The connection between the Caribbean and rum dates back a long time. Because rum is distilled from sugarcanes it is a popular liquer in this regeon. Sugarcane plantations are found in many parts of the Caribbean islands and coastal lands. The distillate is clear liquid that is aged in oak barrels. The quality of the rum is measured by the years of aging. Rum is a part of culture in the Caribbean as it is locally produced and relatively cheap compared to imported liqueres. In prirate stories rum was always played a big role as it was named "Bumbo". Centuries ago rum was even used as a currency in trade.
Besides AnnaBay Club, there are two other brands that are manufactured on the island; San Pable Rum and Rom Tambu. Each rum type has its own unique taste. We want to complement the initiators with their great marketing. We wish you success with the further development of this product.
