William Grant calls review for Hendricks gin
By Matt Williams, campaignlive.co.uk, Thursday, 30 June 2011 08:00AM
William Grant & Sons, the distiller, is looking for an agency to handle digital work for its Hendrick's gin brand.
The company has approached a number of agencies, and a shortlist is due to be finalised later this month.
The move comes as William Grant & Sons looks to provide greater investment into the Hendrick’s brand.
Currently the brand does not have a retained agency working on its digital communications and instead has used agencies to create campaigns on a project basis.
That situation is now expected to change, bringing it in line with other William Grant & Sons-owned brands, such as Glenfiddich, which works with Leagas Delaney, and Glenmorangie, which last year appointed WCRS&Co to oversee its global account.
Historically, the bulk of Hendrick’s marketing has focused on experiential activity. In January the brand kicked off an "adventure-themed" marketing campaign that gave consumers the opportunity to "have afternoon tea with a legend of adventure", such as the round-the-world yachtsman Sir Chay Blyth.
As Hendrick’s is, peculiarly for a gin, distilled in Scotland, the brand positions itself as a "gin made oddly", and is manufactured in a dark brown apothecary-style bottle.
