The graphics and flavor iconography appeals to 24-39 year-old drinkers who are looking for something new and different. The bold colors and images can be seen through the translucent glass bottle and clear contents. The design gives the bottle a sophisticated look and a feeling of depth and movement designers say. “Our goal was to have a new and unique design that would convey our ongoing commitment to superior taste and quality” says Nicolast Guillant brand manager for Mount Gay Rum. According to a survey conducted by Harrigan-Bodick three out of five flavored rum drinkers said they would buy the new rum flavors based on package alone. More than three out of four consumers rated the Mount Gay Mango Rum packaging as premium stylish and up-to-date and refreshing. Of those polled 62% said the new image is exciting and sexy. —ALR
