  • Reaching the finish line!
    Finally! First Rum Sharks went through the customs procedures and tax labels were applied. Now they are waiting in UPB storehouse for the label application. Cone-shaped bottles make the label application impossible so each label has to be applied by hand.  We won´t stop now. The employees of UPB storehouse are very skillful and it… Read More »Reaching the finish line!

  • When things go (not that) well
    A bit too little information about the truck full of our rum did not make us nervous as we assumed it must be stuck somewhere at the Czech borders around Christmas time.  Well, we should have been nervous.

  • We are changing the graphics
    A Rum Shark team has expressed an opinion that the graphics we have approved are not representative enough. So we have decided to show our bottle labels to about a hundred potential customers.  Frankly, the response has been rather lukewarm. We will give a shot to another graphic designer. Let´s hope we will all find… Read More »We are changing the graphics
