with are in the $35 range, but
we will set the price significantly lower to
attract a client who wants quality for less
cost,” Walsh says. “As we all know, alcohol is
a product that is somewhat recession proof.
People drink when they are happy and when
they are sad, and I haven’t had one person
express the slightest discomfort that we are
launching in this climate.” n

John McDonnell
Chief Operating Officer,
Patrón Spirits International A.G.

WS: How will you approach your marketing

{

and advertising efforts this year?

John McDonnell, COO, Patrón Spirits International A.G., sat down with The
Beverage Network’s William Slone to talk about the ultra-premium white
spirits consumer, why luxury brands are a crucial component to keeping your
business healthy and why hospitality has never been more important.

On the industry
WILLIAM SLONE: DISCUS estimates
that on-premise business was down
about 5.5% last year. How has that
effected Patrón, which is such a strong
on-premise brand?
JOHN McDONNELL: There is definitely
a shift into the off-premise, which grew
about 3% last year. But overall Patrón
grew 23% last year, when the tequila
category grew only 4%. The superpremium category grew by 10.6 %, and we
accounted for the majority of that growth.

created with the care and attention that
can only be accomplished by hand. People
recognize Patrón as a high-quality spirit.

I do think the on-premise consumer is still
dining out, just less frequently.
WS: How is it that Patrón has
managed to stay strong while so
many other brands are reporting
slower sales?

JM: Our advertising and brand
message is consistent, which
is very important when
you’re building a brand.
And above all, we have a
very high-quality product,
produced from the best
agave, and each batch is

JM: Unlike many other suppliers, we’re
not backing off our marketing plans. The
Unilevers and Pepsis of the world have
proved that when you continue to market
your brands during downturns, you are
well-positioned and strong when the
market turns around.

∂aN

i N f O r m a L c O N v e r s at i O N w i t h i N d u s t r y L e a d e r s

“I always encourage retailers to
expand their shelf presence of luxury
goods—more floor displays and more
facings up front.”

JM: As a result of both the economy as
well as all the consolidation in our industry,
I think the odds are very much against
most new products succeeding today. You
have to have a unique selling proposition,
which we do. Brands that aren’t supported
with packaging and advertising will fail.
Retailers don’t want to tie their money up
in dead inventory.
WS: What are some other exciting brands
in your portfolio?

On Luxury Brands
WS: You believe retailers should continue
to emphasize luxury products even during
a soft economy. Why is this?

JM: It takes three or four bottles of standard
tequila to equal the profit of one bottle
of Patrón. I always encourage retailers
to expand their shelf presence of luxury
goods—more floor displays and more facings
up front. The same is true for the on-premise.
There was a recent study which showed that
the number of restaurant consumers who
make their drink decisions based on what
is on the menu is extremely high. These are
things that do not cost any money, and will
enhance margins.
WS: Why do you discourage retailers
from discounting?

JM: Certain categories are loss leaders,
to get people in the door, but this should
not be the case with luxury brands with
high margins. Are people going to buy a
$45 bottle of Patrón because it is $2 off?
Retailers are just sacrificing their margins
when they do this.

On New Products
WS: Last year, the Patrón Spirits Company
got into the vodka business with Ultimat
Vodka. How is that brand doing?

JM: People tell me that we picked an
interesting time to launch an ultra-

premium vodka. I do believe it will take
a bit longer to build this brand in this
economy. But we are doing the same
things we did with Patrón, and we firmly
believe it is all about a quality product
and quality distribution. You won’t hear us
ask any of our wholesalers “How many
cases of Ultimat did you sell today?” For
us, the focus isn’t on volume but on menu
placements, samplings and exposure.
Ultimat was served at the Oscars this year,
and we have a global ad campaign that
we are adapting locally.
We are also well-positioned at $40,
which is a nice middle ground between the
many vodkas around $30 and those priced
at $60 or above. We have a 30% reorder
in every market we are in, but I suppose the
most important thing here, is that we are
prepared for a slow, successful bid.
WS: How about the many other new
brands we’ve seen launched in the last
year? Do you think they will have a hard
time succeeding?

JM: The hottest product in our portfolio is
Patrón XO Café Coffee Liqueur. The staffs
in restaurants and bars have adopted it as
their brand. We were up 80% last year and
we’re up 47% through February this year.
WS: As an industry veteran, what is the
most important thing retailers can do to
protect and build their businesses in this
challenging time?

JM: We are in the hospitality business, and
we can’t forget that. This is a people business
and personality and service really matters. I
lived in NYC in the early 1980s, and in those
days when you bought a few drinks, the
bartender bought you one back. That doesn’t
happen anymore but it should. Building
relationships in this difficult economy really
helps. Our products are about relaxation
and fun, and we are lucky that nothing can
replace them. The beverage alcohol business
will be here forever.

“[Ultimat] is well-positioned
at $40, which is a nice middle
ground between the many
vodkas around $30 and those
priced at $60 or above.”

Stiff Competition
Across the country, top bartenders compete to
create the best cocktails—and help build brands.

Finlandia
Vodka Cup

Shaking it up at an
Averna competition

A Drambuie
competition in
Austin, TX

For years there may have been flair bartending competitions (think
Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail) but up until recently there were
just a few cocktail contests in America. This recent trend is indicative
of just how much spirit companies now rely upon bartenders for creating new drinks and for driving drink trends. It also helps that these
events almost guarantee media attention for the brands.

