CASE STUDY - ENGLISH DRINKS COMPANY
The English Drinks Company came to us looking to launch a new gin into the market and were initially looking for assistance with labeling, sales, PR and social media. A few successful campaigns later, and the marketing requirements just grew and grew.
What We Did
Now we just love gin, and The English Drinks Company certainly holds a special place in our heart. After a successful first product launch of their Cucumber Gin, the success then bought us the pleasure of launching two further SKU’s for them.
And how did we successfully launch this fabulous range of gin? We gave it the love and TLC it deserved.
We fully supported The English Drinks Company with a targeted PR campaign, spanning across consumer and trade. This was instrumental in gaining the numerous retailer listings we helped them secure.
Added to that, we’re managing their social media platforms, ensuring the brand is putting our engaging content. But let’s face it, who just wants to talk about gin – people want to be drinking it! And we’ve had the pleasure of managing consumer events for The English Drinks Company which provided an excellent brand building and sales opportunity (we also grabbed a whole load of email addresses whilst we were there too!).
We all know gin makes the perfect partner in a cocktail – that’s why we especially loved creating a series of recipes for photography. We opened our little black book and called on some exclusive bars to make sure our recipes were current and on trend. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
