Responsible Drinking Website

Austrian Spirits Association
2008 > Ongoing
#AwarenessRaising #Consumerinfowebsite


To promote and raise awareness of responsible drinking.


The consumer information website contains five sections.  Each section contains sub-sections relating to the topic:

  • Introduction: information such as what a standard drink is and responsible drinking guidelines.
  • Alcohol and its effects: information such as what alcohol is and myths. 
  • Stages of life: information about specific to different times of life such as, under 18’s; parenthood; and over 50’s age group.
  • Drink Driving: information such as the BAC limits and how to get home safely.
  • Top-Tips: information such as how to enjoy your evening and dealing with the morning after a night out.

Visibility of the website is spread through Members of the Austrian Spirits Association who add the website address to POS (Point of Sale) and communication materials.  Co-operation with Ministry of Transport helped to increase awareness of drink-driving and led the start of the Austrian-wide media (billboard, TV, radio) campaign “Alkohol am Steuer: Könnten Sie damit leben?” (Drink-driving: could you live with it?) in October 2010.
