Product description

Ratu [rah-tu] is the name given to Fiji’s mighty warrior chiefs. The Fijian islands are renowned for their pure water, nourishing the sugar cane growing in rich volcanic soil. The hand-cut sugar cane is distilled into rum then filtered through coconut shell carbon to capture the taste of Fiji. Highly awarded internationally and brought to you by RUM Co. of Fiji, our RATU Fijian Dark Rum is aged for 5 years in charred oak barrels and has a savory, smoked oak aroma which gives way to the rich sweetness of caramel, vanilla and tea leaves. Most recently, this rum received a Gold medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

FAQs

Dark rum doesn't really have a definition. However, dark rum generally refers to rum that is brown in appearance thanks either aging, or the addition of molasses or caramel coloring. Dark rum is known to taste slightly more charred than other varieties, like white rum. That said, people often drink it neat or with over ice.
Dark rum goes great with a number of mixers, including ginger ale, orange juice, grapefruit juice and sodas like Coca-Cola. Dark rum has the heaviest, fullest body of any other variety of rum. It's rich in color, flavor and body - usually tasting of caramel and molasses. So, any beverage that could use a kick of caramel will be well suited to go with dark rum.
Also known as white rum, this is rum that has no color and a light flavor because its filtered multiple times and has a short aging period. It's often aged in steel tanks and is known for having a light body and sweet flavor. This is different than gold or dark rum which is aged in wooden casks and is notably more caramel tasting.
