Woody and spicy

Dry rums with hints of oak. Their woody notes add a soft, spicy character to a round, accessible, versatile whole.

Woody and roasted

Dry rums with pronounced roasting flavours. Brought on by barrels with a higher char level or prolonged aging, these aromas call to mind coffee, cacao, smoke, or burnt wood. Powerful and aromatic, they’re perfect for cocktails with character.

Vanilla and spicy

Mild and often flavoured, these rums offer a rich, captivating texture and hints of oak. Their notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, honey, or even maple pair particularly well with cola and coffee.

Product categories: Spiced rum

Vanilla and roasted

Mild rums with a rich, captivating texture, they stand out for their flavouring and for being barrel-aged with a higher char level. Their profile is rounded out with notes of cacao, mocha, smoke, or burnt wood.