Cocktails and Limericks
These competitions, of course, revolve around bartenders who mix up
drinks featuring the sponsor’s brand. But some spirit companies add
a twist. The annual International Finlandia Vodka Cup has an Iron
Chef-like round where bartenders are given a mystery basket filled
with 10 items (of which they can only use four) and have just 15
minutes to come up with and prepare an original drink. Hendrick’s
Gin, which is known for its creative promotions and unusual botanicals, held a competition this winter where bartenders from across
the country not only had to create a cocktail but also perform a
limerick. “I wanted to put the emphasis on the personality of the bartender just as much as the taste of the cocktail – rewarding showmanship and entertainment,” says Charlotte Voisey, Hendrick’s Gin
brand champion. “The competition was designed to further the spe-

O

ver the last few years,
many of the country’s
best bartenders have been
feverishly creating cocktails.
But these tasty drinks aren’t
just for bar menus — they’re for
cocktail competitions sponsored by
spirits companies. In an attempt to win
over both mixologists and the public,
many of the biggest brands, including
Absolut Vodka, Domaine de Canton
and Drambuie, have all recently
sponsored shake-offs.

cial relationship that Hendrick’s enjoys with
bartenders all over the USA.” To build nationwide buzz, the Scottish spirit held preliminary contests in eight cities, including
New York, Boston, Miami and Las Vegas,
with the finals held in Los Angeles.

Judging the Judges
These contests not only draw talented bartenders from top bars but also impressive
judges. Last spring, Rhum Clément’s annual
New York Cocktail Challenge was judged
by an all-star bench, including Tony AbouGanim, who created the cocktail program
at the Bellagio Resort; Julie Reiner, who
co-owns New York hotspots the Flatiron
Lounge and the Clover Club; Jim Meehan,
co-editor of the cocktail book Mr. Boston
and general manager of New York’s PDT;

Garden.) And the finals of the mid-winter
International Finlandia Vodka Cup are held
in a giant snow dome up in the Arctic Circle. Unfortunately, the site’s low temperatures can wreak havoc with certain ingredients, like honey which hardens in the cold.
Still, there is at least one advantage of the
weather: “The best part is that you don’t
need to cool down your glassware,” says Finlandia’s Raittinen.
Slightly warmer, the final mix-off for the
contest sponsored by the bittersweet Italian
liqueur, Averna, took place on a terrace
overlooking the Sicilian Ionian Sea in Italy.
“Going to the finals is the prize,” says Don
Lee, a New York City-based bartender who

take on a rum and Coke, which doesn’t ac-

Serious Tips
One reason these competitions have become
popular is that they offer bartenders a way
to meet their colleagues from around the
country or around the world. “We give the
bartenders a forum,” says Markku Raittinen,
Finlandia Vodka’s global brand ambassador.
These competitions also offer contestants
something else more tangible: travel and
prizes. For one thing, the finals of many of
these contests take place in exotic locations.

New Competitions
Follow the Trend
While Finlandia has been holding a cocktail competition for over 10 years, many
other brands have only recently started offering contests. The sweet Scottish liqueur
Drambuie, which is made according to a
recipe created over 260 years ago, began
holding cocktail contests around the country for the first time last August. The brand
held contests in seven cities, including New
York, Portland, Denver and Austin and in
each town, 10 local bartenders battled it
out. Some of the winning recipes were very
simple, like the “Ginger Dram” created by
Mindy Kucan from the Hilton Hotel in
Austin, which calls for just Drambuie, Grey
Goose and orange blossom water. Others were much more complicated like the
“Drambuie High Plains Drifter” a creation
from David Shenaut of the Teardrop Lounge
in Portland, which featured five ingredients
including gin, rosebud-infused honey syrup
and lemon juice. Drambuie is planning on
holding another series of competitions this
year and a national contest in 2010.
The ginger-based liqueur Domaine de
Canton also held its Bartender of the Year
Competition for the first time this past
March. The finals of the contest took place

Ladies First

Hpnotiq reels in the female
demographic with a new look
and nightlife-centered platform.
By Alia Akkam

W

hen Hpnotiq, a refreshing blend of natural tropical fruit
juices, premium vodka and a touch of Cognac, launched
in 2002, it impressed the nightclub scene with its seductive bottle and vibrant blue hue. While those selling points are still
as prominent, Heaven Hill Distilleries is taking Hpnotiq in a new
direction this spring and targeting the ladies.

“We’ve taken a look at the brand and
discovered that we’re attracting more women
than men,” says senior brand manager, Justin
Ames. “We’re targeting Hpnotiq to women
in the 21-40 age range which encompasses
many different life stages. There is one thing
that’s important to all of them, though,
and that is the idea of a “Girls Night Out.”
When these ladies get together they like to
have something that makes their night a
little more fun and Hpnotiq fits right in.”

