Absolut Elyx – Craft of Perfection
The key to connecting vodka with craftsmanship.
When Pernod Ricard tasked us to launch Absolut Elyx in Singapore, we knew it was a tough task.
To begin with, although the Absolut brand name resonated with collectors, drinkers had little affinity with the brand. As a spirit, other brands were seen as more premium.
To bring out the more refined qualities of Absolut Elyx, we needed to highlight its dedication to craftsmanship. And so, we found a space and curated an entire experience.
At the heart of it all was Mr Chow, a humble keysmith we found at the heart of Chinatown. Guests were sent blank keys and upon arrival, Mr Chow would make them a perfectly cut key that opened a door.
When inside, guests didn’t just get to try Absolut Elyx. They were guided on a journey that involved an Absolut Ambassador mixologist specially flown in from Sweden, a lesson in letterpress printing, pottery and smooth vibes of an acclaimed DJ.
Over $1.2mil worth of PR exposure, including a 3-minute coverage by Channel News Asia and a 2-minute report by Channel 5 (the first for an alcohol brand).
Over 6,000 unique microsite visitors in just 4 days.
300 invited guests, 746 at the door.
