    Re: Christmas packaging

    Ken--don't waste your company's time and money. The whole idea behind a holiday package is twofold: 1. to win over new customers and 2. to reward your brand-loyal faithful.

    Let's look at these one at a time:

    1. You already have a demand greater than supply (at least at this point). You aren't looking to win people over whom you can't supply.

    2. Your brand-loyal (people like yours-truly) don't need some cheap coaster to buy your product.
    Here! Here!
    Ken, keep up the great work. When I can get hold of a product from BT, it is always first class
    If I want a drink coaster or glass, I simply order it from the web site.

    Re: Christmas packaging

    Beg to disagree boys. Anytime I can get a bottle of Bourbon with 2 glasses, a string bikini, or anything else for the price of the bottle alone, I'll buy it. I think it has something to do with being frugal.

    Yep, I've gotta admit, if it has a string bikini in the box it'd suck me in too...

    Re: Christmas packaging

    I dunno, never had any problem in aquiring a string bikini if I wanted one, my problem has always been getting the filler. Now if the package came with the filler....

    Re: Christmas packaging

    It comes with the whiskey, and any filler that won't put on the bikini in exchange for some whiskey....

    Getting the filler into the string bikini is only the start!

    PS - Fans of string bikinis may enjoy the Australian Wicked Weasel Bikinis site, and especially the biweekly competition. (Might be best not to browse this at work, although it is a legitimate site.)

    Re: Christmas packaging

    In Ohio, after christmas,the liquor reps come in , take the gifts out of the sets and throw the packages away. usually they place the alcohol on the shelves and let the store owner keep the gifts to do as they please. Some sell them and some give them away to valued customers. Same goes with those 50ml minis attached to the necks of larger bottles. many stores keep them and give away to select customers.

    Re: Christmas packaging

    I was looking on the net and found this mail order Jim Beam Black with a flask. You can't see the picture of the flask too well in the picture though

    Re: Christmas packaging

    I just picked one up for 18.95. It is a combination cigar tube and flask. It holds one cigar and the other side, which looks like a cigar tube, is actually a very small flask. Didn't need it but got it free with the whiskey.
