The Client: Buffalo Rock Company, a regional soft drink bottler

The Challenge: Their signature Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale—an incredibly spicy and truly delicious golden ginger ale—had a cult following, but it had yet to penetrate the all-important bar-and-restaurant market.

The Solution: "A Taste of Southern Spice" was delivered as part of a sales kit to local bar and restaurant owners during Birmingham Restaurant Week. The text hit on all of the attractive points: its long local history; its spicy and seemingly healthful appeal to target drinkers; its nationwide following; and, most importantly, its value and great versatility. Following the launch of the Buffalo Rocktails campaign, Buffalo Rock managed to turn three bars in a single week—a big deal in the bottling world.

There's actually a whole campaign
