As an additional incentive to buy, consumers spending more than TWD 3,000 on Armagnac receive a useful and elegant Chabot logoed travel bag.
“We run HPP’s at the Everrich Taipei Downtown Neihu Store quite regularly. and find tastings a very effective way of promoting the brand,” says Chabot Armagnac President and Owner Kathleen Gentzbourger.
“The clientele here are mainly Chinese and mixture of Taiwanese and people from other Asian countries. And it is a wonderful opportunity to introduce them to the romance and passion of Armagnac. There is no better way to bring Armagnac to life than by sampling. Along with enjoying the rich and varied flavours that make up our collection. It is always a very effective way to boost sales. And, we hope, raise awareness of our brand to new consumers.”
