“Frazer and Jamie have been involved with Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd for a number of years now, originally working with Edinburgh Gin, but now also with our whisky portfolio of Glengoyne, Tamdhu and Smokehead Malts, covering a multitude of initiatives and events. These have ranged from introductions to the trade and follow up liaisons, developing and organising our Edinburgh Gin ‘Monday Night’ trade & training programme, assisting with and activating events, creating drink serves and working closely alongside our own sales and marketing teams to deliver a great experience.
Their reach isn’t just confined to local trade – the guys have a wide UK contact base – which makes it easier to have continuity over a wider geography.
I can say, without fear of contradiction, that Frazer and Jamie are professional, knowledgeable and hugely likeable – all traits that make working with them a pleasure.”
Alan Wardrop, UK Sales Manager, Ian Macleod Distillers
“3rdparty has been integral to the development of Edinburgh Cocktail Week over the last few years, working strategically with our team to develop brand and bar relationships and grow the festival both in terms of experience and footfall.
Both Jamie and Frazer each come with their own unique skill set which combine to offer a bespoke, creative and proactive service unlike any other agency we have worked with before. They come with years of experience and knowledge and are both very well connected and recognised within the Edinburgh and Scottish hospitality industry, as well as having strong connections with the London bar trade, which has helped open many doors and opportunities for us.
3rdparty’s way of working feels more like a hand in hand partnership rather than a client/agency relationship. They are never more than an email or phone call away and always make time for those last minute meetings. We look forward to continuing to work with Jamie and Frazer and would be happy to recommend their services.”
Gary Anderson, Managing Director, Edinburgh Cocktail Week
“Working with Jamie and Frazer on our recent activations has been invaluable. From the brief, to creating copy and content right through to activation implementation they consistently ensure first class delivery well beyond our expectations. Their contacts with the Scottish on trade and support for our event planning is excellent. Nothing is an issue and challenges along the way are met with professionalism and genuine care.”
Gemma Leisegang, Trade Marketing Manager, Moët Hennessy UK
“After coming highly recommended by a friend, Jamie and Frazer came on board in advance of our Seven Crofts Gin launch. Their inside knowledge of the trade, particularly with bartenders was invaluable in helping establish Seven Crofts as a must have premium spirit on some of the UK’s best back bars.”
Robert Hicks, Co-Founder, Highland Liquor Company
“3rdparty played a crucial role in the successful launch of Caorunn – super premium small batch Scottish gin – in top end bars thrououghout Scotland. Their commercial acumen and passion for the brand helped Caorunn to become one of the most loved gins amongst the bartender community. 3rdparty managed to translate our strategy to market conditions and creatively challenged big budget competitors with our new to the world, niche brand. We could easily rely on their professional approach and support 24/7. It was a great pleasure to work with Jamie and Frazer, who are absolutely trustworthy and credible individuals, and I look forward to working with 3rdparty in the future.”
Ibolya Bakos, Brand Manager, Caorunn Gin
