‘It’s not pink, it’s Puerto’: an ‘anti-pink’ campaign that introduces the UK to the darkly sophisticated and unconventional world of Puerto de Indias via the iconic black strawberry.
In a booming market, launching ‘another pink gin’ to a UK audience had a unique set of challenges. Whilst a huge success story in Spain, the proliferation of pink gin in the UK had created an indistinguishable ‘wallpaper of pink’, lacking unisex appeal and grown up sophistication. It was time for an edgier alternative that was about more than colour. It was time for an anti-pink pink gin campaign.
‘It’s not pink, it’s Puerto’ asserts Puerto de Indias’ non-conformity head on and challenges the assumption that all pink gins are the same, elevating the brand above the competition with authority and confidence.
The multi-channel campaign – which spanned influencer activity, social, guerilla activation, OOH, digital media, print and experiential – glorified the unique strawberry flavor profile, via the darkly sophisticated world of the iconic black strawberry, a symbol of Puerto de Indias’ unconventionality, and encouraged them to ‘unthink pink’ once and for all.