Attracting the
Demographic
For those women who are 21-25, the ones
most likely to go out on a frequent basis, but
perhaps not familiar with Hpnotiq, Heaven
Hill is focusing on the on-premise. For the
older end of the demographic, the emphasis
is on national chains and an off-premise push
with home entertaining at its core.
“When you’ve got a product like Hpnotiq
that stands out because of its bottle, color and
the eye-catching drinks made with it, that starts
conversation among friends,” notes Ames.
On the younger end of the spectrum,
Hpnotiq has created its relevant Night
School for Girls promotion, a series of na-

tional nightclub events where ladies out on
the town learn the skills of a professional
DJ while drinking the likes of “Roq Candy”
cocktails. Hpnotiq’s partnership with DJ
Scratch Academy and appearances from celebrity DJs and personalities helps feed the
energy of the brand.
“The industry has become more like classical brand packaging; you have to provide
an occasion for when to use Hpnotiq. “Girls
Night Out” does just that,” adds Ames.
Capitalizing upon the growth of online
social media, Hpnotiq has promoted “Girls
Night Out” by sending invitations via Facebook and allowing the ladies to share memories of their celebratory nights via photos and
personalized animated videos.
Naturally, the female bonding theme
extends to bachelorette parties and wed-

dings, where Hpnotiq has devoted a significant digital spend to support the “Girls
Night Out” platform.

New Look
Along with the new marketing platform, Hpnotiq has also introduced a slightly tweaked
bottle which rolled out April 1st and will
continue to hit key distributor markets this
month. The same bottle shape and signature
color are still visible, important equity for the
brand, but now the design has been simplified in an effort to be more user-friendly and
relevant. On the front, the natural, exotic
fruit juices in the recipe are played up; the
back explains how to best use the liqueur. “A
lot of people look at the Hpnotiq bottle and
they’re not sure how and when to use it. We
now provide that information and what it delivers,” Ames points out. Their new creative
look matches, featuring clever copy like the
tag line for their trade ad: “Blue La La. The
girls are out tonight.” and “We’re not ashamed
to admit it. We’ve had a little work done.”
With a focus on close consumption,
Hpnotiq is also reaching out to bartenders,
organizing industry nights where they can
communicate the importance of their new
female target.
“In the past, Hpnotiq was very influencer-focused and now we’re taking it more mass
market,” explains Ames. “We’re not turning
the lights off on what we have accomplished
in the past, we’re leveraging where we’re going in the future.” n

RED HOT
EXOTIC PISCO MAKES
I T S M A R K S TAT E S I D E
By Alia Akkam

i

t wasn’t that long ago bartenders were
introducing a new Latin cocktail to their
curious customers called the “Mojito.”
The Cuban-inspired drink, made with rum
and fresh muddled mint, combined just the
right elements: it was refreshing, had exotic
allure and was quite easy to whip up. While
Mojitos are now favorites at the bar and to
make at home, there is another international
drink poised for making its way into the
canon of American cocktail culture just as
successfully: the Pisco Sour.

The national liquor of both Peru and
Chile, Pisco is a colorless spirit distilled
from grape must, tracing its roots to the
16th century, when Spanish settlers made
their way to South America. Originally
produced in Peru, today there is quite
a debate as to the merits of Chilean
Pisco, with Pisco developed in Peru
generally deemed a more authentic,
superior product. Approximately
25,000 cases of Pisco are imported
into the U.S. today. Undoubtedly,
Pisco has a long way to climb. The
Pisco Sour, the most iconic of cocktails made with the spirit, featuring
egg white and bitters, will continue

to help push the category, along with today’s
imaginative bartenders who help boldly illuminate its versatility.

THE PLAYERS

Diego Loret de Mola, president of wine and
liquor super store BevMax, launched BarSol
Pisco in 2005 after closely watching the spirits market and recognizing the growing appreciation of Latin American culture in the
U.S. A native of Peru, it was important to
Loret de Mola that he create a Pisco made
in an artisanal manner, but one that was also
affordable so it would become accessible at
the bar. His BarSol Pisco is made with the
Quebranta grape, the most common grape

varietal grown in Peru for the production of Pisco. It is the least aromatic, and makes for a Pisco that is
dry and smooth.
“I wanted to share a little bit of
my Peruvian culture through Pisco
cocktails,” explains Loret de Mola.
“I was really convinced there was a
great opportunity for the Pisco Sour
The bar at Yerba Buena,
and the Pisco Punch here; America

is in love with all things Latin. More
bars are opening their selections and
including Pisco as part of their menu. And
bartenders are really letting their imagination fly with it.”
Available in 44 markets, BarSol’s
national distribution is quite extensive.
They have been lucky enough to partner
with national chain The Cheesecake Factory, which pairs its food with novelty
cocktails made with BarSol, extending the
brand’s visibility.
“It’s a small brand and it’s still a small
category,” says Loret de Mola. “As more
brands come together, providing awareness
and education of Pisco is the way for the
spirit to grow.”
Last year, Melanie Asher, a Harvard
business school alum originally from Peru,
brought her Macchu Pisco, which first

