Radico Khaitan-owned single malt whisky distillery Rampur has launched The Kohinoor Reserve Indian Dark Rum.

Rampur Distillery releases Indian dark rum

Rampur Distillery’s latest launch has been produced via small-batch distillation, using fresh cane juice during the North Indian winter season. The rum, which has an ABV of 43%, is matured in American Oak Barrels previously used for maturing Indian single malt whisky, followed by further maturation in Cognac XO and Vermouth casks.

Parent company Radico Khaitan is best known for producing single malt whiskies and Indian craft gins, but the company has been making Indian rums since its inception in 1943.

Local reports have picked up on a craft rum revolution in India. Amrut Distilleries, Piccadilly Distilleries, and Nao Spirits have all released products in recent years which highlight the growing potential of Indian gin, and Rampur is the latest to jump on the trend.

The Kohinoor Reserve Indian Dark Rum will be rolling out in coming months across global markets including the USA, UK, EU, Asia as well as GTR, the company has said. Its latest product has an RRP of £45.

Rampur Distillery announced the new product at the International Association of Airport and Duty Free Stores (IAADFS) Summit of the Americas at the Palm Beach County Convention Centre in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Radico Khaitan’s luxury portfolio includes Rampur Select, Rampur PX Sherry Cask, Rampur Double Cask, Rampur Asava, Rampur Signature Reserve, Rampur Jugalbandi Series, Rampur Trigun Indian Single Malt Whiskies, Sangam World Malt Whisky and Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gins.
