LYMM-based communications agency, The SPA Group, has won the Best Spirit Sector Marketing Agency in the 2017 Wine and Spirit Awards.
This is in recognition of the European re-launch of Black Death Vodka in the last couple of years, which SPA’s owner, Simon Plumb, first worked on in the late 1990’s, and was then re-appointed to work on again in 2015.
‘I started my career as the brand manager for Vladivar Vodka, the Wodka from Varrington, the Greatest Wodka in the Vorld! I learned so much when I worked on Vladivar and it has stayed with me, informing everything I now do from a marketing perspective,’ commented Simon.
‘I could not have asked for a better start to my marketing and PR career so feel very fortunate,’ he added. ‘Life sometimes gives you a leg-up and everyone deserves a break. That was mine!’
