Berrys' Own Selection Fiji Rum, Aged 8 Years

Description

Today, the present generation of Berrys and Rudds continue to manage the family-owned business from 3 St James’s Street. Although sugar cane is indigenous to Fiji and grows wild, its importance as a crop was not realised until 1870 when the cotton price slumped. Commercial production of rum is thought to have begun 20 years later. This beautifully balanced Rum gives soft ripe fruit and acacia honey on the nose. The palate delivers more ripe fruit, a treacle note and light, well controlled wood. The attractive finish is clean and lingering.

Berry Bros. & Rudd can trace its origins back to 1698 when the Widow Bourne founded her shop opposite St James’s Palace.

Own Range Rum

Own Range Rum

Our collection of rum represents a range of countries around the world, from Jamaica and Barbados to Mauritius and Fiji.

These different rums can vary greatly in style and taste: spicy or fruity, white or dark, smoky or bright. Broadly speaking, there are three distinctive styles of rum, which have been shaped by historical colonial forces: British, French and Spanish.

Rums made in English-speaking regions, such as Barbados and Belize, tend to be heavier and richer in style. Those made in French-speaking areas, such as Haiti, are likely to be leafy and smoky; while Spanish-speaking countries, such as Nicaragua and Guatemala, are likely to produce a lighter, brighter style of rum. You’ll also find an ever-expanding collection of rums from other territories and continents, from Mauritius to England.
