We are living in uncertain times, but one thing you should be certain of is that you can continue to build and maintain quality business relationships even in this era of social distancing. As you look for ways to engage your prospects and customers, let Raise Your Spirits be your partner in reshaping your business development plan by delivering engaging sensory engagement platforms in the midst of the new normal.
HOW IT WORKS
We collaborate with you to select the spirits category you would like to present, then we source and purchase recommended expressions. Any distilled spirit is fair game (We can source expressions ranging from $40-$3,000)
We coordinate delivery of each expression to each experience participant at their homes or other designated location (We recommend allocating at least 10 days for delivery)
An RYS host conducts the experience via an agreed upon videoconferencing platform (standard $700 experience fee)
After the experience we provide you with a follow up email with the tasting notes to share with your guests
WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE?
Guests are welcomed to the virtual platform and guided through the tasting of up to three spirits expressions. RYS looks to source lesser known and/or rare fine spirits. The dialogue will introduce participants to the origins and elements of every expression using ou proprietary “Get HIP” approach (H-History; I- Ingredients; P-Process).
Everyone is able to interact and ask questions. The typical experience lasts 1-1 ½ hours. Best of all, your guests get to keep their bottles as gifts from you. (Note: Responsibl drinking is a core part of our philosophy. Even though guests are at home, we will require small pours a we walk through the experience.) Last, but certainly not least, we can shape the tasting conten to align with certain themes specific to your company’s value proposition, or we can conduct purely spirits-focused experience.
How much will it cost? That depends upon the number of guests you invite and the type/price of spirits. We recommend each participant receive three expressions, but it’ completely up to you.
