The Story of Rum Nation
Rum Nation was created by (our founding father), Fabio Rossi. He sought out select casks of rum from around the world on his numerous travels and bottled the very first Rum Nation bottles back in 1999. The variety of the different casks he chose and the huge difference in
geographical styles required a unique approach to each style of rum – joined under one brand. This became the cornerstone of our philosophy then and is our philosophy still today – to join a selection of the best rums from different nations under one series – Rum Nation.
In this manner, the labelling of the rums does not (necessarily) include the names of the distilleries but instead the area of origin. Additionally, a postal stamp of the same country of origin as the rum is a graphical embellishment that continues throughout our entire range of bottles and labels.
Today Rum Nation is part of the Mac Y Group A/S, who purchased Rum Nation in November 2018, and Rum Nation International A/S was born. Both have long-standing ties to Rossi & Rossi and have worked together for many years. Even though the company’s ownership has changed hands, the partnership with Rossi & Rossi continues. Together, we move forward to create new visions but remain deeply rooted in the Rum Nation heritage.
So, the story of Rum Nation is that of an award-winning brand, distributed around the world, well known and highly appreciated by rum lovers of all nations – with a history that reaches back more than twenty years.
Rum Nation also includes our connoisseur Rare Rums series. Each Rare Rums release is a small batch bottling, individually numbered, detailing the cask numbers and distillery. Find more information on www.rarerums.com
Nose: Almost buttery, very sweet and smelling of fresh sugarcane juice. Toffee, milk chocolate.
Taste: Rich and intense, yet never sharp. The kind of full-bodied intensity which coats the tongue and caresses it. Raisins, figs, dates, but the sweetness is matched by a hint of spiciness such as cinnamon, pepper and pleasant oak tannins.
Finish: Getting more peppery and oaky, but always velvety, syrupy, and extremely sweet. Cola and black sugared tea.
