Aperol Spritz

Making Aperol Spritz the hit drink of the

Australian summer


The Landscape

After significant sales growth over the previous two years, Aperol was looking to take the Aperol Spritz and the daily Italian occasion of ‘aperitivo’ to Australian metro culture and beyond.


The Goal

We were asked to significantly increase awareness – extending brand reach – while keeping it cool, premium and relevant to the core target audience, Australians aged 25-35.

social content


We created a social campaign aimed at shifting brand awareness and converting the unconverted among our target audience.

In doing so we were able to connect with Australians across multiple touchpoints, including...
