New campaign showcases new brand positioning through £5m multi-channel campaign across 5 key markets worldwide.
Whitley Neill Gin and Red Brick Road launch the brand’s latest global campaign this week with the TV campaign debuting in Coronation Street on 25th October 2021. The campaign will introduce Whitley Neill Gin’s new global positioning, “Inspired by the world, distilled in London”.
The campaign acts as a celebration of the brilliantly British heritage of Whitley Neill, the only London gin brand that is distilled in the city of London, and of founder and 8th generation distiller Johnny Neill’s pursuit of flavour inspiration from around the world from which he has created the unique and innovative flavoured gins which are synonymous with Whitley Neill Gin. The campaign will drive brand awareness whilst also capitalising on the brand’s achievement of being named the UK’s most loved gin* and the UK’s number #1 selling premium gin**.
Created with Odelay Films and Ruby @ Red Brick Road, the campaign features 5x TV ads and a cinema campaign voiced by Billie Piper, as well as a fully integrated suite of print, outdoor and social assets which hero the brands core 4 variants: Whitley Neill Original Dry Gin, Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin, Whitley Neill Raspberry Gin and Whitley Neill Rhubarb and Ginger Gin.
The campaign will launch on TV and Cinema in w/c 25th October and be rolled out across Print, Outdoor, Social and Digital across UK, USA, South Africa, Canada and Australia.
James Stocker, Marketing Director at Halewood Artisanal Spirits, said “It’s been a great year for Whitley Neill Gin, as we have moved to our new home at the City of London Distillery, whilst also seeing strong sales and numerous award wins. Now, we continue to drive awareness for the brand, working alongside the fantastic team at Red Brick Road to create our biggest ever ad campaign and first TV appearance. We’re really happy with what we have achieved on this, and very much look forward to it rolling out on screen over the coming months”.
