BlackSquare Inc. announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership with Beam Suntory. Beam Suntory has maintained its identity as a world leader in premium spirits through an ongoing dedication to innovation and a pioneering outlook that extends to both its business practices and its spirits.
This collaboration will allow Beam Suntory to continue innovating with the added advantage of BlackSquare’s expertise.

With a data-forward approach and integrations with BlackSquare’s proprietary Insight data platform, BlackSquare will support Beam Suntory’s digital marketing and customer acquisition efforts and further the reach of the Laphroaig brand, all while ensuring customers have an exceptional end-to-end DTC experience.
BlackSquare CEO Matthew Protti said of this new endeavor, “The BlackSquare team is looking forward to collaborating with Beam Suntory on their vision for their brand’s digital presence, e-commerce website, and end-to-end DTC journey. We anticipate tremendous growth in this channel in the future as consumers all over the world continue to seek ways to engage directly with favored brands.”

BlackSquare’s industry experience and technical know-how will ensure a best-in-class digital DTC experience for our engaged customers, and provide a solid foundation for the future growth of our brand,” said Lukas Hinke, D2C eBusiness Development Manager for Beam Suntory.