“It was very difficult gaining traction here,”
recalls Lizzie Asher, Melanie’s sister who
also serves as the company’s president and
brand ambassador. “In London there was
“as more brands come
more of a fascination for the esoteric and
together, providing

narrowly stay focused on just the Pisco Sour,

then bartenders won’t think about the
potential of Pisco,” Lizzie says.
Herbie Loebl’s family has been in
the Pisco business for quite some time
now, working in the U.S. and abroad
on generating buzz for the spirit since
2004. For the last two years, he and
his father have been focusing their
efforts on their own brand, Gran Sierpe, a Peru-made Pisco with an eyecatching package design. Currently,
Gran Sierpe is available in the South
Florida market, with plans for the Northeast and California. Loebl believes that this
Pisco has the potential to successfully cross
over all the segments of the trade and the
consumer. “This business has come about
after careful consideration of quality, necessary marketing efforts and a huge learning curve that we have experienced after
selling Pisco for five years in the U.S. I
feel very strongly that Pisco is the next big
white spirits category to be explored by the
U.S. consumer,” Loebl explains.
So far, the progress is siginificant. At
Beekman Liquors in NYC, they can barely
keep their bottles of Pisco on the shelf.
Owner David Frieser says they’ve been carrying Pisco for many years at the store, but
now customers are more excited by it as they
look for new cocktails. “People are experimenting; they’ve tried the Mojito, they’ve
tried the Caipirinha, and now they want to
try the Pisco Sour.

DISCOVERING PISCO

At Yerba Buena in New York City’s East Village, Artemio Vasquez is at the helm of the
bar. An alum of such lauded institutions as
PDT and Pegu Club, Vasquez clearly knows
how to make an inventive cocktail. Complementing a Latin-inspired menu of dishes
like short rip arepas and chipotle guacamole,
Vasquez makes a number of cocktails with
Pisco. A fan of Macchu Pisco, he makes
classics like Pisco Sours but also pushes Pisco to more creative limits with his “Boludo
‘Yerba Mate’,” yerba mate-infused Pisco with
grapefruit and lime cordials and fresh lemon
juice; Audrey Saunders’ classic pineappleinfused Pisco Punch; and a distinctive Pisco
Sour with purple corn. When Yerba Buena

Pisco goes really well in particular with
savory ingredients, so you’ll find him making Pisco the base of celery root cocktails

as more of a wine than a spirit because of
its subtle nuances,” he says. At PX, the
classic Pisco Sour is one of only a few classic cocktails guests will find on the menu,
and it has a loyal fan base. Thrasher says
he goes through about six or seven bottles
of Pisco a week. Does he think Pisco will
be the next big cult spirit? “The problem
is that some bartenders are so unfamiliar
with Pisco,” he says. “It’s really a matter
of playing with it.” ■

Remaining Vigilant

WheRe to leaRn moRe

By Daina Paulin

F

or most everyone spring is a time of celebration,
and for high-school and college students the coming
months are filled with a string of special occasions
including prom, spring break and graduation. In many
cases these festivities are accompanied by underage
drinking, often with fatal consequences.

In fact, more underage deaths occur during
the months of April, May and June than
in any other time of the year, according to
The Century Council. During this highrisk season it is important for purveyors of
beverage alcohol to be especially vigilant
in their sales and service. There are several
precautions you can take to protect your
business and promote public awareness of
underage drinking.
The most obvious preventative measure
is to be attentive as to who you are selling
and serving your products to. This means
not only closely inspecting IDs, but also
paying attention to those who are with your
customers or who may be waiting outside.
In many cases minors receive their alcohol from the people closest to them.
According to one study conducted by The
Century Council, 65% of underage drinkers receive alcohol from family and friends.
Although it may be difficult to know where
your products will end up, you can still remind your customers that underage drinking
is both dangerous and illegal through
the use of POS materials and your
own displays. Several sources for
in-store displays include the
Federal Trade Commission,

which has developed the “We Don’t Serve
Teens” campaign, and The Century Council, which provides “Cops in Shops” materials for retailers.
Beyond educating yourself and your
customers, your staff should also be aware of
the dangers of selling to minors. Providing
training for your entire staff is one of the best
insurance policies you can own. This may
mean simply speaking with your employees
about preventive measures or also providing
them with training programs.
One of the most popular and effective
educational courses offered is TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS). TIPS
certification classes teach everything from
spotting fake IDs and learning behavioral
cues to responding to intoxicated individuals. The training also provides a thorough
overview of the laws and regulations for your
city and state.
Certification can prove to be beneficial
for both the establishment and the employee. “What participants walk away with
is certification for the business showing that
the owners made an effort to prevent any incidents from happening, and it also protects the individual as well,” explains
Trevor Estelle, who works with Health
Communications Inc., the providers of
TIPS education.
Estelle also points to the value of
becoming involved in your community.
“Becoming a vocal advocate in your area
not only communicates that you are a responsible business in the community, it also
reinforces the importance of responsible
consumption and the dangers of underage
drinking,” an important message to send any
month of the year. n

alcoholic beverage on the market.“ For me,

Patrick Wilson always relished a fine
wine; more particularly an outstanding
champagne or sparkling wine. It wasn’t
until a few years ago, however, that he
decided to manufacture his own delicious
libation and embark on a new and exciting
career. After 12 years in the sales and
distribution industry, Patrick truly needed
to make a change.
A Solana Beach, California native
and now residing in the neighboring town
of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Patrick obtained
a BA in Business from University of San
Diego. Initially, Patrick’s intentions had
him heading toward law school; instead
he decided to take his chances at a sales
position in the nutrition industry serving
beverage, food and vitamin manufacturers.
In 2002, as Patrick attempted to relax
on another long, business flight back home
to San Diego, he requested a serving of
champagne. After being served a flute of
champagne, Patrick was struck with the
idea to create a single serving glass design
that would encourage others to drink
champagne and sparkling wine casually
like any other beer or cocktail.“ I wanted
to enjoy my favorite beverage directly from
the bottle – Why bother with the whole
flute thing,” said Patrick.
After several years of research and
development, Patrick left his sales job
in 2007 and began producing KARMA
– never loosing sight of his goal to

