Bootz has created a new segment for itself as the pricing scale for Rum in India tends to either fall on the extreme high or the extreme low end. Considering Bootz Rum is that of a blended variety with a higher price in comparison to the competition we went the extra mile when it came to its packaging and deliverance, to give the consumers their money’s worth.
The challenge was to craft an exclusive & premium Rum identity and packaging design, apt in reflection of the Jamaican heritage, yet differentiated. We created one that justified the price of Bootz Rum which is slightly higher in the economy rum segment in the Indian market.
The brand has garnered 3% of the total Rum sales in its key markets in less than one month of launch.
