JimmyRum

AUSTRALIAN CRAFT DISTILLERY

Explore the world of rum.

JimmyRum is an upcoming distillery about to change the way Australians think about rum. Uncomplicated, unpretentious and unruly, we’re putting together rums that are distinctive and downright delicious.

Keep track of where we're at! Due to open in early 2019.

Ughhh, the ugly bit: business plans, finance and licensing. Also, developing our rum, designing the still and systems, finding a venue with character.

DONE!

OUR STORY

The idea stuck

“So what ya gonna do when this finishes up?”
“Stuff it. I’m going to make rum.”

A 20 year career at sea as a marine engineer was coming to an end. I started a ridiculous rumour of opening a rum distillery. Who’d have thought that would come true? The idea started to grow and before I knew it I was on a trip to North America, the Caribbean and Europe to do some deep and thorough research on craft distilling (it was a tough trip!). Arriving home, well and truly bitten by the craft spirits industry, I was inspired by the incredible passion the distillers had for their product and the craft.

So there you have it. What started as a ridiculous rumour is now JimmyRum—a passion project to distill premium craft Australian rum. Join us for the journey!

OUR RUM

Rum, you say?

While our primary goal is to titillate your taste buds and warm the soul, we’d love to educate as many of you as we can about the beauty and distinctiveness of rum styles from around the world. We will be producing a wide variety of rum—dark, light, spiced, agricole, and cachaça.

Why do you have to wait two years for our “RUM”? Australia, like many other countries around the world have regulations to protect the quality of “Rum” sold in the country. We cannot label any of our product as “Rum” until it has spent two years aging in an oak barrel (where it will be well spoken to, loved and caressed regularly to ensure it grows up positive and happy).

So, what will we be selling at first? A variety of cane spirits made from the same ingredients we are putting in the barrels to become “Rum”.

Keep on top of what JimmyRum is up to!
