Hi-Spirits launches three rum blends for UK market

08 February, 2021

UK distributor Hi-Spirits has launched a range of three premium rums called Jung & Wulff which have been sourced from around the world.

Trinidad No. 1, Guyana No. 2 and Barbados No. 3 are the three expressions which will launch in the UK in 2021 and all three are blends of molasses-based rums ranging up to 15-years-old and bottled at 43% ABV.

The range of rums are blended by Sazerac’s master blender Drew Mayville from selected rums in each country. The blends are a mix of pot and column distilled rums and each one is the product of numerous environmental, production and ageing variables.

“Jung & Wulff were early importers of rum, distributing to cafés and bars across New Orleans and beyond,” said Liam Sparks, Bond & Royal portfolio manager, Hi-Spirits. “These rums are a testament to them, for their ongoing quest to acquire and distribute fine spirits.

“I’m delighted to launch these rums as part of the Hi-Spirits UK portfolio. Strictly limited, our Jung & Wulff rums celebrate three influential places: Trinidad, Guyana and Barbados. I believe these rums are a true interpretation of each island’s style and brilliantly showcases the different terroirs that are available throughout the Caribbean.”

Talking the challenges of cocktail weeks

Having recently returned from the US visiting both Oakland and Arizona Cocktail Weeks I was amazed by the differences in approach. In Oakland there was a much bigger trade focus and it felt more relaxed, whereas in Arizona it was one massive party for consumers.
