Featured Case Study

Wahaka Mezcal Improving Shelf Presence in the Premium Spirits Category

Founded in 2010, Wahaka Mezcal is an artisanal small batch mezcal produced by a 5th generation mezcalero family in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca. This premium product used a clear pressure sensitive label, but since the mezcal is also clear, the bottle did not have enough shelf presence in the competitive high end spirits category.
