Diageo Sends Consumers To Scotland Through In-Store Sensory Experience | B&T

Shoppers at Dan Murphy’s will be treated to a discovery journey through the Scottish whisky regions as part of the March Into Malts campaign.

Diageo Australia partnered with Reed Pacific Media and Dan Murphy’s to create four scents, which represent the famous Scotch whisky aroma’s distinct of each of the whisky producing regions in Scotland.

As part of the campaign to educate consumers on the extensive depth and range of Diageo’s Scottish single malt whiskies, consumers will be guided by scented point of sale materials on a multi-sensory journey. Four unique fragrances were created in conjunction with Simon McGoram, Diageo’s national whisky ambassador, representing Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside & Islands styles of whisky.

Lisa Whitworth, head of customer marketing at Diageo said: Whisky is a highly trending category and always recruiting new consumers. However, historically the category has been difficult to navigate at shelf, and most people don’t know where to start in their exploration of single malts. With trial being a major barrier to entry for spirits consumers, and Scotch in particular, scented marketing felt like an innovative solution to give prospective Scotch whisky fans the confidence to choose a product they’ll like at shelf without having to partake in a tasting experience. By creating the key flavour notes that best represent each region, consumers can be more targeted in their search, while also still having a range of products to choose from and explore.

Diageo is a global leader in beverage alcohol with an outstanding collection of brands across spirits and beer – a business built on the principles and foundations laid by the giants of the industry.

Reed Pacific Media is a scented shopper marketing agency, creating multi-sensory experiences for leading global brands. Creating memorable consumer brand connections.

To experience the fragrances and whiskies head into Dan Murphy’s in March.

Food is one part of the experience. And it has to be somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the dining experience. But the rest counts as well: The mood, the atmosphere, the music, the feeling, the design, the harmony between what you have on the plate and what surrounds the plate
