Yolo Rum sells shares via Wefunder collective financing platform

DBR Staff Writer Published 25 June 2018

Yolo Rum is selling shares in order to become the first democracy powered major spirit brand and company.

Yolo Rum founder Philip Guerin further explains how the public demand for high quality, gluten free, sugar free spirits, is underserved by the major alcohol companies, and how Yolo Rum is appealing directly to this market.  By using a type of investment platform called a crowdfund, Yolo Rum is inviting the public to invest money and also help build the company's notoriety. 

Guerin said: "We have an amazing team, and adding hundreds of brand advocates that are vested through ownership is the definition of 'democracy powered.'"

The crowdfund campaign will go live to the public, Wednesday, June 20th on the Wefunder platform.  Wefunder's website said: "Wefunder is a crowdfunding service which connects startups with investors online."  There will be a limited amount of Yolo Rum shares authorized for sale.

Yolo Rum is a Denver based company that sells some of the world's highest quality rum, made in Panama.  Yolo Rum is a premium, gluten free, sugar free rum.  Yolo Rum Gold, a ten year aged rum and Yolo Rum Silver, are both crafted by master distiller and blender, Cuban born legend, Don Pancho Fernandez. 

Yolo Rum has earned twenty one international awards, and recently secured paramount distribution relationships with Mexcor and New Age Beverage Corporation.
