Mount Gay Rum celebrates 310th anniversary with national sweepstakes
Pedro Jordan, James Norris, Anderson Barker and Romel Stuart had 310 reasons to smile this week after they were announced as winners in Mount Gay Rum’s 310 Sweepstakes promotion, an ongoing celebration that commemorates the 310th anniversary of the world’s oldest rum.
Jordan walked away with a Samsung Galaxy SIII smartphone, compliments Digicel; Norris a 750ml bottle of Mount Gay Extra Old; Barker a 750ml bottle of Mount Gay Eclipse Silver; and Stuart a $40 Digicel top-up.
“Very few companies are able to reach a milestone such as this, so this promotion is really a reward for those consumers who have been loyal to Mount Gay Rum over the years,” said Straughn, noting that several customers had already been awarded during the national sweepstake.
“Our continued success over the past three centuries has been firmly rooted in an ethos of refinement, dedication, excellence and teamwork. We are a proud of what the brand has achieved and we are equally satisfied with what the brand stands for today. It continues to distinguish itself around the globe and this is a direct result of the company’s foresight and dedication towards the production of one of the world’s finest rums.”
The winners echoed Straughn’s sentiments and offered their opinion about what they collectively termed was their “drink of choice“.
“Extra Old is my undisputed favourite,” said Jordan, who was speaking on behalf of the group. “I can drink it straight or with a mixer, it doesn’t matter to me. Once its Mount Gay, it will be in my glass.”
Digicel’s Shakida Grant said the telecommunications company was pleased to present the market-leading Samsung Gallaxy SIII as a weekly prize for the ongoing competition.
“The SIII has been touted as a technical triumph, so we are thrilled to be able to offer it as a prize for this competition,” she said.
Persons can enter the national sweepstake by dropping completed entry forms, available from participating retailers island-wide, along with three caps of any size Mount Gay Rum product – Eclipse, Eclipse Silver, Eclipse Black, Extra Old and 1703 – into the drop boxes provided.
