Bumbu is a premium, all-natural craft rum distilled, aged, and bottled in Barbados at a beachside distillery opened in 1893. The rum is an authentic recreation of a Caribbean legend, made using a 400-year old recipe for the original “Bumbu” made by sailors of the 16th and 17th century West Indies. Using sugarcane sourced from eight different countries, distilled and blended with Barbados’ naturally coral-filtered water, and aged in once-used oak bourbon barrels, Bumbu is a rum of unrivaled complexity and smoothness, and has been awarded five gold medals – including two “Best in Category” honors – in two years at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition.
