Impressive blind test results:
Our experts tested the effects of the dVine system on spirits in a blind tasting and the verdict was unanimous: the aeration and temperature enhance the aromatics of the spirits and lessen the sensation of alcohol.
dVine Spirits, a way to generate additional margin and customer satisfaction
During a pre-launch trial at Georges Blanc’s restaurant, the Ancienne Auberge, the dVine spirits offering proved a great success with consumers and teams. Sales grew from two to ten flacons a week, representing the equivalent of an additional €400 in sales a month.
Consumers were impressed by the experience and even mentioned it on customer review websites, which was excellent recognition for the establishments concerned and dVine’s Customer Success coaches.
dVine’s coaches spend time helping the teams at our partner establishments to build their spirits skills. Good product knowledge is key to creating successful pairings and encouraging customers to order.
With an innovative format, fun merchandising and a high-quality selection, the dVine spirits range, including gin, rum, whisky and cognac, is dusting off the image of spirits in restaurants.
