The world’s most awarded rum of 2018, Neptune Rum, is now available at some of the coolest bars in Gloucestershire. Here’s our roundup of where you can grab a glass.

About the sponsor

Neptune Rum

Cheltenham based Neptune Rum is taking the spirit world by storm – but being named after the God of the sea, we shouldn’t be surprised!

The world’s most awarded rum of 2018, Neptune Rum is a delicious golden rum, created at the oldest, family-run distillery in Barbados.

It was conceived by Cheltenham businessman Richard Davies, with a new local headquarters in the centre of the spa town. For more information visit neptunerum.com directly.


1. The Retreat


Known as one of Cheltenham’s most popular bars, The Retreat, housed in the heart of The Suffolks has been family run since 1982.

An ideal destination for lovers of live music and a party atmosphere, the venue also hosts regular quizzes, and a monthly supper club. It’s also a great spot for cocktails, where you can pick up a gorgeously blended Neptune Rum cocktail.


2. Door 4


Located in Cheltenham’s trendy Montpellier, Door 4 is a creative cocktail bar promising to serve up drinks that ‘challenge the taste buds’.

Offering a range of cheese and charcuterie boards to accompany its stand-out cocktail menu, Door 4 is a great choice for those looking to trial some new flavours.

But if you’re after a sure-fire hit, this venue also stocks the world’s most awarded rum, Neptune.


3. The Beehive Pub


Another Montpellier favourite, The Beehive is a friendly local bar and eatery serving up tasty pub grub, and a delicious range of wines, beers and spirits.

6. The Clarence Social


This stylish bar in the heart of the Cheltenham nightlife scene boasts a secret speakeasy bar and a mezzanine restaurant.

Serving up an array of carefully constructed drinks and cocktails, sit-down dinners and canapes for organised functions, it’s no wonder this effortlessly cool venue was chosen to stock Neptune Rum in its well-stocked bar.
