Tanduay Silver Asian Rum

From the world’s largest rum producer, Tanduay Silver Asian Rum presents an outstanding premium cane spirit with a hint of straw color from time spent maturing in oak barrels.

Award-Winning Tanduay Silver Asian Rum

Crafted from premium heritage sugarcane varietals, the volcanic soil and tropical climate of the Philippines offer ideal conditions for growing cane and aging rum.

This well balanced blend of rums have been aged up to five years before most of the color has been filtered out.

Tanduay Silver Asian Rum Tasting Notes

Aromas of cane and subtle peppermint are accented by a creamy butter note before a neutral mineral quality leading to a very subtle whiff of coconut husk. On the palate, a honeyed soft coconut opening leads to buttery wood, with a nice long warm, dry peppery finish.

Tanduay Silver Asian Rum makes a smooth and crisp base for premium cocktails, an upscale alternative to other affordable clear rums.

Tanduay Rums have received many awards, including a gold medal in the RumXP International Tasting Competition at Rum Renaissance Festival.

Tanduay Silver Asian Rum, at 40% abv in the 750ml bottle, sells for about $21.

Blue Water Ultra Premium rums from Dominican Republic

Blue Water Beverage Brands recently launched their first two products at the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival and Trade Expo — Blue Water Ultra Premium white rum and Blue Water Caribbean Gold Premium Spiced Rum.

Blue Water Ultra Premium - Made in the Dominican Republic, two new spirits from Blue Water Rum include premium white and gold spiced expressions.

Blue Water Rum has recently released a premium white rum and an aged gold spiced rum, made in the Dominican Republic, which won a 2015 Gold RumXP Award.

The spiced rum took home a Gold Award in the 2015 RumXP international Tasting Competition.

The new brand, based in Tortola, British Virgin Islands, expects to deliver a full line of white, spiced, aged, flavored and specialty rums in the near future.

Behind this private label brand is boutique rum manufacturer Oliver & Oliver International of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Originally from Cuba, Omar Vicente Ramirez is the Maestro Ronero who supervises the development of Blue Water’s rums. Blue Water chose Omar for his decades of experience and worldly knowledge of rum.

Blue Water Ultra Premium Rum is a white 40% ABV distilled using a column still, then rested in a stainless steel vat leaving its color as pure as the blue waters of the Caribbean.

On the nose we find light alcohol with accents of sweet marshmallow and creamy vanilla over mineral water with vague cinnamon and aguardiente notes. On the palate, a very smooth entry builds up warmth in mid-palate, offering slightly sweet creamy vanilla marshmallow before building some warmth with echoes of fresh cane in the finish.

Blue Water Caribbean Gold Rum is a multi award-winning spiced rum of 35% ABV. This rum gets its color from aging in American Oak barrels for three years before being delicately infused with fruits and spices. It makes great cocktail and also plays well as a sipper on the rocks.

On the nose, we find zesty orange slice candy with baking spice leading to a hint of egg custard over sweet vanilla, with a suggestion of orange blossom water and double-bubble gum. A whiff of cinnamon is detected. On the palate, a medium sweet entry with bright orange and vanilla over baking spices dries out mid-palate, leading to an astringent note of anise which balances the sweet component.

The signature cocktail they have created with the spiced rum is “96 degrees,” named after the 96 Degrees In The Shade song from world famous recording reggae artists Third World.

96 Degrees

  •     2 oz Blue Water Caribbean Gold Spiced Rum
  •     1 oz Old Jamaica Ginger Beer
  •     several slices of fresh cucumber

method: Shake the rum with the cucumber slices and ice. Strain in a highball glass with fresh ice, top with ginger beer. Garnish with cucumber.

Blue Water rums are presently available for purchase in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies and Anguilla, British West Indies. Blue Water is expanding these brands into neighboring islands, including the exclusive and influential St. Barth’s, French West Indies and St. Kitts and Nevis. Blue Water intends to continue expanding these brands throughout the Caribbean Region and, ultimately, export them into the United States as early as 2016.

Deep Island Wave organic rum from Hawaii

Hawaii Sea Spirits, producers of Ocean Organic Vodka, today announced the introduction of Deep Island Wave Organic Rum.

From Maui, Deep Island's Wave Organic Rum is produced by Hawaii Sea Spirits from local sugar cane.

Deep Island’s Wave organic white rum is an organic white rum produced on the island of Maui by Hawaii Sea Spirits.

Derived from local organic sugar cane and diluted with deep ocean mineral water, Deep Island Wave Organic Rum is produced at Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery in the small town of Kula on the island of Maui. The rum is expected to be available for purchase and sampling at The Farm starting September 1 before state-wide distribution in October.

As life-long surfers, the Smith family (founders of Hawaii Sea Spirits) has a deep respect for the ocean and the way it transfers energy — through waves.

Their goal was to deliver an exceptional rum experience complete with all of the flavor and character found in their fresh pressed cane juice.

The design of the label represents an abstract interpretation of a wave crashing over lava rock shores.

“Deep Island Wave Organic Rum was inspired by our appreciation for sugar cane as a truly remarkable ingredient in creating distilled spirits,” says Hawaii Sea Spirits Master Distiller, Bill Scott. “It’s not only our goal but our passion to produce the cleanest, most mixable, luxurious spirits that showcase the unique qualities of the organic sugar cane and deep ocean mineral water blend.”

“Named for its cultural relevance as much as its physical description of Hawaii, Deep Island Wave Hawaiian Rum embodies the very spirit of our tropical islands,” stated HSS CEO, Shay Smith. “Not only are the Hawaiian Islands the deepest in the world, but also our way of life is deeply rooted in horticultural nurturing. This particular clear rum is dubbed “Wave” to further depict our respect for the energy in water that brings life to our islands.”

Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery in picturesque Kula — an area known as the up-country western-facing slopes of Haleakalā — highlights the company’s commitment to socially and environmentally conscious business practices. The operation uses solar panels to power 100% of the operations and they insist on sustainable farming techniques for growing and harvesting the organic sugar cane.

Tours at Hawaii Sea Spirits Organic Farm and Distillery run seven days a week to educate guests on the importance of organic farming for the conservation of land and ocean, sustainable manufacturing, and the production of quality spirits.

This 80 proof white rum caries a suggested list price of $33.95.
