Diageo launches J&B Urban Honey

27 March, 2014

Diageo has launched J&B Urban Honey, a new whisky-based drink, which the company says has been designed to open up the category to a new generation of men and women.

J&B Urban Honey is a 35% abv spirit drink made from J&B Scotch whisky infused with honey and is described as a characterful drink that creates a balanced and smooth liquid.

It will be launched in J&B’s heartland, Spain, in April.

Diageo says the taste has been created to be distinctively fresh when consumed neat, on the rocks or mixed in a cocktail.

J&B Urban Honey is clearly labelled as a spirit drink on its front label, while also differentiated from the parent brand with the use of a honeycomb pattern, a city skyline illustration and a prominent ‘bee’ illustration, ensuring compliance with Scotch Whisky Association guidelines.

Global J&B brand director Dougal McGeorge says: “Creation of J&B Urban Honey is true to the urban roots of the J&B brand and its reputation for re-invention in the whisky category. The rapid growth of flavoured Spirit Drinks made J&B a natural choice for us as we looked to drive innovation.”

Bar food's blurred lines

Once upon a time pubs and bars were somewhere you went with the sole purpose of getting pissed and there wasn’t a knife and fork in sight, just a packet of dry roasted nuts.
