A Selection of Unique and Delicious Craft Rums to Try

craft rum

Craft rum is a relatively new and exciting addition to the world of spirits. Unlike mass-produced rums that are made on a large scale, craft rums are produced in small batches by independent distillers. This allows for more creativity and experimentation in the distillation process, resulting in a wide range of unique and flavorful rums.

What is Craft Rum?

In recent years, craft rum and gin have been gaining in popularity as more people discover the delicious and diverse world of small-batch spirits. Craft rum offers something for everyone from white to dark rum, spiced rum, and everything in between. Whether you’re a seasoned rum aficionado or new to the category, there’s a craft rum out there that will suit your taste.

There are several different types of rum, each with its own distinct flavour profile. White rum, also known as silver or light rum, is typically clear and has a milder flavour. It is often used in cocktails, such as a mojito or daiquiri. Dark rum, also known as black rum, is aged for a longer period of time and has a stronger, more complex flavour. It is often enjoyed neat or on the rocks. Spiced rum is made by adding spices, such as cinnamon or vanilla, to the distillate. It has a distinct flavour profile and is often used in cocktails.

How to choose the right Craft Rum for you

When choosing a craft rum, there are several factors to consider. One of the most important is the age of the rum. The longer a rum is aged, the more complex its flavour will be. However, keep in mind that older isn’t always better – a well-made young rum can be just as delicious as an older one. Another important factor is barrel ageing. Rums that are aged in oak barrels will take on a different flavour profile than those aged in stainless steel tanks. Additionally, it’s worth considering the ingredients used in the rum’s production. Some craft rums are made with only molasses, while others use a mix of molasses and sugarcane juice. The ingredients used can greatly affect the rum’s final flavour.
