The Bumbu Rum Company has a collection of fine, crafted rums created in distilleries in Barbados and Panama.

There’s three exceptional rums to choose from the Bumbu original, blended from Barbados rum and hand-selected spices.

The Bumbu XO distilled and aged in Panama, in bourbon barrels and finished in white oak sherry casks. This rum gives aromas of toffee, vanilla a warm orange flavour and spicy finish.
