Ubevco has added a fifth brand to its international collection of beers. From the end of the year it is taking over distribution of Pilsner Urquell from the brand's own UK company. The Czech Pilsner will join Sol and Dos Equis from Mexico, Castle from South Africa, and Tiger from Singapore in the Ubevco portfolio. The company is also the UK distributor of Red Bull. This addition to its range is seen as justification for a decision a year ago to create separate beer and soft drinks sales forces. Ubevco turns over £100m and has 110 sales staff. South African Breweries purchased a controlling interest in Pilsner Urquell last October and is investing in the brand through marketing and distribution initiatives. {{DRINKS }}
