FAQ

How do you make rum?

Rum is made using only three ingredients: molasses from sugarcane, yeast and water. Ingredients are fermented, then distilled, aged, filtered and blended.

What is the difference between dark, gold and white rum?

Rum is a wonderfully complex and diverse spirit. Color can give us clues about time spent aging or the flavors that might be found within. Dark can be bold, sweet (or dry) and even smoky, gold is rich and soothing, and white is smooth, subtle and often refreshing.
But color can be misleading. The best way to truly understand a rum is to taste it for yourself.

What is the rum punch origin story?

Rum Punch is widely considered to be the one of the world’s earliest cocktails. 17th-century sailors in the tropics found their ale and wine going bad in the warm climate so turned to spirits tamed by fruit juices instead. As for the name, some say ‘punch’ comes from the Hindi word for ‘five’ – referring to the five elements that define a true punch: sweet (fruit and sugar), sour (lime or lemon), alcohol (rum, brandy or arrack), water, and spice (nutmeg). Others say it means ‘short and stout’ because it was served in squat casks which are, to this day, called Puncheons.
