Story-based innovation that set the bar in the category
While many brands had tried to capture the Australian sensibility within the wine category, none had truly mined the authentic source of Australia’s spirit and appeal. We knew the wine-consumption habits of millennial drinkers were changing. So we built the brand to tap into their search for authenticity, exploration, and social currency.
The naming, packaging design, and brand narrative were chosen to pay tribute to Australia’s rough-and-tumble origins, while maintaining a modern sensibility. The evocative lore and compelling narrative have helped make 19 Crimes one of the most successful brand launches and valuable brand franchises in the beverage category.
The brand narrative provided the conceptual platform for Treasury Wine Estates and other agency partners to develop retail activations, content, and line extensions—including the brand film and augmented reality app highlighted below.
