Rhuby at Skvaderdam
Our beloved Tommy Isaksson has been out and about with the student Crowd – ensuring he is in with the ladies. Rhuby partook in the event Skvaderdam – a party held at Uppsala University. We can always count on that Tommy does a great job for Rhuby.
At the Pink Your Drink cocktail competition in Stockholm 2013, he was surrounded with lots of ladies working the event. Gossip has told us he was given some special kind of coffee by the bartenders Elsa Holmberg and Jolene Cadwell that made sure he could keep up with all the things happening. We are grateful for everything he does for us and with a true passion for the spirit industry he is a great guy to have on the team.
Production and bottling hall
Rhuby has taken the first steps for being able to produce and bottle its rhubarb liqueur. Nowadays Rhuby uses the services of a third party to blend and bottling.
Finding the perfect spot has taken some time and now its official that founder Ylva Binder is buying the old station house in the small village Åkers Styckebruk. The station will be refurnished in the next couple of months to suit the needs of the company.
Feature in Dagens Nyheter
Rhuby has been making ground in Sweden and thanks Dagens Nyheter – Swedens largest Daily newspaper in Sweden for the wonderful feature.
The article came out March 11th, the birthday of founder Ylva Binder. She got a nice welcome at the Arlanda airport when she took an early flight to the US for a couple of meetings – as stated by her 3 states in three days where a bit of a challenge.
New rhubarb fields
As the brand grows Rhuby needs to expand the rhubarb fields. The founder of Rhuby enjoys the fact that her own rhubarbs is being used in the making of her liqueur. All rhubarbs comes from the vicinity both self grown and collected from farmers in Södermanland.
100 new plants has been bought and planted, now we need to wait and see if they like their new spot.
