Working within retained budget, we had to ensure underdog INTU grabbed attention away from market leader Quooker - by creating a news story with widespread talkability.

Positioning INTU Boiling Water Taps as the saviour of the proper cuppa – specifically for those in hard water areas, by revealing the ‘right’ way to make a cuppa. We identified Professor Alan Mackie at Leeds University as a foremost expert in flavour – and enlisted him to settle the age old debate – milk in first or last? In a video we filmed in his lab, he explained the science behind how adding milk at the start of the process improves taste by locking in compounds. By combining this with INTU’s key messaging around how a hot water tap makes preparing the perfect brew a doddle – we had a compelling proposition that we knew would spark a national conversation.

Breaking the story on The Sun online, a national media sell in followed. In other spaces, the story exploded, with a segment dedicated to the story on Good Morning Britain broadcast and later shared on Twitter. This, sparked the debate on social media with Piers Morgan wading into proceedings.
