Wimbledon is Now the Official Tennis of Sipsmith Gin

The master puppet team of maker Andy Ghent and animator Andy Biddle join Biscuit director Jeff Low to reprise the stop-motion charm of Mr. Swan and his undentable ego for Ogilvy and Sipsmith Gin’s partnership with Wimbledon.

Mr. Swan, voiced by English comedian Julian Barratt, debuted for the brand back in 2019 with this spot.
