What Makes Fijian Rum World Class?
- Fiji is relatively young in geological terms, the island retains its very rich volcanic soils with virtually no erosion. As a result, most sugar cane is grown organically.
- Our Plantation grown sugar cane is still cut by hand, leading to a richer cane juice with fewer tannins remaining.
Fijian Sugar Mills use traditional techniques producing a much richer Molasses with a higher base sugar. This gives a much better starting base for our fermentation and a more unique flavour profile is the end result.
- Depending on the blend, our Rum will have a higher content of Pot Still, giving a unique flavour profile as opposed to Rum from Continuous Distillation used elsewhere.
- The Fijian climate is ideal for the maturation of Rum due to the heat and the humidity which accelerates the ageing process. This produces more complexity of flavour over a comparable period in colder climates.
- Fijian water is fresh and pure, falling from the Pacific into our natural water sources
