A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
The launch is part of Bombay Sapphire’s strategy to “premiumise the G&T drinking experience”.
The glasses are to be seeded nationwide with over 30,000 glasses going into the on-trade. The launch will be supported by outdoor advertising to encourage the brand’s target 25-34 year old ABC1 audience to try the “Ultimate G&T”.
Consumers can also get their hands on the Balloon Glasses via an off-trade gift with purchase promotion that is running in the convenience channel. By purchasing a large bottle of Bombay Sapphire, consumers can claim to free glasses at www.drinksmadeeasy.co.uk.
Bombay Sapphire is currently experiencing MAT Volume growth of + 16.7% and MAT Value growth of + 30.1%* in the on-trade.
