As the Rare Whisky landscape changes and consumer (drinker, collector, investor) habits and the purchase decision making process evolves, it is imperative that brand owners understand where, when and how to focus their valuable and increasingly limited “liquid gold” resources.
Rare Whisky marketing needs a rifle shot not shotgun approach and brand owners must be sensitive to the triggers that appeal to this incredibly valuable segment. The dynamic growth evidenced by the secondary market (auctions) cannot and should not be ignored by brand owners.
Today’s consumers spend their time in a variety of social networks or in niche online communities with likeminded people - it is to these people they look to when seeking information.
