Martell ads focus on provenance

14 November, 2008

Pernod Ricard is getting behind Martell with a print advertising drive that trades

on the Cognac brand's French heritage.

Ads will appear in national newspaper supplements and high-end glossy magazines, including GQ,

the Spectator and National Geographic.

The campaign is aimed principally at men aged 35-plus who are existing Cognac drinkers.

Head of marketing Chris Seale said: "Our new advertising campaign gives Martell the opportunity to showcase the blend of old and new, which is at the heart of the brand

Pernod has also announced the launch of Beefeater 24 - a super-premium extension to its Beefeater gin brand. Available in luxury retailers such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols, it is made from 12 botanicals including

sencha tea and was created by gin master distiller Desmond Payne.
