WHETHER YOU LOVE IT OR HATE IT, TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST TIME BEFORE 14 AUGUST 2017 FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN ONE-OF-A-KIND PERSONALISED ARTWORK
16 May 2017: From 3 July 2017 you could be in with the chance of winning a one-of-a-kind artwork personalised to your opinion with Laphroaig. The Islay single malt has never shied away from strong opinions and that’s why their award-winning #OpinionsWelcomeTM campaign is back for another year and bolder than ever. Celebrating opinions around the world Laphroaig is challenging you to relive your first time trying the whisky.
From 3 July 2017, Laphroaig® will offer you the chance to publically share the first time you tried Laphroaig on the ‘Opinions Wall’, whether you’re a seasoned fan or a debut taster. So whether you think the inimitable whisky is like having your “tongue pinched by a briney crab” or tastes “smokier than Darth Vader’s funeral pyre”, get sipping!
HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
Laphroaig®’s varying levels of smoky intensity rarely fails to illicit a powerful reaction. Indeed, out of all the Islay peated malts, Laphroaig® is the one that gets the most extreme reactions. It’s a complex beast, and as such has always divided opinion. If you love it or you hate it – you are rarely indifferent and you’ll always remember your first time.
Championing this unforgettable experience, Laphroaig® is encouraging you to demonstrate the striking range of flavourful idiosyncrasies you experienced when trying the whisky for the first time by offering you the space to say what you like about any Laphroaig expression. You become the opinion’s designer, using various design templates on the website to give extra voice to your opinion.
To be in with the chance of winning your very own personalised artwork, simply visit the #OpinionsWelcome™ website (www.Laphroaig.com/Opinions) and enter your opinion. Laphroaig® will commission up and coming typographers and calligraphers to turn a selection of the best opinions each week into a unique piece of artwork that will be sent to the winners.
As well as giving voice to your opinion via the printed word, the #OpinionsWelcome™ site has also begun to build a collection of film. Laphroaig® will film the making of 1-2 artworks per week, creating a mini film saluting the best opinions. The campaign will also see fan’s feedback immortalised outdoors, in magazines, and on banner ads across the world, as well as being showcased at whisky tastings.
