Rabobank’s global beverage team offers insights, analysis, and a bit of entertainment for your morning commute. Liquid Assets will help you tackle the latest trends, introduce you to industry leaders, and prepare you for what’s next in the beverage world.
Are Brands Built in the On-premise?
Steve Chasen, VP of Trade Marketing at Campari America, helped execute one of the most successful on-premise brand-building campaigns in history: that of the Aperol spritz. Linden Pride, Co-Founder & President of Dante NYC, is the proprietor of Caffe Dante, which was named the "World’s Best Bar" in 2019 and played a major role in popularizing the eminently Instagrammable fluorescent-orange cocktail. Together, they help us answer an important question: In the age of social media, e-commerce, and celebrity brands, how do you build a brand in the on-premise?
Occasion-Based Marketing, featuring Pinterest
Pinterest is a powerful platform for occasion-based marketing. Kym Lewis, their Partnership Manager for beverages, and Tina Pukonen, their Global Head of Vertical Strategy & Marketing, share their best practices for building an occasion-based marketing strategy, on Pinterest and beyond.
Portfolio Rebuilds: Is the Cash Always Greener on the Other Side?
We started our conversation expecting to talk about the news, but so much of the news has been dominated by major beverage companies shaking up their portfolio. Whether it was Molson Coors shutting down 11 brands, Coca-Cola cutting its portfolio in half, PepsiCo selling its juice brands for USD 3bn or Boston Beer partnering with PepsiCo and Beam Suntory, we try to figure out how each of these decisions fit into a larger strategy and what they may mean for the future of the beverage industry.
DISCUS and the Drive for New Spirits Regulations
Chris Swonger, CEO of Distilled Spirits Council of the United States and Responsibility.org, and David Ozgo, their Chief Economist, talk about regulations, tariffs, and the overall well-being of the US spirits industry.
The Inflation Sensation That’s Sweeping the Nation
They warned us about the return of inflation during their last appearance on Liquid Assets. Now, six months later, we welcome back the Rabobank economic duo, Jane Foley and Christian Lawrence to discuss this pesky inflation situation and dive deep into how the beverage industry is dealing with upstream price spikes and shortages.
Behind the Scenes: The Best and Worst of Liquid Assets
We have just completed three years of producing Liquid Assets, and it is high time for some joyful navel-gazing. In this episode, we look back at three years of the show and discuss what we got right and what we got wrong, and we send some love to the industry leaders who inform and inspire us and fill us with jealous rage.
Incredibly insights from fun but knowledgeable experts
I've found this show to be the only one to truly provide an in-depth look at the drinks industry from juice to wine and all the mergers and sell-offs in between.
Whit, sarcasm and intellect
Great pod with hosts that have great banter and always offer the best insights.
A great podcast that succeeds in covering the wide range of businesses that makes up the beverage industry. Moreover, they do so with impressive depth and insight. I always learn something new with each episode. I just wish they were a little nicer to Bourcard.
