Martini Bianco gets a UK on-trade push

Bacardi Martini has lined up a GBP2m (US$3.1m) push for the Martini Bianco variant in the UK, centred around a suggested serve in the country's on-trade.

The sales, marketing and distribution joint venture said late last week that it will target the post-work, “playful” consumption session between 1700 and 2000 with the campaign. The serve, known as Martini Royale, comprises 7cl of Martini Bianco and 7cl of Prosecco, served over ice with a squeeze of lime and a sprig of mint.

The serve forms the main prong of a marketing campaign that has been designed to appeal to 20- to 30-year old “stylish” females. The activity will include sampling in selected on-trade accounts, a media partnership with ES magazine and digital and print advertising.

The Martini Royale has an RSP of GBP4.50 per serving.

The Martini stable includes Martini Bianco, Rosato, Rosso, Extra Dry, Asti, Prosecco, Rosé and Brut.
