Coca-Cola Launches That Special Seagram’s Sparkle Across The U.S.
Full Line of Ginger Ale and Mixers to Have Expanded Availability and Marketing Support
ATLANTA -- For people in the U.S. who’ve always wanted ginger ale and mixer choices from Coca-Cola, the wait is over. Coca-Cola is expanding availability for the full line of Seagram’s Ginger Ale and mixers across the country. So whether you’re kicking back for a moment of relaxation or enjoying a gathering with friends, refreshing Seagram’s brands can be there.
Coca-Cola acquired rights to the Seagram’s business in 2002, but distribution for Seagram’s brands has been limited within the Coca-Cola system. Now, Coca-Cola Refreshments and other bottlers are combining the strength of the Seagram’s brand with the extensive Coca-Cola distribution system to significantly increase availability of Seagram’s G inger Ale, Club Soda, Seltzer and Tonic Water in retail outlets across the U.S .
“While ginger ale and mixers are favorite beverage choices for many adults, they weren’t fully available offerings in the Coca-Cola portfolio of beverages,” said Caren Pasquale Seckler, Vice President, Sparkling Flavor Brands, Coca-Cola North America. “By making the Seagram’s brand more readily available, we can ensure when people reach for ginger ale or mixers for both every day enjoyment and for social celebrations, they choose Seagram’s.”
Seagram’s has a positive brand image with consumers and has enjoyed stable growth in recent years. In the U.S., the overall ginger ale and mixer category is large and growing.
“We see great opportunity for Seagram’s,” continued Pasquale Seckler. “With increased distribution, new, expanded marketing and the support of the entire Coca-Cola System, we’ll be able to put Seagram’s Ginger Ale and mixers within easy reach of people everywhere.”
Marketing for Seagram’s will roll out in several phases, beginning this month with new radio and out-of-home advertisements for Seagram’s Ginger Ale. Targeted to adults, the new brand messaging conveys the comfortable sophistication that Seagram’s can bring to the everyday. The “It’s Good to Be You” campaign highlights the clean taste and natural ginger flavor of Seagram’s Ginger Ale as a great option for adults seeking a non-caffeinated way to unwind and wash away the hassles of the day. The campaign was created by Ames Scullin O’Haire (AS0) of Atlanta. Additional marketing programs and enhancements will launch throughout the year.
