Cabal Rum unites explorers and scientists in a new era of discovery | As the new official partner of the Explorers Club Great Britain and Ireland Chapter, Cabal Rum continues its pioneering approach of bringing together like-minded people to create incredible results.

Together, Cabal and The Explorers Club will be hosting a wide range of events and strategic exploration initiatives, starting with a special evening event on board HQS Wellington in London on 27th November, with the aim of promoting the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences.

Claire Kinloch, CEO of Edinburgh based Harpalion Spirits, said: “We are thrilled to be working with such an inspiring partner as part of our overarching strategy. Cabal rum has been built on an ethos of truth, taste and togetherness, with collaboration and exploration wholly embedded in our product development process and we have the utmost respect for the legacy of the rum industry and the environment in which we operate. The partnership will provide our other partners, customers and consumers with the opportunity to engage, learn and benefit from the work we will do together, adding value to what we collectively strive to offer and contribute to the sector, society and the planet.”

The Great Britain and Ireland Chapter regionally represents the global organisation, The Explorers Club, which was founded in New York City in 1904.  Chapters of The Explorers Club can be found throughout the world creating individual communities of like-minded people from many different disciplines of exploration.

Patrons in the UK include Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Sir Chris Bonington, Rory Golden, Alexandra Shackleton, Felicity Aston, Levison Wood, Rod McDonald, Sir David Kim Hempleman-Adams, Kenton Cool, Alicia Colson and Neville Shulman.
