Bumbu XO is truly a thing of beauty. A smooth, rich and complex rum created from scratch by our master distiller, our XO is aged in bourbon barrels and finished in 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.
In Barbados, where Original Bumbu is made, rum isn’t just another spirit. Barbados is the original rum island, where rum was first created some 400 years ago – rum has a hallowed place in Bajan culture. At Bumbu Rum Company, they take rum distillation seriously. Their blends are exceptionally balanced and smooth, without sacrificing the richness and complexity that makes their distilleries in Barbados and Panama the world’s best.
From pirate life on the open sea to Caribbean island paradises, perhaps no other spirit evokes such a romantic history as Rum. Made through fermentation and distillation of molasses or the fresh-pressed juice of sugar cane, Rums range from 20% to over 70% alcohol and come in a variety of tones from clear to dark. Highest quality Rums are generally produced in pot stills and aged in wood, while less expensive Clear or “White” Rums are produced in column stills and bottled without barrel aging. Naturally, Rums form the base of tropical cocktails like Daquiris and Mojitos.
