Johnnie Walker is recognized universally as a premium Scotch Whiskey.  Their iconic logo of a poised gentleman confidently striding along successfully depicts the brand’s message, “Keep Walking”.

Keep walking is exactly  what this blended Scotch Whiskey label plans to do as it evolves its brand in these changing times.

Behind every strong and successful man is a strong and successful Woman

…and Johnnie Walker has recognized that. In recognition of women who lead the way, Johnnie Walker unveiled Jane Walker, the first-ever female iteration of the brand’s original logo.

The Jane Walker Edition launch this month– just in time for Women’s History Month.

The bottle is retailed at $35 and for every Jane Walker Edition bottle produced, Johnnie Walker will donate $1 to organizations supporting women’s progress, up to $250,000.

 

Now in my opinion whiskey has always been a preferred choice for men.  I’ve recently noticed that women have taken a liking to whiskey.  Resulting in Whiskey manufacturers developing flavored whiskeys in an attempt to expand their reach to the women and younger demographic.  This limited edition can potentially spark the interest of the Wonder Women in the Whiskey arena.  I myself am a Bourbon girl (The peet and smokiness in Scotch Whiskey is too advanced for my pallet)  However, this initiative is too powerful for me not to support.  I plan on purchasing my limited edition this week.

Please share your thoughts on the Jane Walker Edition!

  • Do you think this is a step in the right direction for Johnnie Walker?
  • Can this be a beginning of a new product?
  • What can Johnnie Walker/ Diagio do in regards of product development to expand their reach to women consumers?

Shea Moisture Campaign

Taking advantage of the trend, No Shave November, Shea moisture released their #DefineYourbeard Campaign November 1st.

For the past few years now, it’s become part of the millennial culture for men to spend special attention to their facial hair.  Much so that there has been a tremendous surge in products and services that cater to the this bearded community.

It only makes sense that Shea Moisture (Predominantly known for hair and skin care products) expanded their product line to cater to men.

Take a look at the new commercial that is quite frankly, a “thirst trap” for all females who appreciate a man with a beard:

 

Shea Moisture expanded their product line to cater to the needs of men about a year ago but the beard line is fairly new to the market.
