Akal Chai Rum is a unique drink from the West Indies with strong ties to India. Cue the trailblazing tea-rum.

In the world of spirits, novelties come and go, but truly revolutionary ideas stick. The founder of Akal Rum, Kiran Shiva Akal, comes from a rich background of tea and perfume-making. He set out to create a super-premium spirit-hybrid combining the two. The idea came after discovering a Dutch admiral who existed sometime during the historic Europe - India trade, which leaves a pretty wide gap. Still, at least we know it’s sometimes after 1500. Nonetheless, Kiran’s imagination was sparked, and the exquisite Rum made of tea through the lens of perfumes was (eventually) born.

Starting with single-estate teas from India that are masterfully married with tropical flowers and limited reserve Rum from the West Indies, then aged in ex-Bourbon barrels. It’s a solid sipper holding its own against any highly regarded spirit, if not more. It’s partially produced in Europe, India, and the West Indies, making it - ‘The world distilled in a glass.’

Make sure to pick one up and spice up your life.

Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
