Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) (formerly Quaker City Mercantile) Hopscotches to Glenfiddich Account
Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) creates a more modern edge for William Grant's Glenfiddich.
Quaker City Mercantile, a Philadelphia advertising firm with a reputation for the irreverent, has been chosen to craft a defiant image for a leading player in the often stuffy category of Scotch whisky. William Grant & Sons Inc., an importer and marketer of wine and spirits, picked Quaker City Mercantile (formerly known as Gyro Worldwide) as its agency of record in the United States for the Glenfiddich brand of single-malt scotch. Formerly billed in the United States as the "Friday scotch," Glenfiddich has taken on a much different demeanor in the campaign produced by Quaker City Mercantile.
Gyro's new campaign for Glenfiddich portrays it as way cool.
A brand perceived as stolid, even stodgy, has hired an upstart agency for an infusion of what is hoped will be a hipper, more irreverent attitude.
Gyro Worldwide in Philadelphia has become the agency in the United States for the Glenfiddich brand of single-malt Scotch whisky, distilled and sold by the British company William Grant & Sons Ltd. The assignment for the rest of the world remains at McCann-Erickson Worldwide Advertising in New York, part of the McCann-Erickson World Group unit of the Interpublic Group of Companies.
