2023 Rum & Rosé Recap

The long-awaited return of Cruzan Rum & Rosé Experience in 2023 was better than anyone could have ever expected! Hosted by Cruzan Foodie on the picturesque grounds of St. George Village Botanical Gardens, the signature pink and white summer affair featured bottomless specialty cocktails and pink rosé wines, expertly paired tastings, live entertainment and bonus surprises that took all attendees by surprise! Sponsored by CC1 Virgin Islands alongside Cruzan Rum, Mionetto, Kim Crawford, Mount Gay Rum and other notable spirit brands, this premium all-inclusive event was a labor of love after the extended hiatus due to you-know-what.

Thanks to our various sponsors, a number of prizes were won throughout the night. Guests were given a raffle ticket upon entry to the event with the option to purchase additional tickets to increase their chances of winning. All proceeds from raffle sales are donated to the Patrick & Amelia Williams Opportunity Fund – a scholarship established through St. Croix Foundation in honor of Anquanette’s grandparents to support first-generation Crucians attending college.
