Sponsor Spotlight – Barti Rum

Ahoy there, me hearties! We have some exciting news for all of you rum guzzlers out there. We are ecstatic to announce that this year, Barti Ddu Rum, are one of our official sponsors for our 2019 awards ceremony!

Over the next few years, rum is pegged to become the drink of choice for most people, with new rums popping up on the market every day. Barti Rum is definitely one of these rums to watch (but is much better to drink!)   

Although you may not have heard of the Pembrokeshire based rum company before, as it was only created in the summer of 2017 by Jonathan Williams, the company has gone from strength to strength in past couple of months. Most recently, John Lewis have announced that they will be placing the dark rum on their shelves as part of their Nine-Strong spirit range.

But what makes their rum unique? Their Caribbean rum is bursting with flavours like vanilla, clove and orange, but is also made with Laver Seaweed, which is handpicked from the beaches in Pembrokeshire. Although you may think that seaweed is a strange ingredient to add to rum, the seaweed’s smooth flavour is what makes the rum so unique and tasteful. Don’t just take our word for it though, come and try it for yourself! Upon entry to our awards ceremony, you will receive a cocktail made with Barti Rum.  

You can read more about their rum and the notorious pirate, Barti Ddu that inspired their rum here.

So, come down and celebrate Cardiff’s music scene with us and raise a glass to Barti Rum!
