As the region’s leading beverages company, Paradise Beverages has been sponsoring golf in Fiji for over 20 years

Paradise Beverages has launched a new signature cocktail, the ‘VJ Sling’, for the 2018 Fiji International Golf Tournament, which tees off on July 31 at the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort in Natadola.

Created to celebrate Fiji’s biggest golf hero and tournament fan favourite, VJ Singh, the ‘VJ Sling’ blends Rum Co of Fiji’s award-winning eight-year-old Ratu Signature Rum Liqueur and Bati Spiced Rum, with the zing of ginger and fresh lime perfectly complementing the complexity of charred oak and rich vanilla and coconut flavours from the local rums.

General manager of marketing and new product development Rowena Taito said as the region’s leading beverages company, Paradise Beverages has been sponsoring golf in Fiji for over 20 years.

“The Fiji International is a great platform to showcase our fantastic brands to the world.

“The ‘VJ Sling’ is the perfect way for golf fans to enjoy our world-class premium rum range, while beer lovers can also enjoy Fiji’s favourite Fiji Gold, which we’re proud to say is this year’s official beer.”

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa director of dining and entertainment Craig Wood said: “It’s exciting that we get to showcase this cocktail with Rum Co of Fiji.

“I like the play on words and feel the Fijian rum with ginger and lime is definitely going to be a hit!”

His sentiments were echoed by director of commercial for the Fiji International presented by Fiji Airways Matt Porm, who added: “This is yet another fantastic example of our tournament partners working together to create a unique, year round activation and am looking forward to toasting our five- year partnership with Mr Taito and the Paradise Beverages team over a ‘VJ Sling’!”

The ‘VJ Sling’, along with the full range of Rum Co of Fiji rums and liqueurs, will be served throughout tournament week at the Fiji International.
