Intercontinental Brands’ amaretto Zamaretto is sponsoring the third series of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Break-bumper ads will mean Zamaretto is advertised for 40 seconds every show.

Akvinta Vodka has teamed up with Harrods to offer customers a sensory kit containing two fig-scented candles, a massage soap and a grapefruit room spray when they buy a 70cl bottle. The kit “sets the scene to enjoy the luxurious drink and evoke Akvinta’s Mediterranean roots”.
