RELSKA Vodka I’d really, rather Relska!

About RELSKA Vodka Relska Vodka originated in Hartford, CT in the year 1721. It is produced by L. Relsky & CIE and made from grain. With 40% of ABV, this bottom-shelf vodka is the perfect mixer drink and has the average price of $6.75.

Marketing History Heublein, producer of Smirnoff Vodka, enjoyed a leading brand with a dominant share of its market for two decades. Smirnoff was then attacked on price by another brand, Wolfschmidt, produced by the Seagram Company LTD. Wolfschmidt was priced at $1 a bottle less than Smirnoff and claimed the same quality. Recognizing a real danger of customers switching to Wolfschmidt, Heublein needed a strategy to protect its market dominance. Heublein introduced a new brand, Relska and positioned it head-to-head as fighting brand against Wolfschmidt’s price and market segment.

Facebook & Instagram In many countries, vodka is national treasure, and so when we drink, it is never about just drinking but a moment of celebration. Nothing captures that sense of celebration - the shared moment amongst friends, families, colleagues - better than a toast. Like vodka, toasts have been bringing people together around birthdays, weddings or a simple gathering of friends for time immemorial. The “I’d Really, Rather RELSKA” campaign will venture from Facebook to announce the #RatherRELSKA introducing their new website and instagram, as well as teaming up with snapchat.
