It was a Thursday afternoon at a sailing event somewhere in the Netherlands, where we both met on a boat with an afternoon beer in our hands. Naturally, that one beer turned into a few more and eventually resulted in us opening a bottle of rum that we mixed with some cola on the rocks. 

Many years later we have shared countless more stories, adventures, and of course, drinks. Most importantly however we share a passion for entrepreneurship, the environment, and high-quality products. Motivated by this passion we have started our brand, Mates Spirits, to enrich the industry with a new, high-quality, environmentally conscious, and most importantly delicious drink; Mates Gold Rum.

Dear world, this one’s for you my mate(s)!

Okay, now let’s cut the chitchat. We could keep on talking and share our complete story with you, but we’d rather encourage you to get up, make some calls, and start spreading the word on what you’ve just discovered; you just met your new mate in life! 

Let’s share this new mate with friends, family, and colleagues or get in touch and become new friends with us.
