Monkey Rum is distilled 100% from Caribbean Molasses. Angostura, Trinidad, our source of rum, distills using column stills that allows the blender to draw off a lighter, clean, rum base that we then age for up to three years. Both rums are barrel aged in ex-bourbon American Oak barrels. These barrels impart some vanilla tones, and lend a smooth quality and golden hue to the rums. Angostura’s Master Blender hand selects barrels of aged rum to expertly blend these together to form the basis of both our Toasted Coconut and Spiced rums.

Monkey Rum is about sophistication, adventure, and fun. “Let Monkey Rum inspire your sense of adventure.
