It’s not just the colas where summers, this year is going to see action, the big boys of alcohol too are gearing up for a showdown. Seagrams is going on an overdrive to take on the number one brand McDowells and for this it has chosen two of its brands-- Imperial Blue and Royal Stag.

Royal stag, which is an established brand from Seagrams, currently enjoys a 70% market share in the eastern part of the country.

The company now plans to focus on its other brand, Imperial Blue. After the successful launch of Imperial Blue in the south, mainly in Andhra Pradesh, it was launched in the East in the markets- West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh & Orissa, in the month of march. Now the company plans to take the brand national. Imperial Blue was also launched in Goa, Pondichery (in west) and Delhi & U.P. in northern phases.

To achieve the objective the company is working on a well crafted strategy. Imperial Blue is launching a new campaign in mid-April, which will utilize Television heavily.
