Drambuie

By running and publicising an extremely successful competition and event, we repositioned this classic world-famous brand as the dream beverage for the younger market.

Executive Summary

Drambuie is a golden coloured, 40% ABV liqueur made from scotch whisky, honey, herbs and spices.

The brand had been owned by the MacKinnon family for a hundred years but was bought by William Grant & Sons in 2014.

A versatile spirit that appeals to a variety of taste buds, we were set out to promote the versatility.

The Challenge

Drambuie is a unique combination of aged Scotch whiskies, heather honey and a blend of herbs and spices. Our campaign involved developing a strong consumer engagement program that launched and promoted the competition The Premise – an opportunity for an Australian to win their dream bar – in doing so we positioned Drambuie as a beverage of choice for a younger target audience.
