AT LONG LAST… AUSTRALIA’S FINEST RUM

AUSTRALIA CERTIFIED ORGANIC rum made and matured on AUSTRALIA’S beautiful SUB-TROPICAL Sunshine Coast, a UNESCO-recognized biosphere. 

A UNIQUE TERROIR of soil, climate and place create rum like no other with a rich floral nose and bold flavors of ripe tropical fruit.  

Molasses from sugar cane, organically grown on Queensland’s rich, fertile volcanic plains, is NATURALLY WILD FERMENTED with Woombye water, dunder and muck, then double POT DISTILLED and barrel AGED FOR A MINIMUM OF 2 YEARS in bourbon barrels emptied of sherry and port. 

DELICIOUS. 100% pure unadulterated rum. NIL additives. NIL added sugar, sweeteners, caramel, glycerine, flavours, colours or chemicals.  

NIL DESPERANDUM means NO WORRIES

In 1871 this ambitious declaration glittered in gold on Woombye’s first pub. Today it’s known all over the world as Australia’s iconic expression of easy-going optimism regardless of the circumstances: NO WORRIES.

We just love that. And it gives you an idea of who we are and why we do what we do. 

The purest rum distilled with love, art and science. Full of expressive and full-bodied flavour, authentically Australian but comfortably compared to the most exceptional Caribbean rums.
