About us

The Sustainable Rum Summit (SRS) is an affiliate from The Rum Barrel company, The Netherlands. The Rum Barrel is a boutique advisory firm and broker for craft distillers. Focus is on support in access to (new) markets and access to growth capital.

We aim to explore, discuss and share new horizons for a sustainable rum industry – from the grass to the glass.

SRS brings together entrepreneurs (craft distillers),  industry leaders, policymakers and researchers from around the world to assess what businesses in particular—but also governments, banks and NGOs—can do to rise to the challenge and meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The summit is more than static online platform. We aim to host a community, where you can network, gain insights through available content (tools, case studies, research papers) and engage in other summit webinars deep-diving into specific topics.
