Cricket West Indies (CWI) is partnering with The Duppy Share Caribbean Rum as its new Official Rum Partner in the United Kingdom for the duration of the Sandals West Indies Tour of England 2020. The partnership will engage fans to choose and vote for the West Indies player of the match following each of the #RaiseTheBat Test matches as West Indies defend the Wisden Trophy in three Test matches against England.
West Indies fans will be able to vote on the @windiescricket Twitter page for their #MeninMaroon player of the match with the fans’ chosen player receiving an exclusive Duppy Share rum pack featuring a personalized bottle. West Indies fans who purchase a bottle of The Duppy Share through the special promotional link will have the chance of winning a Test match shirt signed by the West Indies squad from this historic, bio-secure, behind-closed-doors Series.
The Duppy Share is the UK’s fastest growing rum brand bringing the energy and sense of fun of the Caribbean to life. The rum is a perfect blend of a fiery, punchy Jamaican three-year-old rum from Worthy Park distillery and a smooth, oaky five-year-old rum from Barbados’s Foursquare distillery.
CWI Commercial Director, Dominic Warne stated: “CWI is always excited to partner with brands that have an authentic Caribbean story. Working with The Duppy Share and our fast-growing social channels is a great way to give West Indies fans the opportunity to choose and celebrate their player of the match.”
The Duppy Share Founder, George Frost said: “The Duppy Share could not be more proud and excited by this relationship. Every drop of The Duppy Share rum is inspired by the amazing energy, excitement and fun of the Caribbean – and nowhere is this more evident than in the mighty West Indies cricket team.”
The fans’ player of the match polls will start following the conclusion of each of the three Tests in the #raisethebat Series.
The first Test Match at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, concludes today, July 12. The West Indies will then travel from Southampton to Manchester on the July 13 for the second Test, starting July 16.
