Join the Polish revolution

To celebrate the conclusion of Global Brands' latest ad campaign, 12 bottles of Sobieski vodka are up for grabs.

Specifically targeting Polish communities in London, the campaign was the largest

undertaken by the company. Outdoor poster ads translated into Polish hit the capital on Sept 24 for two weeks. "The ads took the unusual step of writing the text in Polish - a move designed not only to attract Polish speakers but also to intrigue the rest of the population," a spokeswoman said. The campaign was 50 per cent bigger than previous advertising for the vodka brand, she added.

Sobieski is made from 100 per cent Dankowski rye which is distilled four times to ensure only the purest spirit remains. OLN has teamed up with Global Brands to offer two readers six bottles of Sobieski each.
