Our big girl has done it again! Matilda delivered the best Australian Cane spirit, two Golds and three Silvers for us at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards last night. We are truly humbled by the recognition, James has not stopped smiling since and has not managed to put down the trophy. Here is the run down of what we won:
BEST AUSTRALIAN CANE SPIRIT: JimmyRum Navy
GOLD: JimmyRum Navy & JimmyRum Silver
SILVER: RumRum, JimmyRum Oaked and JimmyRum Spiced
Oh and we had a top four in the BEST VICTORIAN DISTILLERY
all the winners from last night. It was so great to see so many of our fellow distillers at the awards night, all being honoured for their amazing craftsmanship, passion and dedication. We are lucky to be in such good company
It's so great to get the recognition for our Navy, Silver and Oakes. They were the first three products produced by gorgeous still Matilda. Like all of our spirits they are all made to be enjoyed neat but we have had so much fun over the years creating a wide array of cocktails. You will find Navy in Jimmy's favourite cocktail the Hemingway Daiquiri, one not to be missed out on.
Start your JimmyRum Journey with our Pre-mixed Cans
If you are new to cane spirits and rum a great way to start your JimmyRum journey is with our newly launched Pre-mixed cans. The pre-mixed cans come in four different mixes; Jimmy Comet and Pear Punch which is based on the Navy, Stormy Jimmy on the Silver, and the Dirty Spiced using our Spiced.
This has been a long time in the making and is our pride and joy. RumRum was recently recognised on the global stage as the best craft rum off a hybrid still at the World Rum Awards. Read more about this in our earlier blog post.
Wow! What a year it’s been so far. We are immensely proud of our RumRum Batch #2 winning gold for the World's Best Hybrid Still rum under five years, and took away overall winner in the hybrid still category.
RumRum wasn’t the only winner in the World's Best Hybrid Still category:
JimmyRum Oaked won Silver
JimmyRum Navy won Bronze
And its doesn't end there, our Spiced picked up a bronze in the Worlds Best Traditional Spiced category which is one of the latest addition to our collection. It's fast becoming a firm favourite amongst our friends.

Jimmy loves to share his passion and knowledge about making Australian craft rum over a glass of rum or two!
The perfect combination of seaside charm and rich wine country, the Mornington Peninsula is truly a treasure of Victoria’s coastline. With its stunning vineyard dotted hills, the Mornington Peninsula is famous for its elegant, cool-climate wine.
The Mornington Peninsula, however, is also home to some of the best breweries and distilleries in Australia.
Once derided as a sweet, one-dimensional spirit, Australian rum is enjoying a renaissance, thanks to a growing number of craft rum distilleries who are making rum in a variety of expressions.
Located in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, rum producer JimmyRum is the coastal region’s first craft rum distillery. It stands out in a landscape peppered with wineries: The peninsula, just an hour’s drive southeast of Melbourne, is known for its excellent Pinot Noir and other cool climate wines.
JimmyRum crowned gold in the cane spirits category for our Silver spirit, alongside Husk Distillery, at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards last week. With Oaked and Navy taking out silver making JimmyRum Victoria’s best cane spirit producer for 2020.
Our handcrafted cane spirit is the result of years of research, development, sweat, and running on pure passion, so it’s truly awesome to be recognised by our peers as an award-winning spirit. A big thank you to all of our supporters for joining us on the adventure. Big things to come for JimmyRum, we can’t wait to share the journey with you.
This month JimmyRum attended the 2021 Australian Distilled Spirit AwardsThe Awards recognise all categories of Australian distillers, including the exciting new generation of up-and-coming producers, giving passionate distillers like us an awesome benchmarking opportunity.
The results of the World Rum Awards 2021 are in…. and we’re unbelievably proud to announce, JimmyRum has come away with a couple of huge wins! Led by Matilda, our 1,500ltr hybrid copper still, we’ve won the following:
JimmyRum Navy– has been voted the world’s best “Hybrid Still, Unaged Rum”
JimmyRum Silver– was awarded a Silver medal in the same category, and
JimmyRum Oaked– earned a Silver medal in the “Hybrid still, Rum 5 years and under” category.
We’re in amongst some prestigious competition, and to produce such incredible results in just a few years is mind-blowing. We can’t wait for the years to come. I want to thank all of you for joining and supporting us on the adventure so far.

The fine print…While we have won these awards in the “World Rum Award” judged in the UK, in Australia the three styles we entered are considered to be a Cane spirit and NOT a rum. They are considered to be rum in most parts of the world, hence the rum awards we won, just not in Australia.

Our first adventure into the world of Spiced Cane Spirit. We’ve spent many months testing different flavour directions, but ultimately, JimmyRum is all about showing “what rum can be” — so we figured it would be logical to start with the classic spiced rum flavours.
Spiced contains elements of apple, lime, orange, smoked vanilla, as well as a good dash of spice from nutmeg and cinnamon. Blended to be low on sweetness, you get more of the true JimmyRum flavour and it makes a great first step into the amazing world of rum.
It can be savoured over ice, combined with your favourite mixer, or step up your skills and drop it into a classic Pina Colada or Mai Tai.
