“Adult Beverage Solutions had been a great choice for our sampling program needs. They provide a professional look to their program that is inviting and engaging to our target drinkers while also having an extremely professional and sales minded staff. They were very flexible to tailor a program to meet our needs and expectations in regards to education and training. Our retailers appreciate the thorough nature of the samplers and the program in general. From the first sample to the final recap, the ABS Team covers all our needs. The Adult Beverage Team has been a fantastic partner and has helped expand our sampling program in 2015”.

I wanted to take a minute to thank the all the wonderful folks who make up adult beverage solutions. They are so easy to work with. Booking my own tastings has never been easier, and literally takes 1 minute of my time. I never have to worry if they are going to be prepared, on time, or if they have taken the time to study the brands to be tasted. I always get a professional, knowledgeable, and sales oriented professional on site. I have used their services 100’s of times!! Even the most discriminating buyers are happy with the results, which are always greater than industry trends.
Thanks for making this so easy,

ABS has successfully staffed all events that I have needed them for. They are staffed with knowledgeable and outgoing reps who are always asking for more info on my products so they can answer all questions. Bar none the best sampling company I have worked with.

We have been using Adult Beverage Solutions for tastings on our brands for just over a year now and have been very happy with their performance on our brands. I deal with most of the accounts that we have been doing tastings in and the feedback from the retailers has been very good. The ABS tasting people actively engage the consumer at the tasting events to get them to try our brands. ABS has also done a nice job of training their people on our brands making sure that they have product knowledge and key selling points on the brands that they are tasting out.
In addition I receive detailed tasting reports from ABS that shows performance at the tastings. Number of people sampled, comments good and bad concerning the product, number of bottles sold, etc. This is very important to me as I have to justify to my company that we are spending our money efficiently.
Tasting people need to be a salesperson for the brand they are tasting out. Engaging / persuading the consumer to come to the table, talking to the consumer about the brand and it’s key selling points, and tasting the consumer out on the brand. These are the 3 most important things for a tasting person to do. ABS tasting people do a great job a executing these 3 key elements at the tastings.
