"Blended whisky is a difficult category, since consumers in the 1980s and 1990s grew enamored of vodka," says Gerry Ruvo, CEO of Skyy Spirits, importer of Cutty Sark and four single malts.
...
Ruvo, who says Cutty Sark will focus its efforts on major urban areas, believes consumers are starting to move towards robust flavors, and cocktails could help. Skyy put Cutty Sark into a 3,000 account cocktail program this summer, built around the movie Sex and the City; four cocktails featuring Skyy were named after female characters, while the "Mr. Big" was made with Cutty Sark.
"Blended Scotch needs to go on drink lists. I think the way they have got to go is promote them to consumers and create really interesting drinks in the on-premise to get them to sample these whiskies," Ruvo says.
...
Ruvo and others say that shows and events focusing on sampling and education is key to catching consumer interest, which he'll need to do now that Skyy's malts include full-flavored brands like Bowmore, Glenrothes and Auchentoshen, as well as Japanese single malt Yamazaki.
