NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the Royal Wedding approaches, Britain’s oldest cultural institution is preparing to embrace its new American influence with the arrival of its new royal. Inspired by this cultural shift, Boodles® Proper British Gin is marking the occasion with the unveiling of its new brand platform – The New Proper.
Designed to usher Americans everywhere into a new age of what it means to be “truly proper”, the campaign celebrates a modern era of etiquette and style with a respectful nod to Boodles’ British heritage. From what to wear to a wedding to the best way to drink a cocktail and shake a hand, The New Proper leaves no old school tradition unchallenged as Boodles Gin ushers its stodgy ways into the twenty-first century.
To kick off the campaign, Boodles Gin will release “The Boodles Guide to The New Proper” – a how-to video series featuring Etiquette Expert Myka Meier and World Sartorialist Mobolaji Dawodu and guiding viewers through modern tips and etiquette tricks relevant to current culture including: wedding do’s and don’ts, proper dining, men’s style tips, cocktail etiquette and more.
“I approach etiquette as being kind and respectful to everyone around us,” says Myka Meier, Etiquette Expert and founder of Beaumont Etiquette. “The old rules of being stuffy and exclusive are no longer appropriate. Etiquette is more about emotional touches and social skills to go anywhere and do anything.”
“Style is very personal and is most importantly about being comfortable in your own skin,” says Mobolaji Dawodu, World Sartorialist. “It’s very much inspired by the past, but also looking towards the future.”
Throughout the season, Boodles Gin will also be sharing reimagined classic British cocktails. From a new take on a classic Gin Fizz to a Bramble fit for those sixth in line to the throne, Britain’s classics will be given a new twist for today’s modern drinking occasions.
Like Britain’s new American royal, Boodles Proper British Gin is authentic and approachable – a refreshing spirit for today’s contemporary world. Featuring a blend of botanicals including sage, rosemary and nutmeg with a noticeable omission of citrus, Boodles Gin is perfectly balanced and refined, making it suitable for any drink, including the ever-classic Boodles & Tonic.
