Jim Beam is now in highly acclaimed good company by taking home top bronze honors at the prestigious EFFIE awards for our global Beam Devil’s Cut launch campaign. In the world of advertising, receiving a global EFFIE award is equivalent to the Oscars … red carpet and all!
Beam was only one of three worldwide finalists who won. Nike also won a bronze and Febreze won a silver for its Olympic work. “We BEAT the likes of Coke and Diageo and a dozen other major finalists, so this is something to be really proud of,” said Chris Peddy, VP Global Marketing.
Congratulations to our global marketing team as well as our agency partners who were inspired by the core behavioral idea of unleashing the devil’s spirit of Jim Beam. “This was truly a team and 360 inspired consumer effort,” said Chris. “Obviously our business results speak for themselves and are also a primary reason why we won.”
Devil’s Cut is now sold in more than 20 countries around the world.
