The Glenlivet is a distillery near Ballindalloch in Moray, Scotland that produces single malt Scotch whisky.

The Glenlivet whisky


Working freelance with Publicis, I designed visuals as part of a wider campaign to depict a very special whisky. The visuals were part of a pitch to win work on developing short films, social media collateral and an immersive website. The project delivered a whisky bottle with no labeling or tasting notes information, it was just a matte black bottle to preserve the mystery. This was a direct collaboration with project managers, creative directors and art directors. I was involved with starting to develop the tone with mood boards and creating assets to be used in advertising collateral and social media.

Master your senses

Publicis London helped The Glenlivet make whisky history with the launch of the Master your Senses campaign. The global advertising campaign was created to support the launch of The Glenlivet Alpha, a new mysterious and rare single malt from The Glenlivet, The Single Malt That Started it All.

The Glenlivet Alpha was released with no age statement, cask information or tasting notes; the first time that an expression from the prestige whisky category has been released without any information. The whisky is presented in a matte black bottle to preserve the mystery and consumers are encouraged to let their senses lead their experience.
