Here's a look at what was happening on this day in...

2014 - Comment - Spirits - Beam Suntory's Big White Spaces

It's been three months since Suntory Holdings completed its purchase of Beam Inc. What better time that the summer lull for Richard Woodard to take a long, hard look at just what the Japanese group got for its US$16bn.

2013 - Comment - Soft Drinks & Water - PepsiCo to enter Premi'Om' Water Market?

This month, Ray Rowlands of Drinksinfo Ltd follows up on the reports that PepsiCo is planning to launch a premium brand into the burgeoning US bottled water market next year, in an attempt to accelerate its diversification away from its struggling carbonates business.

2012 - Comment - Social Media: Facebook 'Advertising' Sparks Headaches for Drinks Firms

Social media remains a minefield for businesses - particularly drinks companies. While Twitter appears to be addressing the problems, by introducing a blanket age-gating system, Facebook is throwing up different issues.

2008 - Focus - Sports drinks and The Olympic Games

The 2008 Beijing Olympics are almost upon us as we finally realise that in addition to all the brand sponsorship activity, there will be some sport. Not surprisingly Coca-Cola is one of the leading participants in the brand marketing frenzy but Annette Farr found a surprising paucity of activity around sports drinks.

2007 - Comment - Wine – New Zeal for New Zealand

At first glance, a change of marketing slogan by New Zealand's generic wine body seems fairly unremarkable but a second look at the ambitious growth plans the new message is intended to underpin suggests the country is looking to make quite a splash. Chris Losh for one thinks New Zealand could well pull it off.

2006 - Bacardi dismisses political skulduggery claim

Bacardi has been accused of breaching electoral campaign regulations in the US.

2005 - Coca-Cola Co faces wave of legal action
