Campari, the parent company of Wild Turkey, launched the Whiskey Barons Collection to bring back popular whiskey brands couldn't survive Prohibition. With its experience working with start ups and limited budgets, TCA helped the young brand test ideas to promote itself internally and externally.
The Whiskey Barons Collection is a series of small batch bourbons living within a company that usually goes big with its brands. While connoisseurs knew about the collection, few bartenders and distributors had enough awareness to drive demand. Likewise, internal sales teams needed their own education on how what sets these limited edition bourbons apart. The Whiskey Barons Collection contracted TCA to help teach the sales team how to educate their clients.
