PART ONE OF THE SEPTEMBER
BIG NEWS THRILL-OGY..

Hard to imagine that we’ve only just started 18 months ago, and its been barely 12 since we created a Union with all those amazing investors during the crowdfunding campaign… Since then, pretty much every day has been like riding a roller coaster, taking the phrase “never a dull moment” a bit to literally. Now it’s time to put down the bottles, slow down for a second, and share some of things we’ve been working… September 2018 is going to be a special one with 3 MASSIVE game changers… It’s why I decided to divide the joy in 3 BIG updates… like most good trilogies we’re building momentum for the final big bang…

Scroll down for part one…

UNION IN THE KITCHEN

As its out ambition to reach the full flavour potential of rum, we’re extremely proud to have organized our first Union in the Kitchen event early August. By bringing together chefs from one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam (Restaurant C), and top bartenders from 4 of the best bars in Amsterdam we managed to whip up an incredible 4-course food and cocktail pairing.

THE UNION POP-UP COCKTAIL BAR

Serving anything from Long Summer Serves, or cocktails, we’re excited to  start getting the Union Bar moving.

CHEEKY SILVER MEDAL

Although there is an abundance of spirit competitions and we’ve had a couple of medals in the past, we’re truly proud on this one. By putting our long summer serves to the test, we came out clean on the other side. With an outstanding rating for Union 55 mixed with Ginger Beer we’re happy we got some credit for a serve we hold dear.

Cliff-hangers usually wait for the end, but what’s coming is BIG! (and it’s not just winter) We’ve posted a few hints on what’s happening before, but we will slowly start revealing a game changer changing the face of rum forever…
