Beam Suntory Inc. Key Developments

Beam Suntory Inc to Launch Jim Beam Citrus Highball RTD Beverage

Beam Suntory Inc. has announced that it will introduce the new Jim Beam Citrus Highball ready to drink, or RTD, beverage. By tapping into the global consumer trend for refreshment, Coca-Cola Amatil and brand partner Beam Suntory are backing the new Citrus Highball to unlock long-term growth in the RTD market by giving existing bourbon drinkers a refreshing alternative to keep them in the category longer, and appealing to new drinkers of both genders to extend the bourbon occasion. Available nationwide from Coca-Cola Amatil from August 8, the Citrus Highball blends the mild, natural sweetness of Jim Beam bourbon with the sharp, crisp flavours of three specifically selected varieties of grapefruit to create a refreshing alternative to beer or cider.

Coca-Cola Amatil and Beam Suntory Release Jim Beam Double Oak in Australia

Coca-Cola Amatil and Beam Suntory have announced the release of the Jim Beam Double Oak in the Australian market as a permanent addition to the Jim Beam family. With this new premium expression, the bourbon has crafted a new take on Kentucky Straight Bourbon by maturing its signature whiskey in not one, but in two American oak barrels. Distributed in Australia exclusively by Coca-Cola Amatil, the first bottles of Double Oak will hit shelves from July 12 (ABV 43%, RRP $59.99). The launch will be supported in on and off premise by a package of point of sale and visibility items, in store sampling campaigns, incentive programs and key retailer catalogue support. In line with the introduction of the new Jim Beam packaging rolling out across the entire Jim Beam range globally in 2016, Jim Beam Double Oak is presented in a distinctive new bottle. With its unique contours, glass embossing and engraving, as well as textured labelling and foiling, the Jim Beam Double Oak bottle is representative of the outstanding quality of the liquid inside. In addition, it will be presented in an Australian exclusive Jim Beam Double Oak gift box to fully highlight the product's premium quality. This expertly-crafted expression is first matured in new charred American white oak barrels as with all Kentucky Straight Bourbons from Jim Beam before being transferred into a second charred oak barrel for a further period of ageing. The twice-barrelled production process allows the product to have greater contact with the wood, drawing out exceptional and perfectly balanced depths. The result is a whiskey intense in flavour yet smooth in taste, which can be enjoyed on the rocks or in a Double Oak Fashioned. Drinkers will discover aromas of vanilla and hints of toasted wood that lead into deep char and oak flavours with rich caramel and toffee notes. The finish is notably balanced with a distinct spiced oakiness lingering on the palate.