KARMA had to be stylish, sexy and have
a comfortable opening to drink from,” said
Patrick.
Patrick always preferred a glass of
champagne and wanted to show others
that a glass of bubbly can be enjoyed in any
situation, not only for special occasions.
Throughout the design phase of KARMA,
Patrick witnessed other sparkling wine
and champagne producers make attempts
at the same common vision. Although
he applauds their innovative attempts of
offering sparkling wine in a can, including
a straw with their 187ml or attaching a
funnel to the bottle closure, he feels they
never truly fulfilled the ready-to-drink
(RTD) concept. Therefore, Patrick put
his all into creating KARMA.
At 34, when he’s not busy pioneering
the luxury wine market or directing his
own real estate development company
Cardiff Estate Designs, Patrick can be
found playing golf, walking his dog Ruby,
trying new restaurants, and spending
time with his wife, Paige and their three

Coming Together in
Challenging Times
The seventh annual ABL convention reminds
retailers of the importance of collaboration and
communication in good times and in bad.
By Daina Paulin

T

his year the American Beverage
Licensees welcomed a record number of ABL members and industry
professionals to its seventh annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. The three-day
event, held in early March, was jam-packed
with seminars, panel discussions and a host
of social events, providing a forum for retailers to discuss common problems and collective solutions.
“This year’s convention proved to be a
great opportunity for retailers to exchange
information and share their perspective
with CEOs and high-level alcohol industry
executives,” said Susan Day Duffy, ABL’s director of operations and trade relations
Many of these industry executives and
industry leaders led a series of presentations
focusing on current challenges for retailers and the industry as a whole. Following
the convention’s theme, ‘Leveraging Your
Strengths in Today’s Economy,’ many speakers focused on how to move forward even
during challenging times.
Commenting on the current economic
climate, John McDonnell, chief operating officer/executive vice president for the
Patrón Spirits Company said, “Let’s face it.
With the economy the way it is, there seems
to be fewer opportunities these days. However, our industry is old enough to have survived many hard times before.”
Also speaking on the economy, Jeff
Becker, president of the Beer Institute, reinforced the necessity of a united front:
“It’s particularly important in today’s environment that the industry be unified. It’s
very important that we understand what is
going on with each of our respective [industry] organizations.”
Craig Wolf, president & CEO of Wine &
Spirits Wholesalers of America, highlighted

Bridging the Gap
By Daina Paulin

B

efore the NABCA’s 72nd annual conference,
Doug Fox reflects back on what he has learned
from his past year as chairman, what challenges
remain and what he hopes members will take away
from this year’s event.
With his opening speech at last year’s NABCA conference, incoming chairman Doug
Fox set the tone for a new spirit of collaboration for members of the Association. He
chose ‘Building Bridges’ to be the theme for
the year and called for members to reach out
to the entire alcohol beverage community by
forming new relationships.
“When I first came up with ‘Building
Bridges,’ my concept was that we would attempt to improve communication with all
the players involved with the spirits industry,
including members of government and public health- those are our partners. I wanted
to visit headquarters and speak with industry
members to build stronger relationships and
to understand their needs,” Fox explains.
These efforts have been well met. By the
end of his year as chairman, Fox and other
NABCA chair members will have visited 14
corporate headquarters. For Fox, visiting a
company’s center of operations is both educational and symbolic. “Since we ask members of the beverage alcohol industry to come
to our meetings, I think it’s appropriate that
NABCA go to their homes to get a better
understanding of their issues and concerns.”

Added Value
Of course these educational visits have not
been limited to board members. Fox prides
himself on making sure that a wide range
of members have the opportunity to learn
more about the products they sell. Recently a group of control state administrators,
warehouse managers and buyers traveled to
6 Hawaii Beverage guide may 2009

Kentucky to visit the Sazerac and Maker’s
Mark distilleries. Not only were the visitors
able to see how bourbon is produced, but also
how it is bottled and marketed. Fox explains
that these visits are priceless when increasing members’ knowledge of the products on
their shelves.

Gaining Perspective
Beyond building new relationships within
the beverage alcohol industry, the NABCA
has placed an emphasis on strengthening its
ties with public health groups, continuing
its efforts to promote social responsibility.
One successful example is the ongoing work
of the health advisory committee, a panel
comprised of individuals and organizations
who study issues related to alcohol abuse.
These discussions have drawn attention to
controversial policies and products in the
industry and have fostered dialogue about
current alcohol legislation.
Reinforcing these discussions are several
ongoing projects such as the Association’s
annotated bibliography of research and its
series of legislative updates. The bibliography,
created under past chairman Ed Schmidt,
is a collection of issues and subjects related
to alcohol. The legislative updates, which
are revised periodically, track each state’s
current alcohol legislation, allowing members to follow political developments in
their state and across the country. Information on the annotated bibliography and
the legislative updates can be found on the
association’s website, www.nabca.org.

