Inner Circle Rum was first produced by the CSR (Colonial Sugar Refinery) Company last century for the pleasure of its employees and very special clients – hence the name. From its first distillation, the objective was to make the best rum possible. In 1970, Inner Circle Rum was released into the Australian market and immediately created a cult like following. Those who found the Brand, ‘’only spoke of it in whispers but sung it’s praises loudly!’ It was originally available in three strengths, Underproof, Overproof and 33% Overproof. The label was instantly recognisable by it’s coloured circle and became identified as red, green or black dot. However, in 1986, CSR sold their rum distillery interests and Inner Circle was removed from the market. A great Aussie icon disappeared. In 2000 Stuart Gilbert, an Australian Olympic Yachtsman still lamenting the loss of his favourite rum, sought out and became acquainted with Malcolm Campbell who had been responsible for the distillation and quality control of Inner Circle from 1972 to 1986 when he supervised the very last bottling. To Stuart’s delight, Malcolm was only too willing to apply his many years of experience to the task of producing a rum deserving of the Inner Circle name. Inspired by this revelation, Stuart acquired the rights to the Brand name and now offers his product to the rum lovers of the world! In 2004, Inner Circle Rum purchased the Beenleigh Rum Distillery which, after some re-engineering, has begun producing the highest quality pot still rums. The Company has also purchased Offices in the old CSR Cooperage building at Pyrmont.
Old Pascas is a premium international rum brand, the range of which combines the “best of the Caribbean” rum from Barbados and Jamaica.
After distillation, the brown variety of Old Pascas, Ron Negro, matures under the supervision of experienced cellar masters for many years in old oak casks right by the sea. This process gives it its dark golden colour, its fully aromatic flavour and its harmonious nose.
Black Barrel is a unique small-batch, hand-crafted rum created to commemorate the 310th year anniversary of Mount Gay. Like all their rums, double-pot and single column distillates are aged separately in whiskey barrels until they reach maturity. The Master Blender then mixes a higher proportion of double distillates to create this special blend. Aged again in deeply charred bourbon barrels (hence the name), adding a rich complexity and a warm, smooth finish.
Produced at Guyana’s Daimond Distillery (famous for the El Dorado range) this deep, dark little gem has been aged for at least 3 years in ex bourbon casks. Some of the seven rums in the blend are made using the distillery’s one-of-a-kind wooden stills. You’ve got to love the label artwork which is pretty much unchanged since the brand’s inception in the 1930s. If you’re into thick, heavy styles, this is considered by some as one of Guyana's better molasses-based libations
