Courvoisier Cognac teams up with Jermaine Dupri

(October 19, 2007) Beam Global Spirits & Wine, Inc., a global leader in premium spirits and wine, and Courvoisier Cognac, one of the world's leading cognac brands, announced the launch of "Find Greatness Within," the brand's first advertising and positioning campaign since 2005.

The newly launched Courvoisier ExclusifT and Courvoisier VSOP are the two featured marques of the campaign which premieres in various publications in October and November respectively.  In addition to the marques, the campaign features Jermaine "JD" Dupri, renowned producer and founder of So-So Def Records.

The genesis of "Find Greatness Within" is rooted in the time-honored traditions, craftsmanship, exclusive ingredients, and patient passion representing the layers of complexity, which make Courvoisier an iconic brand.  To bring this to life, Courvoisier has joined forces with music mogul Jermaine Dupri, who in parallel is successful because of his talent, passion, and tenacity, all of which have made him a successful and revered "self-made man." 

The synergy of Courvoisier and the "self-made man" challenges consumers to "Find Greatness Within," assuring that Courvoisier provides an unmatched experience. "As a respected leader in the cognac category, Courvoisier is excited to partner with Jermaine, a self-made man who is the ultimate trendsetter, cultural icon and savvy entrepreneur," said Chris Mahoney, senior brand director, Courvoisier Cognac.