NABCA’s Doug Fox

The 27th Annual Conference
This year’s annual conference, being held in
Phoenix on May 13th-17th, will also follow the
theme of ‘Building Bridges,’ welcoming guest
speakers from in and outside of the industry
while also promoting dialogue between members. “The idea is to provide a venue where
control state figures can interact with their
business partners with the expectation that
we can all learn from each other and bring
something positive back for our prospective
jurisdictions,” Fox explains.
In addition to offering seminars focusing on legislation, education and social responsibility, this year’s conference will also
welcome a group of keynote speakers from
outside the industry. Specialists from a wide
range of fields will include Washington Post
columnist George Will, who will speak about
today’s political environment; personal finance guru Jane Bryant Quinn, who will lead
a discussion on managing finances in today’s
economy; and baseball stars Johnny Bench
and Joe Morgan, who are leading a project to
bring baseball back into inner cities, “building bridges of their own,” adds Fox.
Of course the NABCA conference also
represents a changing of the guard. This year
the torch will be passed to Shauna Helfert
from Montana. What advice does Fox have
for his successor?
“Look to your predecessors. I have
learned a great deal from the chairmen that
came before me. I know Shauna will be successful and I hope she is able to build on the
Association’s past achievements.” n

The IrIsh Boom ConTInues

W

hile bourbon and Scotch get more
press, Irish whiskeys have quietly
become the fastest growing, barrelaged spirit in America. According to Adams
Liquor Handbook, sales of the classy import
continued their climb up the charts growing
at a blistering 18.4% in 2008, this compared
to ostensibly flat growth for Scotch (1.6%) and
Canadian (0.3%) experienced last year. So
what’s the attraction?
It may be no more complicated than Irish
whiskeys are exceptionally easy to drink.
They’re accessible, highly aromatic and loaded
with palate pleasing flavors. Equally tempting,
years of steadily increasing popularity hasn’t
significantly driven up their price making them
relative bargains. For a category long existing
with nary a pulse, these are heady days.
There was a time when Irish whiskey ruled
supreme. By the end of the nineteenth century,
there were over 160 active distilleries in the
country producing 400 brands of Irish whiskey.
It was exported to every port of call in Europe,
the British Empire and America, exceeding the
worldwide sales of all other types of whiskey
combined. It had become the world’s spirit of
choice.
Two historical events brought the Irish
whiskey industry to its knees. The first was the
1916 Irish War of Independence against Great
Britain. In retaliation, England level a trade
embargo with Ireland, which denied distillers
access to markets throughout the British
Empire. Then in 1919 came the American
Prohibition and overnight Irish whiskey’s
largest consumer base effectively vanished. The
cumulative effect on the Irish economy was
devastating.
During the same time, Scotch whisky
distillers were thriving. Unaffected by the
British embargo, exports of Scotch skyrocketed
and truckloads of whisky found their way
across the Canadian border and into American
speakeasies. Scotch soon became this country’s
whisky of choice, a distinction that it hasn’t yet
relinquished.
There are several telling differences
between Irish and Scotch whiskies. Unlike
Scotch, Irish whiskey is distilled from both
malted and unmalted barley. The malt used in
the distillation is dried in closed kilns, rather
than over peat fires as is the traditional practice
in Scotland. As a result most Irish whiskeys lack
the peaty smokiness of Scotch. Irish producers
also triple-distill their whiskey and prefer to
develop its character in the vat, rather than
post-distillation blending.
Ireland’s standards of quality are such
that there is no such thing as a mediocre Irish
8 Hawaii Beverage guide may 2009

whiskey. In a marketplace where demand for
super-premium spirits is soaring, Irish whiskeys
are hot commodities. The strategy is clear, give
the people what they want and order more bar
stools.
Here’s a brief look at the category’s franchise
players.
• Black Bush — Created in 1934 by the
master distiller at the Bushmills Distillery,
the inimitable whiskey is a blend comprised
principally of malted barley whiskeys tripledistilled in copper pot stills. Most are aged up to
nine years largely in Oloroso sherry oak casks.
Black Bush is a full-bodied beauty with a sherry
influenced nose and a rich, malty palate. Its
silky body makes Black Bush a highly accessible
whiskey, an ideal entrée to the category.
• Bushmills 16-Year Old Single
Malt — This highly revered single malt is a
blend of whiskies matured a minimum of 16
years in three different types of wood—exbourbon barrels, Port pipes and Oloroso sherry
casks. Each wood contributes a distinctive
character to the glorious finished product. It
has a voluminous bouquet and a tantalizing,
somewhat fruity palate. The finish is long and
flavorful with delicate Port notes.
• Connemara Single Malt — Produced
at the renowned Cooley Distillery in Dundalk,
this award-winning single malt is distilled in a
traditional pot still using malted barley dried
over a peat fire. The peat imbues Connemara
with an intriguing smoky edge and flavor. It’s
a glorious malt reminiscent of the whiskies of
Islay.
• Jameson 12-Year — John Jameson has
been distilling whiskey since 1780 and their
accumulated expertise is immediately evident
in this 12-year old gem. It’s a blend of malted
and unmalted barley whiskeys aged in exbourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry casks. The
sherry-finished whiskeys in the blend give it a
slightly sweet, fruity and nutty palate.
• Jameson 18-Year — A stunning
accomplishment that pays homage to the
Jameson Distillery’s centuries old preference for
aging whiskeys in Oloroso sherry casks. After
maturing a minimum of 18-years in the sherry
wood, the whiskey is finished for six-months
in American oak. It has a wafting, sherryinfluenced bouquet and a broad palate with
nutty, spicy notes. An exquisite whiskey of great
substance and style.
• Knappogue Castle 1995 Single Malt
— The current vintage of this celebrated
single malt is the most robust and flavorful to
date. The 12-year old, pot-distilled whiskey is
generously aromatic and loaded with citrusy,

