While we all like an award winning rum, it seems one rum company is going from strength to strength picking up more awards than a good looking bloke at a singles night.
R. St Barth has recently been awarded the triple bronze for its rhum range at the International Spirits Challenge 2012 (ISC).
The competition is founded on a rigorous and independent judging process, which serves to encourage the high calibre of spirits entered into the competition each year.
Receiving more than 1,000 entries from nearly 70 countries worldwide makes the ISC a truly global competition.
It is supported by most of the world’s leading spirits producers as the international standard for quality and excellence.
Owners Severine and Mikael Silvestre are delighted with the outcome:
‘To be winning awards after our first year of operation is overwhelming. We knew we had a product of exceptional quality, but to receive that acknowledgement from the industry is such a testament to our team – we are so proud. These awards sit well alongside our gold medal for the blanc rhum from the Rum XP in Miami this year.’
The range of the boutique agricole rhums, launched in March 2011, consists of a blanc rhum, a 4-year old amber, and 12-year old aged variety.
R. St Barth has distribution in France, the Caribbean, Sweden and the US, and is actively seeking distribution in the UK. If you want to find out more check out www.rhumstbarth.com
