About Bumbu

Bumbu Rum Co.’s heritage dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries when sailors and merchants, unsatisfied with their customary grog, added Caribbean fruits and spices to enhance their rum’s flavor, giving it the name “bumbu.” Bumbu Rum Co. launched with Original Bumbu, the Barbadian craft rum that has quickly become the world’s most decorated rum, including back-to-back “Best In Category” honors from the International Wine & Spirits Competition in Los Angeles. Original Bumbu is distinguished by its dark hue and golden metal “X” medallion, and is now far-and-away the fastest-growing brand in the ultra-premium rum category. The Bumbu portfolio also includes the recently-released Bumbu XO, a small-batch ultra-premium rum from Panama aged up to 18 years in bourbon barrels and finished in white oak sherry barrels from Andalusia, Spain. Bumbu XO is packaged in striking matte black bottle, with silver and white details and a tarnished silver “X” medallion.
