Famous Grouse has launched its first direct marketing initiative to

build on the whisky brand’s success in Scotland.



A UK-wide mail-out will reach homes over the next two weeks and run for

three months. It is aimed at existing whisky drinkers and is intended to

give Highland Distillers a greater understanding of loyal Famous Grouse

customers.



Barraclough Hall Woolston Gray, the Abbott Mead Vickers subsidiary, was

appointed to the account last month.



Would-be customers will be sent a letter pointing out that Famous Grouse

is the most popular whisky in Scotland and inviting them to find out why

by using the enclosed pounds 1 discount voucher.



Simon Hall, the chief executive of Barraclough Hall, said: ’With 7 per

cent of the population responsible for more than 80 per cent of all

whisky consumption, direct marketing is perfectly placed to target

drinkers.’
