Red Bull calls in John Doe to launch three drinks in UK

Red Bull has drafted John Doe to launch three drinks in the UK.

Red Bull has drafted John Doe to launch three drinks in the UK.

The agency secured the PR launch project brief following a competitive pitch process.

The appointment comes ahead of the global energy drinks company introducing the blueberry, cranberry, and lime flavors - known as the blue, red, and silver editions - early next year.

An agency source commented that “Red Bull has a lot of loyal fans, but equally there are a lot of people who don't like the taste - this is about targeting them.”

Red Bull and John Doe both declined to comment.

John Doe expanded to the US market in October with coffee brand Illy Caffe as its launch client in North America, one of a handful of UK-based shops to move into the New York market in recent months.

The Wyndham Hotel Group's Dream Hotels brand also selected John Doe as its global lifestyle PR partner following a competitive pitch earlier this month.
