As part of a partnership between Jim Beam and Snapchat, branded video content will appear throughout various Snapchat Live Stories. The activity will run in the US from now until the end of October, and will promote the Jim Beam Apple expression, which was launched earlier this year.

'Live Stories' are curated streams of user-submitted 'Snaps' from various locations and events. When Snapchat users watch selected Live Stories, those 21 years and older will see video ads, viewable for 10 seconds, featuring the brand’s signature serve: Jim Beam Apple and soda.

Andrea Javor, senior director, media at Beam Suntory said: “We take pride in staying at the forefront of innovation, not only with our product offerings but also through our marketing efforts, and we consider Snapchat an excellent strategic partner...”

According to Beam Suntory, Snapchat is currently the fastest growing platform for legal drinking age Millennials.

Financial details behind the tie-up were not disclosed.
