Bringing Hidden Treasure to Life: Papa’s Pilar® Lost Cask Rum

Our friends at Papa’s Pilar® Rum asked us to help bring their limited edition rum to life with packaging that would reflect the story and essence of the brand. Papa’s Pilar® Rum is an ultra-premium, artisan-crafted rum inspired by Ernest “Papa” Hemingway. Papa was an author, explorer, storyteller, conservationist, bon vivant and Key West local, who is celebrated for what he was not: a spectator.

The Task

Just as Ernest Hemingway rediscovered a trunk full of his writings at the Hotel Ritz in Paris, Papa’s Pilar uncovered 3 bourbon barrels resting with their Blonde rum for over 3 years. They turned the discovery into a limited release rum, exclusively available at their Brand Home at the Papa’s Pilar Distillery in Key West and named the “Lost Cask Limited Edition.” Millennium was tasked with creating a finishing touch for the Lost Cask Rum packaging as unique and refined as Hemingway himself. The challenge was to create packaging that would be special, match the rest of the brand, all while having it done in time for a special event in honor of Hemingway’s birthday.Continue Reading »

So, what does this mean? Well, in layman’s terms, it means conversions don’t necessarily come from one place, action, occurrence, or marketing effort. Conversions are a result of consumers interacting with various stages of what we call the Customer Journey, and attribution is how we connect the dots.Continue Reading »
