Rums of Barbados initiative to enter phase two
The first phase of the Rums of Barbados Expansion programme is now complete.
Officials today installed the official Rums of Barbados seal on three rum shops as they traveled to Pug’s Bar in Charnocks, Christ Church; Island Pot in Government Hill, St Michael; and Paul’s Place, Halls Village #2, St James.
“It’s a way of helping to stimulate economic development and increase sales and that can only happen if we make it known and remind Barbadians of what a wonderful product we have,” said Minister of Industry, International Business, and Commerce, Donville Inniss.
The bus tour featured tasting of rum produced by Mount Gay Distilleries, West Indies Rum Distillery and St Nicholas Abbey.
“This is the final segment of this phase and we’ve been able to accomplish everything that we’d set out to do. There’s only one other thing that we need to do and it may very well involve going to hotel bars and hotel restaurants and so,” explained Humphrey Broome, business development officer at the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation.
