So.. after having to wait a while under embargo we can now officially announce to you guys/gals that the 1808 Barely Legal has been awarded the Bronze medal at the World Rum Awards in the 'Column Still - Unaged' Category.
It's a little confusing because the Gold and Silver Medals were won by 'Aged' rums.
And, since we can't call it 'White Rum' in Australia (for legal reasons), we can probably say that our little distillery in Dongara produces the Best unaged Cane Spirit (made in a column still from dark brown cane sugar) in THE WORLD!
This is an absolutely huge achievement and we are very very excited about this result and what it means for our barrel aged rum to be released later in the year!
Another award to add to our repertoire and our 10th international spirit award!
