Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Launch
During June 2015, Brown-Forman Greece launched Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, a sweet mix of the famous whisky with honey. Under this scope, we created and implemented an inspiring 360º PR plan to support the launch and build brand image. With a series of experiential actions, the plan succeeded in getting both internal & external audience acquainted with the new member of Jack Daniel’s family. Corresponding to Greek market’s shift towards mixology Brown-Forman welcomed Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, World’s Fastest Growing Global Spirit Brand, which represents a lighter and more contemporary way of enjoying Jack Daniel’s no7.
Jack Honey was launched in 3 phases:
Creative kit dispatch to internal audiences (Brown-Forman’s employees, clients & distributors) so as to introduce Jack Honey.
Invitation to meet the new Jack family member in an unexpected kick off meeting, realized in a movie theatre. Brown-Forman’s employees & distributors tasted first Jack Honey’s unique blend and got motivated by product’s performance in other countries and by the objectives for the Greek market.
