Broken Shed Vodka, Aotearoa New Zealand's award-winning premium vodka known for its smooth, crisp taste and sustainable distillation practices, has solidified its position as the fastest growing vodka brand in the U.S. for the third year in a row. According to data provided by the 2023 Liquor Handbook, Broken Shed had a 66.7% increase in overall case depletion within the country from 2021 to 2022, the highest growth rate in its vodka class.
Building on its continued success, Broken Shed is poised to sell 30,000 cases nationwide in 2023, bolstering its status as the fastest growing vodka brand in the U.S.
"This recognition is a testament to Broken Shed Vodka’s exceptional clean, crisp and smooth flavour that it offers vodka drinkers, thanks to our pure ingredients and sustainable distillation process,” said Paul Criscuolo, chief commercial officer of Broken Shed Vodka. "We are incredibly proud to celebrate another year of significant growth for Broken Shed — and we look forward to bringing a premium taste of New Zealand to more consumers in new markets across the U.S. and around the globe."
“Our dedicated team, along with the support of our distributors and sales partners, has played a vital role in Broken Shed Vodka’s ongoing success,” said Jean-Marie Heins, chief marketing officer for Broken Shed Vodka. "As more consumers opt for clean, additive-free drinks that fit in with their lifestyles we’re proud to offer them a vodka with only three ingredients — spring water, mineral water and whey – all locally sourced in Aotearoa New Zealand."
Broken Shed is currently available in 30 U.S. markets which now includes Florida and Texas - both added in the last year. Broken Shed's top markets are North Carolina, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Globally, Broken Shed is in New Zealand, Australia and Samoa.
Looking ahead, Broken Shed Vodka will amplify its marketing efforts through a new upcoming campaign.
