Whyte & Mackay has returned to posters for the first time in three
years with a Christmas campaign through CDP.
The campaign, which breaks in Scotland this week, dwells on the fact

The ad was created by CDP’s Noel Hasson, Jon Tompkin and Simon Impey,
with typographer by Mark Osborne and photography by Mike Parsons.
The campaign will be supported by a range of sales promotions, including
trade packs for pubs and clubs. These will contain two pieces of
mistletoe and two mats (to go under the mistletoe).

in a television campaign which aimed to debunk the pompous myths that
had grown up around whisky-drinking.