malty and honeyed notes. The finish is
lingering and eminently satisfying. Knappogue
Castle is an exceptional buy at twice the price.
• Michael Collins Single Malt
— Produced at the Cooley Distillery, this
marvelous malt is distilled in small batches
from 100% peated barley malt and matured in
ex-bourbon barrels between 8 to 12 years. It has
a brilliant bouquet and a dry, appetizing palate
with succulent fruit notes. The malt finishes
long and silky smooth.
• Midleton Very Rare — The highly
esteemed Midleton Very Rare is a vintagedated blend comprised of pot-distilled whiskies
made from both malted and unmalted barley
and matured up to 25 years in American oak
barrels. Only a scant 50 casks are bottled each
year. Midleton VR has a luxurious pot-still
character with a silky texture and mesmerizing
array of flavors.
• Power — In a country known for their
abiding appreciation of whiskey, Power’s
remains the best-selling brand in Ireland. It’s an
elegant blend comprised of approximately 70%
pot still whiskies and no malt used in the blend.
Founded in 1791, Power’s was the first to market
their whiskey in bottles.
• Redbreast Pure Pot Still — This
prestigious whiskey is crafted in heavy copper
pot stills from malted barley and spring water
and then barrel aged for a minimum of 12-years.
The whiskey is complex, delightfully assertive
and smooth as satin. It has a bouquet laced with
malt and fruit aromas and a palate brimming
with the flavors of honey, spice and sherry.
• Tullamore Dew — Created in 1829,
Tullamore Dew is triple-distilled in pot stills
at the Midleton Distillery in Cork and aged
for a minimum of three years in American oak
barrels and ex-Sherry casks. It has a semi-sweet,
fruity bouquet, a light body with a dry, woody
palate with a caramel finish. Tullamore Dew is
a premium dram at a value price.
• Tyrconnell Single Malt — The brand
dates back to 1762 and is now distilled at the
Cooley Distillery, Tyrconnell is a flawless
whiskey with a full body, malty bouquet and a
slightly sweet flavor. It has a long, marvelously
dry finish. Tyrconnell Single Malt compares
quite favorably with the single malts of the
Speyside.

Mastering the irish Coffee

Lot No. 40 — Pot-distilled from small grains
and malted rye, and aged in re-charred
American oak barrels, Lot No. 40 is a big,
powerful whisky with an assertiveness that
heretofore has been unseen from Canadian
whiskies.
• Forty Creek Three Grain — A
captivating blend of malted rye, malted barley
and corn whiskies, each pot-distilled and aged
8-years in bourbon barrels and sherry casks.
The varietal grains contribute individually to
the whisky’s distinctive, complex character.

One of the best reasons to open a bottle of
whiskey is the Irish Coffee. As the story goes
on a particularly cold evening in 1952, the
chef at the Shannon airport restaurant laced
his coffee with a healthy dram of whiskey, a
spot of sugar and a layer of whipped cream.
The combination was pronounced utterly
delicious. The drink soon became a specialty

Store Wars... When NY Governor Paterson
unleashed a proposal to radically change the
beverage alcohol retail landscape by allowing wine
to be sold in grocery stores, he lit a fuse which will
keep burning even now that his plan has been
shelved. Liquor stores in New York have always
been very tightly restricted in what they can sell.
There is almost nothing there a person under
21 can buy. That makes enforcing and obeying
the minimum age law a lot easier. Kids generally
have no business being in a New York liquor store.
Wine and spirits have been the exclusive domain
of the liquor stores in New York. For some reason,
grocery stores could sell beer, but nothing stronger.
Governor Paterson realized that the “simple” step
of allowing grocery stores to sell wine would hugely
expand the number of wine outlets and almost
certainly give a nice boost to state revenues. But
he did not have even a bone in his plan to toss to
all the family owned liquor stores who would have
one of the two legs they stood on kicked out from
under them.
Battles lines were quickly drawn. This was a nice
opportunity for grocery stores – but life and death
for the liquor stores. As a general rule, this column
favors liberal and equal retail opportunities for all
forms of beverage alcohol. However, changing the
rules overnight in a way that seriously hurts people
who have done nothing wrong is not the way to
grow this industry. NY liquor stores fought hard
and appear to have won this round. The wine in
grocery stores plan is out of the Governor’s budget.
The battle created some bad feelings between
industry members which may last for some time to
come.
The outcome proves the value of strong
associations who represent industry members at all
levels and coordinate response to serious threats.
You can’t build an army overnight. Wherever you
are, learn from the New York example. Join and
support your local and national trade association!
Of course, reality always plays a role. While the
wine in grocery stores plan was blocked, NY is
planning on big increases in the excise tax on beer
(27%) and wine (58%).
Going Soft... Are soft drink sales an early indicator
of our economic future? You may be surprised to
learn that the volume of soft drinks sold in the U.S.
began dropping way back in 2005! According to
Beverage Digest, sales dropped slightly in 2005 and
2006, and then accelerated the trend by dropping
2.1 percent in 2007 and 3 percent in 2008. Price
increases and the strength of higher cost energy
drinks helped keep the industry green in terms of
sales dollars during the period.

