The Jack Daniel distillery loves nothing more than hosting friends at their installations. But for those that can’t make the trip to Lynchburg, they wanted to create a way that people could experience what their town and distillery have to offer, providing a virtual experience that would get users about as close to Jack as one can get without an official tour.
The Jack Daniel Distillery’s AR app offers a virtual tour of the distillery, allowing users to take a closer look at the whiskey-making process, and learn stories about the man himself—Mr. Jack Daniel.
Thirty days after the official global Jack Daniel’s AR Experience app launch, 30.000+ iOS and Android users watched over 110,000 ‘Jack Stories’ AR experiences with an average of 5:42 minutes of total session time per user. The AR Experience is attracting a lot of international news coverage and positive user response.
The AR experience is divided into three unique parts, each designed with the look and feel of hand-crafted models and integrate real-time, environmental lighting and textures. The first experience transforms the front label of the bottle into a miniature version of the Jack Daniel Distillery. The second walks step by step through the process of making Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and the third shares stories of the man himself, Jack Daniel.”
“In today’s world, it’s important for us to reach fans and consumers where they are. That means sharing content that’s unique, interesting and relevant through a variety of digital mediums…This new AR experience is taking our brand storytelling to the next level .”
