About this deal

At 40% ABV, this versatile blend is perfect simply served over ice or as the base of your favourite rum cocktail. The flagship bottling is the Bumbu Original , but for something extra special, the Bumbu XO is an extra special rum that’s spent 18 years in ex-bourbon barrels, before being finished in ex-sherry casks. This 12 dram premium Gin collection contains 12 different 30ml wax-sealed drams of premium gin from some excellent producers.

Distilled in small batches and blended by hand, BUMBU reveals its heritage and craftsmanship with every sip.

It’s made at the West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados and adheres to a 400 year old recipe used by local sailors of the time. Bumbu’s range of rums are produced in small batches, using sugarcane that derives from eight different countries, It’s distilled using two continuous pit stills and the yeast strain used during fermentation dates back to 1840! It is made in the Caribbean island of Barbados, known as the "Rum Islandï", where the spirit originated over 400 years ago.Rich notes of cinnamon, vanilla, oak, and butterscotch coat the palate before culminating in a long, warmly spiced finish. Tasting Notes: Bumbu The Original is made using native Caribbean spices and sugar cane from across the region, the recipe is based on original recipes used by West Indian sailors in the 16th adn 17th centuries and is extremely drinkable! This artisanal rum is further distilled with Barbados' naturally coral-filtered water, considered amongst the purest globally, resulting in a superbly smooth and indulgent spirit - all presented in a stylish bottle that exudes sophistication. Presented in ultra-heavyweight glass bottles with traditional oversized corks, this collection is as visually striking as it is delicious.

Beautiful sweet rum, I recommended putting it in the freezer a couple hours before drinking as you wont need any ice that way and it becomes thicker like a thin treacle. A smooth, rich and complex rum created from scratch by our master distiller, our XO is aged in bourbon barrels and selectively finished in white oak sherry casks to achieve a beautifully balanced, endlessly sippable rum. The aged Caribbean rum has had native spices added to it, inspired by 16th and 17th century recipes used by West Indian sailors.

The vanilla overtones are dominant and maybe a bit overpowering which exhibits a sweetness that is even hard to add a mixer. The General Wine Company is a family-owned and operated wine merchant in Liphook, Hampshire, England.
