Growing a brand that is already the market leader is difficult. Successfully repositioning that brand is even more difficult. Trying to reposition a whole category is next to impossible. But it can be done. Baileys Original Irish Cream was the biggest brand in the liqueur category. We decided to reposition it, to compete with beers, wines and spirits. In other words, to move from the back of the liquor cabinet, and be front and centre at trendy, social gatherings. The business results surpassed all objectives, in market and in brand health research. Baileys continues to build share, and Canada is outperforming many key global markets. In fact, the campaign is being exported to a dozen countries, including the United States, and Ireland—Baileys’ ancestral home.
