i think they are using alcohol to attract profits. from men or women.
I know. I was just struck by the headline.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

or smart branding, recognizing a growing affluent segment of the population for growing liquor sales...
if you are female, (shifra?) let me ask, have you ever purchased something that has a female name because it had such a name? Jane? If anything you should be indignant that they feel they have to pander to you, that heaven forbid something with a male name may be less feminine. pathetic.
As a red blooded male, I can honestly say I have never even considered the name of the product as catering to my masculinity. I dont know what I would do.... I guess my childhood of Betty Crocker and Aunt Jemima has to be rethought.

that said, most booze panders heavy to men, so women perhaps get signals it just isnt for them and they should stick to cocktails, smirnoff ice and Moscato :).
I think deep down name/image/branding of manliness definitely affects me (thats why im a cheap bourbon (jack/jim beam, on yom tov knob creek/wild turkey 101) drinking, it makes me feel more manly and overcomes my general girliness :)).

idk, i'm all for smart marketing and witty ad campaigns. but to change an iconic name to attract women to me that is insulting (to the women if anything).
also as portrayed in movies and tv you will often see women drinking booze heavily, so as a ffb guy i cant speak confidently that in the secular world women do not imbibe as often/ much as their male counterparts. it could be that the caricature you are painting of the cocktails smirnoff etc applies to the frum women drinkers. (of which that is my perception as well).

Quote from: OP Article
A limited U.S. edition of the whisky will have a striding woman on the label
What else is this if not smart marketing? Nobody is changing any iconic names, look at the label, it's still being called "Johnnnie Walker Black Label" their only adding "The Jane Walker Edition" (which by definition says that it's a limited edition)

I concede, i did not look at the photo rather read the article which implied that the name would be different. apologies.
