Grand Marnier gets Frenglish in ads

30 May, 2008

Grand Marnier is being promoted in a new summer cocktail as part of the brand's biggest ever UK marketing push.

The seven-figure campaign, called Frenglish, will be written in a mix of French and English to reflect the combination of French Grand Marnier with English elderflower cordial in the

grand

esprit cocktail.

A programme of sampling at major consumer events such as the BBC Good Food Summer Festival and Taste of London aims to introduce the cocktail to a minimum of 100,000 consumers.

Guillaume Villerabel, Marnier-Lapostolle area export manager for UK, Benelux & Russia, said: "We believe we have created a new classic drink for the summer which will appeal to sophisticated consumers ."

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
