  • 3. 1. Consumer Analysis Demographic Profile
    • India’s GDP per-capita was < $1500 p.a. in 1996…($3300 in 2005, $4182 in 2006).
      • Approximately 5 mn. upper-upper class, many of then “nouveau riche” with per capita of > $100,000 p.a.
      • Adopting the life styles of the old money group is an aspiration for the nouveau riche.
    • A growing middle class - 200MM ($4000 p.a. in 1996), but in 2006 about 300MM with over $6000 p.a.
    • Adoption of Western lifestyles is an established trend among the middle and upper-middle classes, particularly in big cities such as Mumbai and Delhi.
  • 4. Demographic Profile (cont..)
    • Automobile ownership in 1996: confined to less than 5% of the population (the upper-upper class).
      • Actual ownership may be less than 2%.
      • An automobile is a luxury product.
    • Changing trends…$2500 car

      • Nano_IHT
      • Tata_Jaguar
    • Membership in 1) gymkhana clubs 2) racing associations etc.
      • prestigious institutions which exist from the colonial era.
      • Membership connotes “old money,” westernization and social elitism.
      • part of the social life of the establishment and is aspirational for the nouveau riche
  • 5. Consumer Behavior & Segmentation Cultural Dimensions of Serving Scotch
    • Two Segments
    • A small group of “old money” and establishment types, with Western lifestyles and with Scotch as the preferred drink.
      • Why scotch?...a carry-over from British colonial days.
    • Scotch is therefore a status symbol and an aspirational product for the nouveau riche.
      • This group serves and consumes Scotch in a conspicuous, public manner to make a statement:
        • you have arrived, you have class
        • you can afford it
  • 6. Social Constraints
    • Despite the allure of Scotch, Indian society as a whole is still quite conservative and there are many social and religious barriers to consuming alcohol. Consequently:
      • drinking alcohol has a “forbidden pleasure” element to it for many middle-class families.
      • Barriers rapidly dissolving during the past decade.
  • 7. Marketing Environment Availability of Scotch
    • At the time of this case, import of Scotch was tightly regulated.
      • Permit based system.
      • Primary recipients were government organizations, five star hotels, and exclusive clubs (e.g., gymkhana clubs).
    • This promoted an active market for “bootleg” Scotch which was readily available, but whose quality was highly variable.
  • 8. Legal Constraints on Marketing
    • Mass media advertising of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by law.
    • Distillers have devised many ingenious ways to circumvent this law:
      • setting up companies or using distributors to sell “proxy” products (decanters, salt and pepper shakers) which mimic the brand name and other brand properties of a particular brand e.g., Diplomat Mens Accessories, McDowells Club Soda.
      • Event marketing e.g., the No. 1 McDowell’s Derby,

  • 9. Premium Whisky Market in India
    • Locally manufactured Premium Indian Whisky (PIW) is an alternative to Scotch. It is a blend of 5% -10% imported Scotch and good quality ethyl alcohol.
    • Appropriate blending, flavoring and color are used to give it the appearance, taste and flavor of Scotch whisky
    • Sales are as follows:
      • Scotch Whisky (permits + bootleg) - 200,000 cases per year
      • Premium Indian Whisky - 200,000 cases per year.
  • 10. Interaction between PIW and Scotch
    • None of the Premium Whiskies are able to make a dent in the Scotch market due to
      • Lack of consistent blend quality
      • The aura and the image of Scotch
    • Thus PIW cannot satisfy the aspirational needs which the serving and consumption of Scotch fulfills.
  • 11. The New Product
    • A premium whisky containing > 15% Scotch blended with high proof ethyl alcohol and flavoring and color to approximate the taste and flavor of an imported Scotch.
    • Manufacturing Cost (Including packaging and overheads): Rs. 25/- per bottle as opposed to Rs. 15/- for a Premium Indian whisky.
    • Proposed name: McDowell’s Vintage Premium Malt Whisky
