Join us in welcoming Jonny Croft, owner of Cargo Cult Spiced Rum to Hains & Co for a drink and chat about this fantastic rum.

All are welcome.

Cargo Cult's story begins in the South Pacific during World War II. Thousands of American GIs suddenly descended on isolated island chains in Melanesia and Polynesia, arriving by ship and aircraft bearing unimaginable riches: crates of magical foodstuffs that never spoiled, tents, jeeps, cigarettes, and inconceivable power sources. The vast amounts of cargo meant drastic changes to the lifestyle of the islanders, many of whom had never seen outsiders before.

Just as abruptly the troops departed, leaving only rusted Jeeps, crumpled beer cans, and the memory of tinned meat.
To the astonished eyes of the islanders, this was a miraculous occurrence and they yearned for the return of abundance.
The islanders built aircraft from palm trees, cleared landing strips and lit fires at night to summons back these Visitors and their legendary leader, a man who has gone by many names and appearances.

They formed Cargo Cults that on some isolated islands endure, where they patiently wait for the leader's return with ships and planes bearing the CARGO.
While the glorious day that the mythical leader reappears bearing his unimaginable wealth is yet to arrive, the wait is over to experience something new - a unique small batch Spiced Rum from the South Pacific.

Rich volcanic soil, unpolluted rain water and sundrenched sugarcane from the remote Ramu River Valley (PNG) and Fiji produce a naturally pure rum of unparalleled quality. Aged under intense tropical heat and blended with artisinal care using natural flavours and spices to weave a unique taste and perfect aromatic balance.
