The Great White Rum is made using a unique adaptation of a centuries old Caribbean rum making technique, We use strong African blackstrap molasses to add a bit of local flair and flavour.
When drinking our rum straight, one gets a distinct tropical fruit taste on the front of the palate. Overall there is a natural sweetness to the rum, making it pleasant to drink in a variety of ways.It also plays nicely with a variety of mixers, including many tonics, lemonade and ginger beer.
We do not add any sugars, chemicals or artificial flavourants. Our rum is double distilled making it very smooth. This allows you to drink it on the rocks, in your favourite cocktail or with a mixer of your choice. It is truly an authentic craft rum.
Cape of Storms Distillery
At Cape of Storms Distilling Company we are pioneering a completely new rum making method in South Africa. By combining a centuries old Caribbean rum making technique with naturally strong African blackstrap molasses, we have created a truly unique product.
The local rum selection has always been very limited and with the craft gin and craft beer industries having taken off, we felt it was time to educate South Africans on what rum can truly taste like. The rum industry is about to be taken by storm!
At our distillery we believe in honesty and as such do not use mass produced neutral spirits to make our craft rum. Nor do we use any artificial additives or sugars to alter the flavour of the final product.
Our rum is fermented using only 4 ingredients; molasses, water, yeast and yeast nutrients. This ferment is then distilled using our big 760L still, affectionately known as “Big Jack”. Our rum then undergoes a second distillation in “Little Elaine”, our 100L column still. Finally the rum is bottled on site at The Spice Yard, 100 Voortrekker Road, Salt River in the beautiful city of Cape Town.
