Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail is currently hosting the ‘Havana Night Experience’ by Havana Club 7 exclusively at London Heathrow Airport. The pop-up activation has been in place in Terminal 5 since 5 July and draws to a close on 1 August; we took our virtual reality (VR) cameras down to the World Duty Free store in which is sits for a closer look.

[Note: The Moodie Davitt Report recently partnered with Mondelez World Travel Retail for the launch of an exciting new addition to its multimedia portfolio – Moodie Davitt Virtual Reality.]

To transport guests to Havana, the pop-up space is dressed in exotic plants and features colourful stained glass windows. It is decorated with stations of premium local produce such as fresh fruit and coffee beans. The experience continues with a festive soundscape and the aromas of rum filling the air to immerse travellers in a Havana night.

Visitors to the pop-up receive complimentary tastings of Havana Club 7  and can learn about the ‘continuous ageing’ process. Consumers will also have the chance to choose from one of four limited edition ‘Essences of Cuba’ – a range of natural flavourings to bring out specific flavours found in the rum. The Essences are offered as a gift with any purchase of Havana Club 7 to create a Havana Club 7 Old Fashioned at home.
