A sequence of loosely related pineapple adventures, brought to you by bartenders in the Netherlands.

Dickens’s first ever novel ‘The Pickwick Papers’, was published in monthly installments from 1836 until 1837. The novel presents a sequence of loosely related adventures build around a group of memorable characters, with Samuel Pickwick, a wealthy old gentleman and the founder and perpetual president of the Pickwick Club, at its center.

The Pickwick Papers served as an inspiration for Plantation Rum’s most celebrated expression. The ecclesiastical character Reverend Stiggins was an infamous lover of pineapple rum and it was his proclivity that inspired the name ‘Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum’.

Honouring Dickens, The Pickwick Papers and Plantation’s Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum, we are now creating our own quirky bundle of loosely related adventures, with cocktails to match.
