Black Tower sales soar

Black Tower Rosé is the no.10 off trade rosé brand and is growing at massive +35% versus the overall UK rosé market at only +4%.
Comments Nik Schritz, managing director of Reh Kendermann: “Black Tower continues to demonstrate its value as a dynamic, must stock brand with high, guaranteed rate of sale. This promotion has huge appeal to Black Tower’s target audience of modern, design aware and brand conscious new drinkers, men and women 25-35+ years as well as our increasing number of brand loyalists. A new car is one of our consumers’ most wanted items and a new MINI Cooper – with on the road costs included – presents a sensational prize and the prospect of a dream come true. This promotion will help to forge brand sales even further forward and provide retailers with powerful sales support throughout the festive season and through to next spring.”
Since 1992 UK sales of Black Tower have grown a massive 250% and in 2008, sales exceeded one million cases worldwide.
