When we launched Lost Years Rum at the height of lockdown in November 2020, we launched with a very simple and clear purpose - to save endangered sea turtles one sip at a time!
Fast-forward 18 months and we are delighted to share the news that - following our latest payment to our charity partner SEE Turtles - we have so far generated enough money to save a staggering 35,845 baby sea turtles!
Just think of all those gorgeous little creatures beginning their own journey into the 'lost years' (the name comes from the mysterious early years of a sea turtle's life!!)
That cash is being used to fund and support a wide variety of community-based conservation projects across key nesting sites in Latin America and the Caribbean. You can learn more about some of these here on our blog.
We're only just getting going, but a sincere and heart felt thank you to all of you who have purchased our rum and helped make our dream come true.
