The new advert, which will appear on TV, video-on-demand and in cinema throughout the summer, provides consumers with an insight into San Miguel’s rich history. The advert takes viewers on a journey through the brand’s incredible 125 year story, from its Spanish beginnings in 1890 - to a becoming a brand loved worldwide today.
David Scott, Director of Brands and Insight at Carlsberg UK, comments:
“The advert brings the brand’s 125 year heritage to life in a way that engages existing drinkers as well as those new to San Miguel.”
“The World Beer category is growing rapidly as consumers search for more premium offerings when they visit a pub, bar or restaurant, and San Miguel has continued to outperform the market with 14% year-on-year volume growth¹.”
San Miguel’s TV advertising will appear in prime slots, alongside shows such as Game of Thrones, Homeland and Champions League football. While in cinemas, the advert will feature alongside this year’s most highly anticipated film, James Bond: Spectre, due for release in October.
To coincide with the new campaign, San Miguel has refreshed it’s premium chalice glass to represent the adventurous and optimistic spirit of the brand.
