Dickie Cullimore

Dickie Cullimore became Global Ambassador for BACARDÍ rum in 2015, finally achieving what he describes as his ‘dream job’ - having left a law degree in the late 1990s to learn the craft of bartending.

Dickie made a name for himself early in his career – representing New Zealand in cocktail competitions internationally, which instilled in him a love for the passion, friendships and opportunities to learn provided by such contests. Several successful years running some of the most iconic and award winning venues in New Zealand allowed Dickie the opportunity to take an instrumental role in pioneering the cocktail revolution in his homeland.

Dickie was delighted to become portfolio ambassador for Bacardi New Zealand in 2011. He used his deep knowledge of BACARDÍ and his ability to connect with the bar trade to lead a series of very successful category training programs, establishing BACARDÍ as the favourite rum amongst the New Zealand on-trade.

Now, as Global Ambassador for the brand he credits for giving him “a sense of family, a sense of place and an opportunity to give back to the global bartending community,”
