Responsible Drinking: The Champions Way
Champions are always in control
Whether you regard it as a set of beliefs or a way of life, we at Bacardi Limited are certain of one thing. By following The Champion’s Way, you’ll discover a responsible and rewarding way to enjoy your drinks if you choose to drink.
So why have we created it? Well, most people are likely to have seen someone who has had too much to drink – they often end up regretting it. The Champion’s Way exists because we care about our consumers and want them to enjoy our brands responsibly.
The Champion’s Way features a set of carefully chosen ideals. Why not put them into practice on your next night out?
Bacardi Limited and responsible drinking
At Bacardi Limited we have a long heritage of promoting the safe consumption of our brands, and we’re committed to educating people about responsible drinking through our Champions Drink Responsibly campaign.
Bacardi Limited is committed to the responsible and safe consumption of our brands by legal drinking age (LDA) consumers. We are extremely proud of our portfolio and are committed to long-term brand building in a socially responsible manner. We will never market our brands to consumers under the LDA. We also discourage abusive consumption of our brands and urge consumers who choose to drink to do so responsibly.
Our Champions Drink Responsibly campaign is part of that commitment and our messages will be seen across the world. To help spread the message we have a true champion as our ambassador; 10-Times Grand Slam Winner, Rafael Nadal. He is passionate about spending quality time with his friends and believes drinking responsibly allows everyone to enjoy themselves, making time spent with friends even more memorable.
European Forum for Responsible Drinking
THE EUROPEAN FORUM FOR RESPONSIBLE DRINKING
The European Forum for Responsible Drinking (EFRD) is an alliance of Europe’s leading spirits companies driving the industry’s commitment to promote responsible drinking in the EU and encouraging industry to adopt responsible self-regulatory standards for commercial communications.
EFRD member companies include:
• Beam Global Spirits & Wine
• Pernod Ricard
EFRD and its member companies believe that:
• There is a cultural complexity to alcohol consumption across Europe.
• Patterns of drinking, volume of consumption and alcohol-related harm vary by region and Member State. Therefore no single approach to alcohol policy is likely to succeed uniformly across Europe, but instead, flexible strategies are needed.
• Harm associated with alcohol abuse is largely related to high-risk drinking patterns.
• The vast majority of European adults consume alcohol responsibly and it is now widely recognised that patterns of drinking, and not simply volume of alcohol consumption, provide the best predictors of alcohol-related harm.
• Any alcohol abuse reduction strategy should be underpinned by robust evidence and sound data.
• The most effective strategies for reducing harm associated with alcohol abuse are those that bring about sustainable results in reducing risky drinking patterns.

ABOUT DRINKWISE AUSTRALIA
DrinkWise Australia is committed to shaping a healthier and safer drinking culture in Australia where drinking to excess, or drinking too young, is considered undesirable. We are an independent, not-for profit, evidence-based organisation that relies on voluntary contributions from the alcohol industry.
As part of our ongoing community education activities, DrinkWise Australia, working in collaboration with its producer members who represent 80% (by volume) of the alcohol sold in Australia, has launched new consumer information messages that will appear on the labels of alcohol products in Australia.
The purpose of this education activity is to encourage you to ‘Get the Facts’ from our website so that you can make informed decisions about your drinking.
Here you will find a collection of Factsheets, informed by experts, that will provide you with a quick summary of a range of issues associated with alcohol, tips for reducing your risks and places to go for further information and assistance.
For the facts
Drinkaware aims to change the UK’s drinking habits for the better. We promote responsible drinking and find innovative ways to challenge the national drinking culture to help reduce alcohol misuse and minimise alcohol-related harm.
An independent, UK-wide charity, we are supported by voluntary donations from across the drinks industry to equip people with the knowledge they need to make decisions about how much they drink.
We work with the drinks companies and retailers to help tackle alcohol misuse. We also work with organisations and individuals across the UK to fulfil the educational, community and awareness campaigning function envisaged in the Government’s Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy. We do this by providing accessible, evidence-based information about alcohol and its effects to employers, young people, teachers, parents and community workers. Using a range of mediums, such as film, multimedia and TV, we help dispel myths and present the honest facts about alcohol.
