As Fiji is, geologically speaking, a fairly young country, the island retains its very rich volcanic soils with virtually no erosion. As a result, its sugar cane is organically grown and among the best in the world. This, combined with pure Fijian water and the perfect tropical climate for maturation, makes Fijian rum some of the finest on Earth. Taking advantage of these natural advantages, the Fiji Rum Company have been crafting award-winning rums on the island for almost forty years. If you fancy yourself a fan of finely crafted rum, you can read about their best bottlings below. Of course, if you’re more interested in a hands-on experience, you could always attend our FIJI Rum Co & BBQ Tasting Event read more about that later!

The Bati were fearsome warriors who protected their homeland with hellacious fury. Revered and reviled the world over, their dedication to defending Fiji kept the island free from sailors and pirates for centuries. This protection ensured the island of Fiji would forever remain an idyllic paradise free from impurity. It was only because of this that such exceptionally smooth rums could become crafted, inspiring the Fiji Rum Co to thank the Bati on every bottle.
