Tetley's to use Huntsman for new campaign

06 Apr
The Tetley's ale brand is to use its iconic Huntsman figure as part of a new advertising campaign.

Marketing Week reports that Billington Cartmell is handling the promotion, which will include radio, outdoor, point-of-sale and experimental marketing strategies as part of a £3 million investment.

It will encourage consumers to text a given number to locate the nearest pub where a Tetley's party will be staged, as explained by the Huntsman in the promotion.

The strategy will see participants receive the chance to sample a free pint, with the Huntsman visiting establishments and buying guests drinks as part of what the publication calls a pub theatre promotion.

Paul Davies, director of brands at Carlsberg UK - which owns Tetley's - suggested the figure is a unique part of the company's offering.

He is quoted by the news provider as saying: "The Huntsman is at the very heart of what Tetley's cask ale is all about. He signifies quality and heritage."

Those looking for marketing jobs may already be aware that Carlsberg is the official beer of the England football team, which will take part in this summer's FIFA World Cup in South Africa.ADNFCR-2176-ID-19706212-ADNFCR
