In Barbados, rum isn’t just another spirit. We’re the original rum island, where rum was first created some 400 years ago. We’ve spent the last few centuries perfecting the art of distilling and blending our country’s most famous export.
BUMBU RUM CO.
At Bumbu Rum Company, we handcraft our rums from a blend of the finest sugarcane from across the West Indies. Our rum is exceptionally balanced and smooth, without sacrificing the richness and complexity that makes our Barbados distillery’s rum the world’s best – although we’re a little biased.
Exceptionally balanced and smooth
Our ultra-heavyweight glass bottle is a work of art on its own, adorned with
a tarnished metal “X” in front and a map of the Caribbean across the back.
Our Original Bumbu is based on the original recipe created by 16th and 17th-century sailors of the West Indies, who blended native Caribbean ingredients into their rum and called it “Bumbu” – truly the original craft spirit.
Using the same all-natural native spices and no artificial colours or flavours, Bumbu is an authentic revival of this piece of Caribbean history. Distilled in small batches and blended by hand, BUMBU reveals its heritage and craftsmanship with every sip.
We’re pretty sure our great-great-grandfathers would approve.
Bumbu XO is truly a thing of beauty. A smooth, rich and complex handcrafted rum created from scratch by our master distiller, our XO is aged up to 18 years in bourbon barrels and finished in Spanish white oak sherry casks to achieve a beautifully balanced, endlessly sippable rum.
This special release is distilled and aged in Panama, where we created a truly unique – and unquestionably superior – rum. Aromas of toffee, toasted oak, and vanilla give way to orange zest, peppery spice and even a hint of coffee on the palate.
A wonderfully engaging rum that encourages repeat visits, Bumbu XO is perfect for traditional rum cocktails – and perhaps even better on its own, neat or with a single ice cube.
