As a global spirits producer, we have a responsibility to help reduce the harmful use of alcohol.
This means marketing our brands in the right way – only targeting people of legal drinking age and encouraging those who choose to drink, to do so in moderation as part of a mindful lifestyle. That’s why, for the last 30 years, we’ve worked with industry partners to promote responsible drinking in countries where we operate.
Our campaigns have raised awareness and sparked conversations about reducing excessive consumption, preventing underage drinking, and discouraging drinking and driving. We’ve reached millions of people with the information and tools they need to make mindful and responsible choices for themselves and their families.

Making it Happen
Marketing Responsibly in the Digital Age
Through our partnership with the International Alliance for Responsible Drinking (IARD), we’re committed to responsible marketing practices on digital platforms to ensure our advertising and marketing messages only target adults of legal drinking age who choose to drink.
We’ve come together with like-minded companies, to commit to responsible marketing standards for digital channels based on best practices, including five safeguards:
- Include an age affirmation mechanism for all social media sites to ensure marketing communications only engage adults over the legal drinking age.
- Implement a Forward Advice Notice (FAN) stating that all content should not be forwarded to anyone under the legal drinking age.
- Promote responsible consumption, including a responsible drinking message.
- Secure transparency statement / official statement authenticating accounts.
- Make available community guidelines on User Generated Content (UGC) policy.
Together we are committed to do our part to help reduce the harmful use of alcohol and our brand marketing teams have achieved 79% compliance in the markets audited by the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA) and IARD in 2018.
