Space creates Asia-wide TV for Glenfiddich's Experimental Series starting in Taiwan

Glenfiddich.jpgGlenfiddich, the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky, has launched a new global TV ad campaign in Asia, starting with Taiwan, to support the Glenfiddich Experimental Series.
The brand's latest range combines Glenfiddich's passion for pushing Scotch whisky boundaries and collaborating with trailblazers beyond the world of whisky to unlock new drinking experiences.

The 60-second TV ad, developed by creative agency Space, aims to attract a new generation of whisky drinkers around the world. The film will support one of the first expressions in the range, the Glenfiddich IPA Experiment, the world's first single malt whisky finished in India Pale Ale (IPA) casks.
Glenfiffich 2.jpgThe creative concept behind the film, "The Experimental Series", explores the extremes of human intellect through a series of scenarios including the first sparks of love, the carelessness with which we sometimes treat the planet, and the positivity that results from fostering our curious nature. These vignettes eventually focus in on mastery and creativity, reflecting the guiding principle behind the new products: only by mastering our art do we earn the right to truly experiment. The film's stark imagery, bold visual style and intense rhythmic soundtrack further demonstrate how Glenfiddich is re-writing the whisky rulebook with this new range.
In Taiwan the film will run on a range of terrestrial and satellite channels covering news, sport, movie and knowledge and including TTV/CTV/CTS/FTV, LS Time Movie, AXN, Fox and Discovery.
Glenfiffich3.jpgThe ad acts as the centre piece of a 360 communications plan for the Glenfiddich Experimental Series that includes social media, shopper, PR, experiential and on-trade activation, which is being rolled out across Asia and beyond. Space has created two additional films - both part of the TV push across Asia - which showcase the disruptive serves which it has developed as part of the Glenfiddich Experimental Series. The films are stylish and imaginative, and shot in reverse to emphasise the experimental aspect of the new whiskies.

Jason Nicholas, Managing Partner, Space said, "The Glenfiddich Experimental Series is a rare chance to work on a launch that really redefines a category. It has been a privilege and an honour to work on such an ambitious brief and with a client brave enough to break convention in whisky advertising."
Space worked with Academy Films and director Ben Tricklebank for the ad. Tricklebank has previously directed TV commercials for Mini and Sony Bravia, a social media controlled documentary for PlayStation's Gran Turismo 6 and has had an art installation showcased at London's Barbican Centre.
