The Drum covers the recent repackaging of Providencia Rum – “Breeze Creative has unveiled its newly minted rum packaging for Mayfair Brands to dovetail with the launch of a new aged golden rum. Providencia is named in honour of the Spanish ship which was wrecked after hitting a reef off the coast of Florida in 1878, spilling its load of 20,000 coconuts, rum, wine and cigars into the briny.”
“The Bundaberg Distilling Company will release its new Dark Oak premium rum made with hand-picked rum reserves in charred oak barrels at the weekend.” Gladstone Observer has the full story.
