Two decades of brand mastery

Crafting the Essence of Wine and Spirits

For over twenty years, our seasoned wine & spirits group (formerly "Benson Marketing") has not only pioneered but also masterfully led branding campaigns specifically for the wine and spirits sector. Our expertise, while diverse, has a special resonance with this industry.

While we've cultivated growth in sectors like telecom, medical, and finance, our true passion lies in the world of wine and spirits. We immerse ourselves in the culture and lifestyle that surrounds these brands. Whether it's understanding the nuances of wine tasting, the craft of distilling spirits, or the elegance of high-end liquor branding, we live and breathe the essence of your brand every day.

Our approach is methodical yet inspired, beginning with a comprehensive brand assessment & discovery phase. We deploy several proprietary branding tools and exercises, guiding our clients through a transformative journey. The culmination of this process is the launch of key deliverables, which often include a new name, logo (including primary and sub-brand variations), brand voice, brand standard guidelines, website, digital assets, and other pivotal brand elements.

But our involvement doesn't end at the launch. We offer an extensive array of marketing services that continue to nurture and grow your brand. This includes SEO, paid search and social media campaigns, blog writing, digital marketing, and much more. Our commitment is to provide the services you need with the attention your brand deserves.

Awards have recognized our creative work, yet our true measure of success is not just when clients express their satisfaction with our work. Our real celebration begins when the market reacts, when your brand captivates the audience, and when you gain significant market share in the competitive world of wine and spirits.

Great brands take a lot of work.
Luckily, we're here to help.

Many businesses and people aren't familiar with what a brand really is — a logo? A set of standards? — well, all of it and more. When you're considering a rebrand, lots can go into it. Great brands know that to be effective, especially during a rebrand, they must clearly and creatively communicate the brand at every touchpoint, in a unique and meaningful way, and in their authentic brand voice.

That means lots of documents, thought leadership, and energy goes into making (and remaking) a brand. Call us, we'll walk you through what's entailed, timelines, budgets, and more.

It feels like we’ve created a bigger team, yet the same team.

 I've worked with agencies throughout my career, and the best ones are when you feel like you're working with a team — I feel that with The Brand Leader. The spirit is the same. It's a sporting spirit, and it feels like they’re trying to be inside what we're trying to do. And you must be in it to do something cool and creative."
