“Our association to the Design Indaba was created in order to position the brand in an environment that not only allows for the brand to engage with its key target market but to tell the brand story which symbolizes creativity, diversity and versatility”, commented Fine Brandy By Design Marketing Manager, Shelley Else.

Following the success of the Bar Design Competition launch in February, Fine Brandy By Design announced a two-year sponsorship deal making them the official brandy supplier of the International Design Indaba. This relationship seeks to create premium brandy consumer experiences that drive and elevate the aspirational appeal and consumer acceptability of the category as a whole.

“By having the Bar Design Initiative competition, we’re combining our best brandies in the portfolio that are crafted and designed to be exceptional and worthy of internationally recognised awards, with the best of South Africa’s design talent, and we will showcase the excellence that is design through the creation of our Mobile Brandy Bar”, Else added.
