Antigua Distillery Limited Pledges Continued Support of Antigua’s Carnival


Wednesday 19th June 2019 (St. John's, Antigua)... On Wednesday 19th June,
Minister with responsibility for National Festivals, Honourable Daryll Matthew shook hands with Kevin
Alexander, Caribbean Sales and Marketing Representative of Antigua Distillery Ltd., showing appreciation for
the company's continued effort to support Antigua's Carnival.

As a proud partner of the Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission (ABFC), Alexander announced that this
year, the company opted to sponsor Antigua's Carnival with three of the brands under its portfolio. As a result,
three events during the festivities have been rebranded. These include English Harbour Rum T-shirt Mas, OASIS
Water Junior Carnival and Cavalier Rum Carnival Monday.

In addition to this, as a boost to further promote Antigua's Carnival, the company also engaged in the production
of Antigua Carnival labels for its OASIS 350ml and 650ml water bottles, which are currently in distribution
throughout the island.


Antigua's Carnival 2019 – "The Caribbean's Greatest Summer Festival" will take place from Thursday 25th July to Tuesday 6th August.

During his remarks, Alexander stated that "The success of our Carnival is everyone's business, which is why we
decided to make it our business to pledge our continued support to the Antigua and Barbuda Festivals
Commission and Antigua's Carnival – The Caribbean's Greatest Summer Festival"

In response, Carnival Minister, the Honourable Daryll Matthew expressed his profound gratitude to the
management of the Antigua Distillery Ltd., for their commitment to Antigua's Carnival.

The Minister also added, "The Antigua Distillery Ltd. has always been a good partner to the Festivals
Commission and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda. For several years, the company has played a
significant role in assisting us in marketing Carnival in Antigua and Barbuda and abroad. Currently, a
partnership arrangement, through the English Harbour brand, is in place for Hollywood Carnival, where
Antigua's Carnival gains significant exposure. Starting last year, the ABFC also received tremendous support
from Antigua Distillery Ltd. to cover the cost of a delegation to be a part of the popular Uber Soca Cruise (USC).
This USC experience gave the ABFC a great opportunity to market Antigua's Carnival extensively to a captive

be staged on Saturday 27th July; the OASIS Water Junior Carnival on Sunday 28th July, and the Cavalier Rum
