Sydney, Australia – Following a competitive pitch, media strategy specialist Slingshot has acquired the media strategy, planning and buying duties of Australian gin brand, Four Pillars Gin.
The Yarra Valley-based distillery was established in 2013. Four Pillars Gin has been named ‘International Gin Producer of the Year’ for two consecutive years, the latest in 2020’s International Wine and Spirits Competition.
This win for Slingshot comes hot on the heels of other client wins including Masterpet, Endeavour Consumer Health, and Ayam.
Slingshot CIO and Partner Simon Corbett said winning the Four Pillars Gin business is a dream come true.
“Our agency aspires to work with brands and individuals who stretch and challenge us, so we are loving working with the Four Pillars team. A world-leading brand and a collection of super smart individuals is a great cocktail for us,” Corbett said.
Jemma Blanch, director of marketing, events and activations at Four Pillars, added, “We intuitively have a strong sense of who our customers are but we wanted an agency that would question our assumptions and get us thinking in some fresh ways, Slingshot [has] definitely done that and we have really welcomed their creative thinking. We are excited about our upcoming summer campaign.”
The appointment by the gin producer is with immediate effect.
