NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanna Lee Communications, Inc., an award-winning marketing agency that integrates traditional public relations with innovative social media marketing, today announces it has been renamed agency of record for Leblon USA. The company's products include its flagship Leblon Cachaca, the original pot-distilled Cachaca that created the premium Cachaca category in the U.S., Cedilla Acai Liqueur; and, Maison Leblon Reserva Especial, a single batch Cachaca aged for up to two years in French oak. The agency worked with Leblon several years ago to promote their "Legalize Cachaca" campaign, which ultimately earned Cachaca its own designation as an official spirit and a distinctive product of Brazil.
The yearlong program will leverage Brazil's hosting of the 2014 World Cup and includes media relations, mixology community outreach and experiential events. It also includes social media consulting for a 360-degree integrated marketing approach.
"Hanna Lee Communications is the best agency in the business," says Steve Luttmann, CEO and Founder, Leblon USA. "They have been our partners since the very beginning. They helped us launch and got the word out about our 'Legalize Cachaca' campaign. We're very excited to be back together for the World Cup."
"In the hospitality business, there's nothing more important than repeat customers. It's the same in PR," says Hanna Lee, President and Founder, Hanna Lee Communications. "We are looking forward to our second round with Leblon. With the 2014 World Cup fast approaching and Brazil top of mind, we're eager to leverage all of the excitement by making Leblon synonymous with this wonderful country and its unique spirit, Cachaca."
