The Plantation Rum Cup is back for 2022 and open to all New Zealand bar teams

The Plantation Rum Cup is back in 2022 and is open to everyone in the hospitality industry – from bartenders to bar backs and hosts – any bar team excelling in creating memorable experiences.

The winning team will walk away with the Plantation Rum Cup trophy and a team trip to Barbados to visit the West Indies Rum Distillery.

To enter the Plantation Rum Cup, each venue must have two or three team members, comprising at least one bartender and one team member from another area of the venue.

Together, this team must feature a Plantation Rum cocktail in their venue, register their participation online, and promote the drink for at least five weeks.
