Cruzan(R) Rum Thinks Life Is Better When You Don't Hurry

The Don't Hurry Campaign Encourages Embracing Every Moment One Sip at a Time

DEERFIELD, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- Today, Cruzan® Rum is bringing "The Don't Hurry" mindset to its fans with the newest iteration of the brand's popular digital campaign. The Don't Hurry campaign, which first launched in 2013 by inviting fans to visit the metaphorical Island of The Don't Hurry, is now bringing the same mindset to everyday life. Just as Cruzan® doesn't hurry its aging process, the brand encourages fans to slow down and take it all in.

THIS IS THE DON'T HURRY
In a light-hearted but thoughtful way, the new digital campaign, created by Walton Isaacson, shows why it's important not to hurry through life in two 30-second videos and three 15-second pre-roll videos. The campaign will be supported via social media, digital support, public relations and retail extensions.

"If you hurry through life, you could miss something big, and that's what we really want people to take away from the campaign," said Brendan Lynch, Senior Director of Rum & Cordials at Beam Suntory. "We're often so focused on what's in front of us that we miss what's going on around us. It's important to slow down, take the time to enjoy the best things in life, like Cruzan Rum, one sip at a time -- and our fans agree."

SAVOR EVERY SIP
To encourage consumers to adopt The Don't Hurry mindset in their everyday lives, Cruzan recommends starting with a signature cocktail like the Cruzan Life's a Peach, made with its newest flavor -- Cruzan Peach Rum -- along with Cruzan Aged Light Rum and other fresh ingredients.

About Cruzan® Rum
Named for the people of St. Croix (Crucians), Cruzan® Rum is synonymous with the spirit of the island whose unpretentious and authentic lifestyle proves that life -- like our rum -- is more enjoyable when you embrace The Don't Hurry and sit back, relax and take things one sip at a time. The Nelthropp family, who has called St. Croix home for eight generations and runs the distillery to this day, crafts each of its rums with natural ingredients and a five-column distillation process. Cruzan® also touts one of the cleanest-tasting rums in the industry -- a characteristic derived from crafting a spirit with low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the rum.
