THR33FOLD and Herradura Tequila, of Brown-Forman partnered to change the culture of tequila consumption.
During Cinco de Mayo everyone enjoys a little tequila, but the team here imagined transporting Miamians to the historic 19th century distillery of Casa Herradura in Amatitan Mexico via ambient 3D projections that would fully surround participants. 64ft X 24ft screens were erected to visually bring the distillery to life and the scent of citrus trees and vanilla was injected into the space to heighten the experience and bring out the notes of the 3 tequila expressions.

“It’s pretty neat that we recall only 40% of what we see after one month, but remember 60% of what we smell after one year. We wanted to create a moment that would stay with participants.”

Garnering data was also pivotal to measuring the success of the initiative. Our microsite collected traditional data, such as, gender, age, spirit preference, cocktail preference, brand preference and so on, while our “Spirit Cards” collected attendee data throughout the night.
“The Spirit Cards enabled us to collect real-time data, providing insights that will enable Herradura to perfect the experience at future Refine Your Spirit events. This was important, because if you want to create a cultural shift in the way people enjoy Tequila, the experience has to be perfect and scalable to extend across multiple cities. Since Miami was a test market for the concept, we wanted to gather as much data as possible.”
