From Multi-Sensory Champage Events to Botanical Gin Workshops

From immersive gin garden experiences that illuminate a product's best uses to interactive festival pop-ups, alcohol activations serve as key brand touchpoints in a time when consumers seek face-to-face interaction. Ranging from single-day events to pop-ups that run for several months, the wide range of temporary retail spaces and activations from alcohol brands prove that experiential marketing continues to resonate particularly well in the realm of spirits and liquor.

The Pimm's Pop-Up Teapot Bar is a creative alcohol activation hosted by the Diageo-owned brand at Wimbledon 2015. The playful pop-up bar offered tournament attendees an opportunity to try Pimm's-based cocktails and enjoy the treats one would expect at a traditional English tea party.

The Fleurs des Rêves for Perrier-Jouët was a four-day multi-sensory experience hosted at the London Edition hotel in Soho. The interactive experience was designed by multi-sensory event agency Bompas & Parr and featured color-changing flowers and an introduction to floriography in addition to champagne tastings.