Shot & a trim … Guess I use the wrong barber. It ID Faker… State officials have charged a University
seems that in Louisiana (and elsewhere?) barbers
and hair salons sometimes like to offer some
strong liquid refreshment to clients. Apparently,
authorities in Louisiana have been cracking down
on the practice of dispensing alcohol without
a license in establishments where minors are
frequently present. To the rescue comes Rep. Jerry
Gisclair, who has introduced legislation to allow
properly licensed cosmetologists to give one beer,
one generous shot of liquor (2 ounces) or two 5
ounce glasses of wine to customers who are of legal
age. We love amenities everywhere we go – but I
suspect that more places dispensing free drinks is
not on many lists of needed reforms in our society.
Let’s tackle the important stuff first.
axe the tax… English pubs are on the endangered
species list since double digit tax increases on
beer, wine and spirits last year. About 2,000 pubs
have gone out of business since then and those
remaining are fighting back. They’ve managed
to get about 1/3 of the Members of Parliament to
sign a Parliamentary Motion to ‘Save the Great
British Pub’ by making sure there are no new taxes
this year and maybe even rolling back last year’s
increase.
Cheer from beer… Jeff Becker, president of the
Beer Institute (BI), recently announced new beer
industry economic impact data at a joint Legislative
Conference in Washington, DC held with the
National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA).
According to Becker, America’s beer industry
generates $198 billion for the U.S. economy and
employs nearly 1.9 million people directly and
indirectly. The industry pays $62 billion in wages
and benefits to its employees. It would be great if
someone could develop similar numbers for the
wine and spirits segments of the industry so that
a true overall picture could be developed. I’ll bet
somebody already has those numbers. Who will
pull them together for the common good?
I’ve always believed that the public deserves a
clear understanding of the benefits of our system
of alcohol beverage regulation and taxation. If
Prohibition or anything like it ever returns, there
will be no survivors. The entire beverage alcohol
industry needs to pool at least some of their efforts
towards building understanding and support for
what has been achieved since Prohibition was
repealed. Sure, the brands and the categories
will always be fighting it out for their share of the
consumer dollar. But we need wise leaders who can
rise above the daily competition and make sure
the public confidence on which all we do depends,
remains strong.

of New Hampshire graduate student with operating
a sophisticated false identification operation out of
his off-campus residence, the Portsmouth Herald
reported recently.
Matthew Kramer, 22, of Durham, was
arrested on a warrant for a class B felony charge
of
manufacturing/sale/possession
of
false
identification, according to the state Liquor
Enforcement office. The charge is punishable by
prison time, said Major Todd Feyrer.
Feyrer said Kramer’s arrest followed a month-long
investigation by the State Liquor Commission’s
Bureau of Enforcement, “after a recent spike in the
number of false IDs confiscated in the Durham
area.”
Police agencies searched Kramer’s residence
on March 20 and seized eleven false N.H. driver’s
licenses, a desktop computer, a flash drive, a
scanner/printer, laminating machine, bar code
encoders and scanners, ID card stock, lamination
stock and other items related to manufacturing the
false IDs.
Kramer’s identification operation was “absolutely”
sophisticated, said Feyrer.
Is this Kosher?… A new kosher tequila is being
launched in time for Cinco de Mayo. Martin
Silver, president of New York-based Star Industries,
says Agave 99 will be on the market in time for the
holiday that celebrates Mexico’s defeat of French
forces on May 5, 1862. Silver says he wants to
satisfy the craze for high-end tequila with one that
observant Jews can drink.
Silver says a half million cases of the 99-proof
kosher tequila are being produced at a Mexican
plant using methods certified by a rabbi. It will
retail for $41.95 a bottle.
The product launch - with Mexican songs sung
in both Yiddish and Spanish - is set for May 5.
red Is Sexy?… Red wine increases the female
libido, according to a study carried out by the
Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Florence, Italy.
The study investigated 789 Italian women aged
between 18 and 50. Drinking red wine apparently
not only helps to release inhibitions, but also has a
direct effect on sexual activity. Women who drink
one to two glasses of wine a day were found to be
more sexually active than those who abstain. Dark
chocolate, which is rich in antioxidants, has a
similarly positive effect on the female libido. Just
thought you’d like to know. ■

DATEBOOK! - May 2009
A Calendar of Promotable Events for Your On- or Off-Premise Business.
CELEBRATE MAY!
May has been recognized as NATIONAL TAVERN MONTH for nearly 60 years.
It is a good time to remind everyone that taverns have been a staple of business,
socializing and leisure since the earliest years of the United States. Taverns today
share many of the same features that their colonial counterparts pioneered. They
remain favorite places to stop in for a meal and a drink, enjoy performing artists, catch
up on local news with friends and acquaintances, and perhaps even watch a ballgame.
All bev/al retailers can join in celebrating a host of well and not-so-well known
birthdays & occasions in May including: Bike Month, Mental Health Month, National
Barbecue Month, Hamburger Month, National Egg Month, Older Americans Month,
Better Sleep Month (check your mattress), Correct Posture Month, and:
