The Brief

The well-known Scottish soft drinks brand, Bon Accord, approached Four Marketing Agency to announce that its product would be appearing in Morrison’s stores across Scotland. This included a significant press announcement and work to redefine their brand identity.

The Strategy
Our team created a tailored PR strategy to make Bon Accord’s announcement as impactful as possible. This included...

  1. Developing a PR strategy to announce the new supermarket listing, including a significant press launch to national, regional and trade media.
  2. Securing several business profiling opportunities in national and trade press, allowing Bon Accord to redefine its brand messages.

The Impact

We secured 25 pieces of media coverage for Bon Accord, achieving an OTS of over 36.8 million. Notable hits include The Herald, The Scotsman, The Courier, Edinburgh Evening News and Larder Magazine.

Through revised key messaging included in the stockist release, we ensured Bon Accord gained a new reputation for being a healthier, naturally-sweetened, more flavoursome soft drinks and mixer brand.
