The Duppy Share
The Duppy Share is a perfectly balanced unique blend of premium rums from the beautiful Worthy Park estate in Jamaica and the prestigious Foursquare Distillery in Barbados. These are very contrasting island styles, a fiery Jamaican rum and a smooth Barbadian rum makes the Duppy Share the perfect partner for punch and other rum cocktails.
The Duppy Share is trying to bring the fun, energy and excitement that we ALL associate with the Caribbean to a rum category completely void of all of this. Caribbean legend has it that the dark duppy spirits swoop between the islands stealing the best share of the rum. Spirit masters, skilled in the fine art of blending, the duppies take only the best, this is The Duppy Share.

KPPR have been in the swing of festival season this summer, after being appointed to manage all publicity engagements for actor Joe Thomas, around his lead role in summer comedy film The Festival. KPPR worked alongside the film’s producers to put in place an extensive schedule of interviews for Joe in the run up to the film’s release (14th August), including Channel 4’s ‘The Last Leg’ and ‘Sunday Brunch’, BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright, The Times and MTV.com.
Best known for his role as Simon Cooper in multi-award-winning TV series The Inbetweeners, Joe’s lead role in The Festival is as newly-single Nick, whose friend decides that a post-graduation festival is the perfect solution to cheer him up after a messy, and very public, break-up.
With 4*s from Metro and NME, reviews have called it ‘consistently hilarious’ and ‘full of belly laughs’. The Festival is in cinemas now!
