Neptune Rum and Duty Free Global aim to “drive the rum category forward” with GTR partnership

Neptune Rum has signed an agreement with Duty Free Global for global travel retail.

Duty Free Global will distribute the award-winning family-owned Barbados rum in global travel retail globally.

Neptune is a blend of 3, 5 and 8 year old Rum, aged in bourbon oak casks, and created in a mix of pot and column stills.

     “We are really delighted to be working with the team at Neptune Rum in the global travel retail channel. We instantly loved the whole brand concept, the quality of the award-winning Rum and the great CSR element and we firmly believe that it will be a very big success with our operator partners,” says Barry Geoghegan, Founder Duty Free Global.

     “The whole concept of guarding the ocean of plastic and ‘Paying Neptune his due’ will resonate with our operator partners and the traveling passengers, many of whom have actively been involved with their own local projects cleaning up beaches and coastlines in their own countries,” continues Geoghegan.

Trevor Moore, Chief Operating Officer at Neptune says “We are delighted to work in partnership with DFG to bring a truly exceptional Rum to the travel retail sector and help drive the Rum category forward with quality innovation and a strong, consumer-centric brand message.

“Neptune has already established itself as a World class Rum and we are ready to offer Neptune to the world of travel,” says Moore.
