Ballantine’s have uncovered a surprising fact – we have NO Whisky Emoji!
If you don’t know what an Emoji is, it’s a little pictograph, the commonest being smiley faces. It appears on the internet everywhere and is most commonly used to highlight phone messages.
The Emoji range has expanded to include all manner of images: fruit, people, feet – you name it.
Except for one …
Ballantine’s realised that beer drinkers have been able to share with their friends the imminent enjoyment of a pint using the beer emoji.
Wine lovers, cocktail fans and even martini enthusiasts have been able to spruce up their texts about their favourite tipples with a selection of emojis.
But why is there no whisky emoji available to celebrate their favourite Scotch?
This inequality has gone on for too long, so Ballantine’s is rallying support from whisky lovers around the world to make the #WhiskyEmoji a reality!
The #WhiskyEmoji movement is gathering momentum online, but we still need your help to get this created.
If we can garner enough support, we will put the case to the makers of emojis, Unicode, that whisky drinkers need a whisky emoji in their lives.
Together, we can make this happen.
If you’re a whisky fan (which of course, you all are) and if you believe in the freedom of expression, please show your support on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #WhiskyEmoji #StayTrue.
