Apollo Peak, Inc.

 

Another fun one today that seems right up my alley. I love dogs. I love cocktails. So how about dog wines? OK, cat wines too.

Apollo Peak is an all-natural pet wine made in Colorado. No, it’s not really alcoholic, but it blends a lot of sophisticated ingredients your pets might like: vegetables, fruit, cat butt…

It seems like a cool product. The reviews were mixed, though. I guess it’s an acquired taste—much like real wine—but the pets who like it seem to really like it. Again, much like real wine…

I went back and forth between animals and gender—all things that could be sorted out based on user demographics and targeting, but I’m not going that deep today. Instead, I’m going to focus on fun.

Overall: Decent but not great. I had fun writing this, but similar to other recent posts, I struggled finding the balance between humor and actual messaging. It’s not as great as I wanted it to be. If it was just dogs & beer, maybe I would have had better luck.

Lessons: Too many options made this harder. There are different blends, champagnes, reds, whites, bottles for dogs, bottles for cats. I lost focus. After completing the lines, I found a similar product with a more off-kilter style. I might give this another go with them.

  • I wanted to have fun with this, but I held back because it’s not really wine
  • I expected the reviews to offer a lot more, but they were limited
  • Don’t give your pets real alcohol, folks. You know this.

Time: 1 straight session of 1:30. Longer than usual.
