Thatchers Blood Orange Product Sampling Campaign


Thatchers Cider, a renowned cider producer, collaborated with us for another product sampling campaign in May 2022 to introduce and promote their Thatchers Blood Orange variant that was launched at the end of February 2022. The campaign specifically targeted offices with the highest concentration of 21-34 year olds across multiple cities in the UK. The main objectives were to raise brand awareness, drive consumer engagement, and evaluate the potential purchase intent for the product.

Campaign Execution

Thatchers Cider achieved remarkable success in the distribution of 150,000 Thatchers Blood Orange samples, strategically reaching prominent destinations such as Torquay, Exeter, Plymouth, Truro, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Sheffield, and Newcastle. Our mission was to focus on precise industry targeting, and through careful selection from our extensive network, we identified 421 companies that perfectly aligned with our desired demographic. These companies eagerly embraced the sampling initiative, offering their valued employees an exclusive chance to savour the delightful new cider variant firsthand, in addition to providing Thatchers with comprehensive qualitative and quantitative data through videography and the post-campaign questionnaire.


The product sampling campaign achieved an impressive consumer engagement rate of 21.27%, with 31,905 participants completing the post-campaign questionnaire. This feedback provided valuable insights into the reception and potential market demand for Thatchers Blood Orange. We discovered, at a price point of £5.50 for a 4-pack, the campaign had the potential to generate £160,000 in product sales based on the purchase intent results.
