Martell Pure Gourmet

Experiential PR & Activation

In 2010 Martell unveils a gastronomic initiative, Martell Pure Gourmet, which brings together the House of Martell chefs and salon masters to create culinary pairings with the range’s cognacs around the world. Working from Pernod Ricard’s global brief, Sambal Lab propose a reinterpretation of its launch and execution for Malaysia, producing a series of silver-service gourmet experientials—many never attempted anywhere else in the world before for Pure Gourmet—over the next 5 to 6 years.

The Pure Gourmet farm media launch achieved 100% attendance, and returned a PR Value of RM600,000, thirty times the agency budget.

The House of Bufori event returned a PR Value of RM843,870, three times the agency budget. Despite the huge success, a later Ryan Clift event topped it by a significant 25%.

This Pure Gourmet brief was the only one ever executed this way. Globally.
