According to Kathy Parker, svp for Haig Club, "Working with partners like David Beckham and Simon Fuller has brought a new perspective to what we do, helping us to break new ground. Both David and Simon are renowned for shaking up every sector in which they work and this has been no exception. We believe that people around the world are going to love what we've created together - we can't wait for them to try it."

The launch spot shows Beckham hosting a party attend by Victoria, Fuller and other friends. "This is a very special night as we launch a collaboration with Diageo a wonderfully whiskey, Haig Club. Haig Club is designed to be different."
