The Northern PR agency is making a name for itself in the beverage industry

Prohibition is continuing to grow its FMCG client base after being appointed by the UK’s leading independent drinks expert, Global Brands.

With a wide-ranging portfolio featuring well-known beverage brands, including VK, Franklin & Sons, Hooch, All Shook Up and Shake Baby Shake, Global Brands sought an agile and experienced agency capable of executing a comprehensive, multi-brand PR strategy to help drive forward its ambitious growth plans.

Following a competitive pitch process, the Leeds based PR agency has been appointed to deliver strategic press office activity and execute creative campaigns; at a corporate group and sub-brand level, to reinforce brand positioning and drive international awareness.
