Bacardi is giving a renewed advertising boost to its Eristoff premium vodka brand in a new worldwide TV campaign that draws on its historic associations with an area famous for its large wolf population.
Leagas Delaney in the UK has created the new commercial, which is making its debut across Europe and India before rolling out worldwide later this year backed by press and outdoor activity.
Based on a 19th-century recipe, Eristoff has achieved rising popularity in the Benelux countries over the past four years and is second only to Smirnoff in the Spanish market.
The spot features a man who appears to be fleeing from a wolf pack in a snowbound central European forest. But the action ends with a surprising twist when it is revealed to be taking place inside a "snowstorm" paperweight.

Hundreds of Australian sun-lovers carrying out their poolside rituals in unison feature in a campaign to emphasise how Drumstick ice-cream is synonymous with summers Down Under.
Created by Publicis Mojo, the advertising resulted from agency research showing that Drumstick has become regarded as an essential part of the summer season since Nestle Peters introduced it 44 years ago.
The commercial presents Drumstick as familiar a summer ritual as laying out the towels on the sun loungers, swatting flies and "bombing" into the water.

Masterfoods is using new TV and print advertising for its M&M's confectionery brand to drive consumers to an interactive website where they can create their own "Inner M" character.
The initiative is the result of an online survey carried out on the brand's behalf among 1,570 people, less than a fifth of whom admitted that they had enough fun.
The website, BecomeAnMM.com, features the Character Creator, where users can customise their own Inner M likeness by choosing from the shapes, colours, hair, facial features and accessories on offer.
Visitors to the website can also play online games and enter a gallery in which they can share their Inner M images with family and friends.
Over time, a virtual store will offer visitors the chance to personalise items such as mugs, mouse pads and shirts.
