Robot Food’s Fifth Anniversary Oak Aged Rum

1_1_14_RFAnniversayGift_1
Robot Food arrived at the peak of the global recession. Five years later, they’re toasting success with their very own anniversary rum. Call it what you want – the Global Recession, the Economic Downturn, the Credit Crunch – five years ago, Robot Food were all up to their necks in it. But it wasn’t all bad. January 1 2009 was the time Robot Food made their entrance.

“Even though creative agencies were disappearing all over the globe, we knew it was the right time to set up. Shrinking budgets meant more scrutiny on the quality of output, which opened the playing field to a streamlined, hands-on team willing to work hard and push creative boundaries. To paraphrase John Galliano, it was a credit crunch not a creative crunch.”

Simon Forster, Creative Director

To celebrate these five fantastic years, the agency has had special, limited edition rum bottled, with a label that speaks of ‘a depth and complexity far beyond its years.’ Each bottle has been hand numbered and finished with a branded wax seal. Why rum?

“Rum fuelled many an evening’s conversation as we were setting the business up, so it felt apt. To mark the occasion, we chose a very special pale gold sipping rum.”

Mike Shaw, Client Director

Migrant Malt Scotch Whiskey

12_03_13_migrant_1

In early 2013, designer, Chad Michael was contacted by the Trautwein Distillery Company to help them develop their new brand “Migrant”. Trautwein Distillery Company is a German based company who wanted to develop a brand based on their late grandfather, Ken Trautwein, who immigrated to the U.S. in the 1930’s . The solution was to use visual cues from his actual passport, passage, and the rawness that period reflected. The whiskey itself is based on a simple, home whiskey recipe Ken Trautwein concocted decades ago.

Beautifully done.
