Mount Gay will also be advertised outside the Holiday Inn at Southampton and guests in the hotel will receive a miniature of Eclipse or XO in their room.

The brand is hosting the traditional Red Cap party at the end of the regatta and a branded boat will be taking to the waters during the course of the week.”

Brand manager Alvin Saal said: “This is the coming together of the world’s oldest rum with one of the UK’s longest-running and most successful sporting events.”
