Limited Edition Range



Our first release, aptly titled “FIRST”, was on the 22/2/2022 at 2.22pm. A limited edition numbered release, each bottle one of 476. Australia’s FIRST Certified Organic molasses rum.

Unlike many other rums that are sweetened, coloured and in some cases flavoured, Nil Desperandum ‘FIRST’ contains only Australian certified organic molasses, Woombye water, yeast, and nothing else. The flavour is perfectly complimented through ageing in sherry-soaked oak barrels.

700 ML · 45% ALC/VOL


Nil Desperandum ‘FIRST’ is a full sensory experience. Boasting rich molasses undertones, while merging moody streams of mocha, chocolate, and vanilla. Candied pineapple and banana share their sweet disposition as soft notes of raisins, dates and figs transpire in every sip.


Intense aromas of old-school boiled lollies, molasses, figs and dates, tropical fruits, mango, and pineapple


Rich dry intensely flavour palate with burnt sugar, spices of cinnamon, cloves, dates, Turkish delight and baked apricots, cooked figs and paw paw, oak notes, port influence of red berry fruits and cedar and wood polish.
