“Ain’t no laws when you’re drinking Claws”

White-Claw

It’s been a fascinating few months watching the development of the White Claw phenomenon and its grip on the US.

In case you hadn’t heard of it, here’s a quick summary of what you’ve missed:

  • The Hard Seltzer brand, launched in 2016, has become such a cultural phenomenon that this summer has become known as the ‘White Claw Summer’.
  • White Claw was the fastest-growing beer and flavoured malted beverage in the US during July and outsold brand giant Budweiser, according to Nielsen.
  • White Claw was so popular that a nationwide product shortage was declared in September.
  • Police departments have had to issue a reminder that contrary to popular belief there are, in fact, laws when you’re drinking Claws.

Staggering.

But will this mind-blowing success travel across the Atlantic to the UK?

We’ve been finding out.

We sent 10 UK Thinkers a can of White Claw.

They then shared their opinions on:

  • the packaging,
  • taste,
  • future purchase intent,
  • when they would be likely to drink it,
  • what it would replace,
  • where they expect to see it positioned in-store and
  • their price expectations.

We analysed the raw video footage using our new lean solution approach, which offers our clients quicker, cheaper, but uncompromised insights.
