Story UK Ltd Celebrates Peat Football for Ardbeg Distillery

Story Uk Ltd teamed up with production company th1ng to create a unique World Cup spot for Ardbeg Distillery’s new Ardbeg Auriverdes whiskey.

Directed by David Boni, in collaboration with animation director Shay Hamias, the spot celebrates both Islay, Scotland’s distinctive brand of “peat football” and Ardberg Distllery. Shot in black and white, the 75-second spot opens on an old photo of an Islay football team. One of the players steps out of the photograph, punts an old leather ball out of the frame, and starts a chain reaction that runs through the remainder of the ad. There’s been a barrage of soccer related advertising leading up to the World Cup, but this one stands out with a unique setting and approach. Stick with us after the jump for limited credits.
