Commenting on the appointment, Shweta Jain, head of marketing, William Grant & Sons, says, "It's an exciting time for us as we expand our India footprint and William Grant & Sons India is excited to have Thinkstr on board as its creative development agency for a through-the-line brand activation led by digital."

Glenfiddich is a single malt whisky, owned and produced by William Grant & Sons Distillers, an independent family-owned company founded by William Grant in 1887, and still controlled by the fifth generation of the family. The company distils some of the world's leading brands of Scotch whisky, including Glenfiddich, The Balvenie single malt, Grant's, as well as other selected spirits, including Hendrick's Gin, Sailor Jerry, and Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey.

In January 2016, Satbir Singh, former chief creative officer of FCB Ulka, launched an advertising agency christened 'Thinkstr'. Singh describes his solo venture as "ideas for a digital world". Thinkstr, which created the launch campaign for the government's ambitious Startup India project in its first month, is not a digital agency, but digital will be at the core of its work, while using different mediums as well. The idea is to allow brands to strike a conversation with an audience that is embracing digital.
