Forty Five Vermouth

This little social promo was created for our friends at The Spirit of Manchester Distillery, to celebrate their exciting new product; Forty Five Vermouth. 

Forty Five Vermouth is a truly British vermouth with industry at its core. Made with 100% English wine and the fortified with a blend of botanicals; the brand set out to create an aromatic vermouth to take on the tiresome, and confront the ordinary.

Tiny Rebel Brewery

Here’s a little social promo video we produced for Welsh brewers Tiny Rebel
 
Now it might not be immediately obvious by the final film, but this piece of content was produced during the COVID 19 lock down in Director Marc’s dining room – come makeshift studio.
 
Amazing what’s possible in a pinch, eh?

JW Lees Brewery // Generation 5000

Coolbox recently teamed up with JW Lees Brewery to create a video to celebrate their Generation 5000 yeast!

The launch campaign gives beer fans a unique look into how J.W. Lees have developed their yeast for 5000 generations, and sheds light on an often forgotten ingredient.

JW Lees yeast is a special, unique ingredient that adds rare character and flavour to our beers that can’t be reproduced or replicated anywhere else.

We Are Creation // Brand Activation

Our friends at We Are Creation are experts in brand activation for the drinks industry. They approached Coolbox to help them make a little ‘sizzle reel’ to show off some of their best projects of past few years.
 
The brief was simple enough; create a series of nice scenes with a selection of the agency’s best barware and brand elements. 
 
Simple enough? We thought it needed a little extra ‘je nais se quois’ to make it really sing. This came in the form of super slow motion destruction.  

Tamdhu Whisky // From Spain to Speyside // A Mini-Documentary

Coolbox joined Distillery Manager Sandy McIntyre and Global Brand Ambassador Gordon Dundas on their journey through Spain to see how Tamdhu’s beautiful sherry casks are produced.

Starting in the north of the country, deep in the forests surrounding Lugo we watched the mighty European Oak trees being felled, and transported to the local sawmill. The staves then enter the cooperages of southern Spain, as expert craftsmen transform the wooden slats into casks over flaming pits. Finally, these casks are filled with Oloroso sherry and are left to mature for several years. They are then shipped to Scotland, to live out their final years in the cool Speyside warehouses at Tamdhu.

Arber Gin – Cocktail Videos

We’ve been working with LWC Drinks in Manchester to create some social video content for their new brand, Arber Gin
 
Nine pot-stilled botanicals are combined to make a refreshing, botanical tribute to Agnes Arber; The first woman to receive the Gold Medal of The Linnean Society.
 

Coolbox produced a series of short, snappy cocktail videos, each using Arber Gin as the key ingredient. These were followed up by a selection of food pairing films, in which local Manchester restaurants would pair one of the Arber Gin cocktails with a dish from their menus. 

Johnnie Walker Whisky – First Footing

What a fantastic way to end the year, with our new film for Johnnie Walker whisky, featuring Scottish fashion and lifestyle blogger The Everyday Man.

With just a few days until Christmas, Glasgow-based PR agency 3X1 got in touch to ask Coolbox to produce a 20 second social media video for the Johnnie Walker Facebook page.

Despite the tight schedule, Coolbox were able to shoot and cut the video for Diageo within 24 hours, quite a turnaround I think you’ll agree. The video was launched online just before Christmas on the lead up to Hogmanay celebrations in Scotland.

Tamdhu Whisky – 50 Year Old Launch Film

Tamdhu Distillery have launched their 50 year old whisky, and Coolbox have spent the past 12 months following its journey. This is, without doubt, our favourite project we’ve ever worked on.

The care, dedication and love that goes into making a product like this is immeasurable. From the glass blowers at Dartington Crystal in Devon, to the silversmiths upstairs at Hamilton & Inches in Edinburgh, to the master distillers at Tamdhu in Aberlour.

We feel truly blessed to have been a part of telling the story of this wonderful whisky (and trust me, it is absolutely spectacular). If you have a spare few minutes, please watch our film, and check out the great microsite The Weather Digital put together for the launch: www.tamdhu50.com

Father’s Day at Glengoyne Distillery

For Father’s Day, Glengoyne asked Coolbox to produce a heart-warming social media video, featuring members of their distillery team.

We worked closely with The Weather Digital to capture short in-situ interviews with many familiar faces at Glengoyne, who told us about their most memorable, satisfying and interesting moments of being a father. And perhaps more importantly, what presents they were most excited about receiving this year (it’s not hard to guess what most of them said).
