Local distiller taking the rum world by storm
The Danish rum producer Skotlander snagged two gold medals and its Skotlander White Rum was awarded the best in class designation at the Miami Rum Festival, the world’s largest.
Over 130 rums from around the world were sampled in the blind taste tests in Miami.
“When Skotlander White Rum was named Best in Class for white rums, we celebrated all the way up to the stage,” Anders Skotlander told Ekstra Bladet. “We had not expected anything and were totally shocked.”
A clear winner
Skotlander’s first white rum, the cleverly-named Rum I, won a gold medal at last year’s Miami Rum Festival and also won awards at similar gatherings in New York, Madrid, San Francisco and London.
The rum that was named Best in Class this year is called Skotlander White Rum, a new version of Rum I.
