H2 Male Media Opps: Glenfiddich launches new ad campaign

Subject: Digital, online, social media, video, TV

Brand: Glenfiddich, Scotch whiskey brand owned and produced by Winmo profile)

Opportunity: Launched a new campaign from here). The “Rethink Whisky” campaign will be supported on social and streaming video through July. It’s designed to introduce the brand “to a new generation of whisky drinkers” Michael Giardina, Glenfiddich senior brand manager, said in a statement.

Therefore, considering millennial engagement and stealing share from bourbon is the focus, digital sellers with high engagement rates among upscale men ages 21-35 should continue to go after H2 ad dollars.  Q4 is traditionally Glenfiddich’s top advertising period, according to Kantar Media. So, look for decision makers to use findings from this initial digital campaign to optimize a larger end of year campaign.

Keep in mind that this will be just one of several new WGS brand campaigns to come now that Rokkan is working on the company’s entire portfolio – not just Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve (research here).  Therefore, continue to seek new campaign dollars tied to WGS’s other top ad spending brands, including Tlllamore Dew and Sailor Jerry.

It appears that media is handled by Rokkan and in-house (maybe Resolute Digital still), but we’re not sure of the mix. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

Additional Insight

Media Spend: Glenfiddich only spent $352,000 on measured media last year compared to $4.2 million during 2014. A huge drop in print spending last year led to the decline, according to Kantar Media.
