Pernod Ricard is lining up a Europe-wide travel retail digital campaign for its Ballantine’s Scotch whisky brand.

The interactive push, which launched at Amsterdam's Schipol Airport this month, will feature branded pods using photo-imaging technology to take a “digital reflection” (see picture gallery, right) of participants, Pernod said on Friday (23 November). The image can then be manipulated using Microsoft Kinect technology and uploaded to Ballantine’s website. 

Participants can share the results through their Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts, Pernod said. The campaign, called 'Leave an Impression', is supported by advertising at check-in, post security and in the main concourse, while participants will receive a EUR2 (US$2.60) voucher off a bottle of Ballantine’s.

Pernod said the campaign will be rolled out to other European airports next year, with details to be confirmed.

Last month, a travel retail marketing firm told just-drinks that beverage firms need to get more creative with their digital campaigns as the sector is “such an obvious fit” for technology.
