Cockburnís has launched a £1.5 million ad campaign designed to boost growth in the burgeoning port category.

Nielsen figures show port is up 4% in value (year to August 18) and Cockburnís Special Reserve is among the best-performing brands Ė up 24%.

The new ad features the team that makes Cockburnís in Porto and shows them enjoying bottles of port.

There are few companies left who continue to invest in Port, but my family and I are absolutely convinced that there is a great future for this, the greatest of all fortified wines.Ē
