Hattiers is certified as the UK's first B Corp Rum, and only the second in the world!
We are proud to announce that we join over 3,500 companies across 74 countries, to become the United Kingdom's first B Corp Rum.
Recent attention on the drinks industry movement towards sustainability makes Hattiers’ B Corp certification a notable step, and signals a shift towards greater accountability and transparency in the sector.
Executive Director of B Lab UK, Chris Turner, says “We are delighted to welcome Hattiers to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates, who believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Hattiers is going to be a significant addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward”.
Hattiers’ founder, Philip Everett-Lyons, said; “The landscape of business is changing, and in this time of sustained environmental and social crisis, no business can afford to ignore the effects of its products and operations. From day one we’ve always stood for a wider purpose and the days are long gone when a business can simply ask its employees to leave their values and humanity at home. It is for that reason that we could not be prouder that Hattiers Rum joins the cohort of likeminded businesses, taking the ‘quadruple bottom line’ approach of, People, Planet, Profit and Purpose, using business for a force for good.”
