Ian Macleod Distillers

Ian Macleod Distillers was one of a number of brand owners to leverage the Virtual Travel Retail Expo as a launchpad for its latest expressions, revealing a new full-strength Edinburgh Gin flavour, Gooseberry & Elderflower. It joins the Rhubarb & Ginger, Lemon & Jasmine and Raspberry flavours in the channel.

The independent house of brands made full use of the Engagement Lounge to introduce the new line, shown in the tasting session here.

For Miami-based distributor InnoTRI, recently launched Cihuatán Xaman XO was among the major highlights of its multi-faceted display, which stretches through to Blancrux Cognac and Koskenkorva vodka, depicted in this lovely video.

International Beverage

With an offer that spans Old Pulteney, Balblair, Speyburn and Hankey Bannister whiskies, Caorunn gin plus a series of regional brands, International Beverage has an enviable range across its virtual showcase. We liked its daily live Q&A with distillery managers from Pulteney and Balblair aimed at offering insights into the whiskies they make.

You would expect family-owned drinks company Mast-Jägermeister to focus heavily on the power of its digital communications with the consumer at a virtual event, and that’s exactly what it did across its core Jägermeister range, including Jägermeister Manifest and the new Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee.

Among the highlights was the brand’s Jägermeister Live session in the Engagement Lounge, which we are pleased to feature here.
