Client: Rémy Cointreau Brands (Rémy Martin, Mount Gay, Bruichladdich, Westland Whiskey)
To bolster the relationship that Rémy Cointreau’s core brands have with restaurants while also creating dining experiences for consumers where they can try Rémy Cointreau’s brands in a restaurant environment. To also help develop an interest among the younger generation for drinking cognac.
We first started working with Rémy Martin in 2016. We began by simply incorporating Rémy Martin XO into some of our high-profile chef events during the London Restaurant Festival. We then starting to help generate excitement around the Grand Tonic – and cocktail using Rémy Martin designed as an aperitif alternative to a gin & tonic or a glass of champagne. We did this by offering it as a welcome drink across over a dozen leading London restaurants during the London Restaurant Festival. Keen to reach an American Express audience we incorporated these drinks into the dining events we create for Amex Invites across the year. A good example of how our client relationships can work to mutual benefit.
With Bruichladdich, exceptional single malt from Islay, we created a Restaurant-Hopping Tour where customers got to try a different cocktail with the whisky alongside a small plate of food. Likewise with Mount Gay.
Client: Martin Miller’s Gin
Key focus to spread awareness and build brand exposure for both consumers, but also gain new relationships and listings with new accounts.
Working with Martin Miller’s during London Restaurant Festival for 3 years from 2018 with a focus on Restaurant-Hopping Tours and Tasting Menus. On top of show-stopper events such as Tasting Menu at Galvin at Windows, and more trendy locations like FENN at Fulham. Focusing on their Original Gin and adding their other expressions such as Westbourne Strench, 9 Moons and now their two seasonal special editions Summerful and Winterful with unique flavour profiles. We highlighted these products to American Express Cardmembers and restaurants around London via gastronomic experiences.
