It was in Trinidad that Redvulette was born and made its first real appearance and where the name Redvulette originated from, that day there wasn't enough to go round.
As word got round amongst family & friends, I was producing litres of Redvulette, for birthday parties, weddings, christening & funerals and to be perfectly honest on every occasion they saved on their drinks bill. With the fantastic comments and support that I received, I was encouraged to make a decision to give up or make a business out of this unique drink. Consequently after many months of formalities and ensuring that the legalities and trading standards were met, I was in business with my very loyal and supportive husband Sam.
Redvulette what does it mean? It now has its own meaning: it is the best rum punch out there, taste the rum and feel the heat!
So there you have it, no gimmicks or fairy tale stories, just how Redvulette arrived!! Of course with every new business you need that little bit of support, so if you haven't tasted Redvulette before, why not join the party and try a bottle, otherwise you'll never know what you are missing.

Emma Rollason - Pandora's Door
Pandora's Door is the ultimate themed show venue. Emma has already produced the first London show: "Zeus on the Loose" To rave reviews. It was a rollercoaster fusion of musical theatre, ?twisted circus, burlesque and special effects, it was promoted with a health warning! For grown-ups only and strictly not for the fainthearted! In Ancient Greece, two beautiful, joyous, happy sisters, Aphrodite and Ilithyia, both had the ability to overturn the most powerful of gods. Zeus on the Loose is an epic tale of love, deceit, double-crossing and infidelity, with a twist that left you saying "oh my gods".
This is the first of Pandora's Door's creations. The cast were hand-picked with actors from Cbeebies, Hairspray and international circus performers. Emma is now looking for access to funding to run a series of shows which will be interactive with the audience, offering drinks and dancing into the wee hours together with memorable dinning experiences. Think Talk of the Town combined with Cirque du Soleil as an immersive experience!
