Bumbu rum is aged up to 15 years and is handcrafted from a blend of sugarcane selected from eight countries throughout the West Indies and South America. This allows them to achieve an exceptional balance of smoothness in their rum, without sacrificing richness and complexity, making Barbados distillery’s rum among the best in the world.
In fact, in Barbados, rum isn’t just another spirit. Barbados is known as the original rum island! Rum was first created there around 400 years ago and over the last few centuries, Bumbu has been perfecting the art of distilling and blending the country’s most famous export and of course creating Bumbu,The Craft Rum.
The bottle itself is absolutely gorgeous! It’s an ultra-heavyweight glass bottle with a tarnished metal “X” in front and a map of the Caribbean across the back. And you guys know I’m a hoarder and have an excessive cork collection… Well this stunning bottle comes with an old-fashioned, oversized cork with the signature “X” on the top.
Sovereign Brands was generous enough to send me SIX bottles of their amazing Bumbu rum for my girls weekend in Palm Springs to celebrate my birthday! Check out this tasty (and easy) cocktail I created featuring my new favorite rum!
Royer Corp generously sent me a TON of their adorable stirrers and swizzle sticks, turning each drink into it’s own work of art and the perfect Palm Springs cocktail!
I personally feel anything with rum makes the perfect summer cocktail! I love mixing rum with juice mixers and fresh fruit and of course some fun palm-springs themed stir sticks!
