Rum Making


Rum making can be an interesting process, to view the more visual stages of the process click the image below:

........................................

1. Raw Materials

Molasses, made from the juice extracted from sugarcane, is imported from the fertile river plains of sugar-producing Guyana.
........................................

2. Fermentation

Water, yeast & molasses are mixed and fermented at controlled temperatures for 24-30 hours.
........................................

3. Distillation

The mixture is heated and distilled in either a pot still or column (continuous) still. Each produces a distinct flavour and each level of extraction gives a unique character to the spirit. The boutique and variety depend on the different draw points.
........................................

4. Maturation

Maturation time depends on the type of rum to be produced – premium aged rums, called sipping rums, are aged the longest; mixing rums like Bounty take less time and white rums like Strong and unaged.
........................................

5. Blending

The exact character of each rum or liqueur is determined by a master team of blenders who are constantly developing new products once the right blend has been created and the product developed, those are meticulously reproduced on the production line.
........................................

6. Bottling

The packaging of a product often makes the difference between a rum’s commercial success and its failure. No matter how critically acclaimed the rum, packaging has to catch the eye. The label needs to resonate with the consumer.
