David & Valeriia..

Their shared passion and experience have led to something remarkable. With David's solid knowledge and Valeriia's skill in organizing and leading projects, they have together taken the step to arrange not just one, but several beverage festivals.

Their respective backgrounds and expertise complement each other beautifully. David, with his 20 years in the food and beverage industry, has always had a love for exploring new flavors and experiences. Meanwhile, Valeriia, with her experience as a project manager, has the ability to make everything fall into place in an organized and smooth manner.

So when they decided to organize Sweden's first Gin Only Festival and the country's very first Rum Festival, they did it with humility and a desire to create something special for people to enjoy. It's not just about them, it's about sharing their passion with others and creating memories that last forever.

Anton Öberg, cask manager at Plantation Rum for the past year, has over seven years of experience in the beverage industry. Previously, he has worked in selling whisky casks and as an export manager. Anton finds it exciting to work with a new product for one of the coolest spirit companies in the world. His favorite rum is the one from Fiji. "I'm looking forward to showing you Barge 166 and the tastings during these days, hope to see you in Paris!" //Anton


Plantation Rum is one of the brightest shining stars in the rum world and is known for its work in constantly renewing its expression of rum.


They are renowned worldwide as one of the most innovative producers, with their double-aged rum from primarily Barbados being a standout.


Created by Alexandre Gabriel, Master Distiller, the brand has grown significantly since the 1990s to be nearly cult-like among bartenders for its ability to bring out the rum's origin, terroir, and the character of the barrels. They have created and custom-built the barge Barge 166 where they store 30-liter barrels for private collectors.
