The Pernod Ricard brand commissioned Layton and photographer Dan Tobin Smith to create and shoot the glass droplets, each of which was hung containing flavour elements including rosemary, lavender and honeycomb. The campaign comprises outdoor, print and digital advertising featuring Smith’s photography. Launching this week, the campaign is being pushed online and on social media, including Instagram, while Chivas has also created online films showing how the droplets were made.
