Queen Pineapple rum wins gold at Bartender Spirits Awards 2023
Setting a solid foundation for success in the US
In line with maintaining a strong momentum this first half year, we are setting our selves up for success in the US ahead of our launch with Whole Foods Market. After recent successes with our Belux listing with HEMA and nationwide listing of our Honey Rum with Gall & Gall, this is a cherry on the pie before closing of H1 2023. Winning numerous awards throughout European competitions, winning the first US medal is exceptionally special to us.
The aim of the Bartender Spirits Awards is to provide independent and honest reviews for brands targeting the U.S. market. The judging panel consists of some of the most renowned names in the U.S. bar industry, all of them with extensive expertise within the on-premise industry. The result is a relevant and practical source of reference for bartenders, bar managers, bar owners and other industry professionals when making purchasing decisions for their establishments.

Points are allocated to the best-performing spirits based on the following metrics: taste; packaging; and price. Our Queen Pineapple received a smashing total of 95 points, making it top of the gold 2023 class. The judging panel found the following: “Delightful pineapple driven rum with a complex nose of baking spices and tropical fruit.”
Unifying single origin rum and botanicals is a truly unique process and it is making us proud that we are the original botanical rum company, making unique flavours which are being awarded globally.
