How we took Aperol Sprtiz perfect serve and changed drinking habits across the UK




We were tasked with driving trial and sales of Aperol Spritz in stylish bars in key locations across the UK.
Research revealed that once our target audience had chosen the first drink of the evening, they were more likely
to stick with 
that drink for the rest of the night.

Delivering on the brand proposition of ‘It starts with Aperol Spritz’, we needed to target the early evening
occasion and entice drinkers to discover the Italian art of aperitivo, and with it Aperol Spritz.




We created the ‘It Starts with…’ pop-up bar. A 360° experience with contemporary furnishings,
Vespa seating and fresh orange displays to showcase the best of Italian style. Staffing was key and our bar
and street teams comprised of 40 Italians. Not only did they serve to bring the authentic Mediterranean vibe to
the occasion, they were the natural advocates we needed to charm and educate customers and outlet staff alike.

The ‘It starts with…’ presence was all around the bar with stylish lighting, bar paraphernalia
and table buttons that allowed drinkers to summon an Aperol Spritz with ease.
