Diageo is currently in the midst of reviewing its media agency roster. Diageo has confirmed the pitch to Marketing but declined to comment further on the details of the pitch.

A spokesperson from the company said that it is “reviewing its agency roster through a managed pitch process.”

Media report understands that the pitch covers major SEA markets and cuts across a range of brands including Guinness, Smirnoff, Johnnie Walker, Baileys, Singleton, Haig, Ciroc and Benmore. According to sources, the review includes both digital and traditional media.

Late last year the brand also called for a closed door global creative review. According to global reports, the account was finally handed to creative agency Anomaly after a pitch that saw its incumbent of 15 years BBH, along with Ogilvy & Mather, BBDO and Wieden + Kennedy pitching for the account.

Recently Diageo was working on launching a new “smart bottle” which it claims will “completely change the role of a bottle in the consumer experience”. The connected “smart bottle” aims to enhance the consumer experience by using printed sensor tags which can detect both the sealed and opened state of each bottle.
