From their offices in Christchurch, New Zealand and Chicago, TZO and SCC will develop a refreshed brand identity and roll out a number of initiatives to support Broken Shed Vodka’s global growth and take the “world’s most unique vodka” to the next level in the US, Canada and New Zealand.
This newly formed strategic partnership includes creative, digital marketing, strategy, website and social content development and paid media.
TimeZoneOne ceo Daniel Thomas said: “We are honoured to partner with New Zealand’s Broken Shed Vodka to grow its presence and tell its uniquely New Zealand story on a global scale. We’ve spent nearly three decades marketing New Zealand brands in North America, telling their stories and supporting their growth strategies.”
Broken Shed selected the integrated agency team of TZO and SCC not only for their digital marketing and creative capabilities but also the team’s ability to bring New Zealand authenticity to the brand globally.
CMO Jean-Marie Heins said: “To have an agency partnership with TimeZoneOne and SCC that not only specialises in beverage but is located in our brand’s home market of New Zealand, is of great value to our business success. We now have global creative teams that operate in our core markets to amplify our company’s sales ambassadors’ growth objectives and can help us grow Broken Shed Vodka to become Americans’ favourite New Zealand vodka.”
SCC ceo Richard McDonald said: “We are excited to be jointly appointed to help take New Zealand’s Broken Shed Vodka marketing to the next level. TZO and SCC joined forces last year to form two independent agency powerhouses that are both creative and digital at the core of what we do and we will play to our collective strengths to ensure Broken Shed becomes a breakthrough brand.”
Jean-Marie Heins: “Broken Shed is born out of New Zealand and sustainably uses the country’s pristine natural resources to produce a vodka with only two ingredients: whey distillate and a special blend of mineral and spring waters, creating a unique taste.”
