The UK arm of Diageo has launched a consumer campaign for its pre-mix range in the country.

Diageo GB confirmed earlier this week that the push, which is part of the company's GBP5.9m (US$9.2m) spend on the pre-mix category over the next year, consists of three 30-second TV commercials, a 60-second online film and Facebook competition, six radio ads and online advertising. The online ad can be viewed below.

The Facebook competition offers consumers the chance to win a fridge containing pre-mix drinks.

“The pre-mix category is performing extremely well at the moment, with the whole category in growth,” said Alice Ponti, innovation manager for pre-mix in Europe at Diageo. “It’s important that we continue to support the range to maximise this growth, and through our new campaign, we are doing so in a way that will be fun and engaging, and reach a broad range of consumers.”

Diageo has a range of 15 pre-mix variants in the UK, based on Smirnoff, Gordon’s, Captain Morgan’s Spiced, Bulleit, J&B, Pimm’s, Archers and Bell’s.
