Tanqueray x Relish: in time for summer

In 2022, Relish facilitated a successful partnership between Tanqueray and handpicked food takeaway delivery partners aligned with their campaign goals. Tanqueray wanted to place samples with multiple carriers to encourage more product trials while testing the efficiency of product sampling as a marketing channel for their products.

We worked hard with Tanqueray to find takeaway partners that fit their target audience, enabling age verification at the door, a fundamental need for the campaign. Our carriers worked closely with Tanqueray to turn the campaign around quickly in time for summer. At the same time, Relish enabled the printing, fulfilment, and delivery of A6 leaflets to drive sales alongside the drinks samples.
