Beam Suntory is a world leader in premium spirits producing renowned bourbons, Japanese whiskies, single malt scotches, tequilas and cognac. Key brands under its portfolio include Jim Beam, Auchentoshan, Roku Gin, Maker’s Mark, Strong Zero and Horoyoi.
Beam Suntory wanted to disrupt the traditional whisky perception of Auchentoshan by making it a drink accessible to the younger audience and to be enjoyed in everyday celebratory moments.
Alcohol advertising has traditionally been offline, featured in magazines, billboards, TV programs or on-premise placements in bars and clubs. How to successfully bring this type of advertising online? On top of that, there are varying levels of alcohol restrictions across APAC markets.
