Pillars

Take a look at our five pillars that help shape who we are and what we do.

‚Äč

1. Education and Awareness

Our focus is on raising the category of rum through hosting and promoting rum-focused events within Canada and globally.  Through rum education, we hope to create a larger category awareness throughout the spirit and hospitality industries, as well as increase consumer interest locally and globally.

 

2. Diversity, Inclusion & Equality

Those are more than just words for us. They’re the hard-and-fast principles guiding how we build our events, cultivate safe spaces, and build relationships that foster a brand and community that’s the right fit for every person. We have a global and multicultural following and we want to reflect that at our events.

 

3. Sustainability

Our goal is to reduce our footprint on the earth.  We want to ensure we do as much as we can to eliminate single-use plastics and packaging in an effort to be as low-waste as possible. By working with green-focused partners, we will source products that reflect our values and those of our followers.  

 

4. Arts & Culture

Rum is a global spirit and produced in a variety of regions with distinct cultural identities.  In some of these areas, rum is such a big part of the local culture that it’s integrated into the daily lives of locals. We believe in promoting local arts and culture surrounding rum and rum production and strive to showcase these passions with the larger rum community and beyond.

 

5. Community Involvement

We believe in working closely with our communities and supporting where we can. Whether it's engaging or raising funds for local vendors or partnering with organizations that affect positive change in rum producing communities, we will always do our part to help.
