A Gold Medal winning Rum from Okinawa made in a copper-pot still so it retains a memory of where it came from.

BBC Wine and Spirits was founded in 2010 by Bogdan Tonasiou and Bertrand Fradin as a Wine exporter. But the company soon blossomed into the distribution of a wide range of Spirits covering virtually every category and ultimately in creating their own brands as well. Located in Bordeaux, France, they now sell into more than thirty countries with an emphasis on North America and Europe.

The Tokyo Nights brand was launched by BBC in 2020. Tokyo Nights Rum is and un-aged Spirit that forms the core of the three product lineup — all of which are created on the island of Okinawa. It’s made from 100% locally grown sugarcane molasses and distilled in a copper-pot still — a far cry from the massive steel monstrosities used by the industrial-scale producers. And that means that a lot of the natural grassiness and exotic fruit notes remain behind to make your taste buds happy.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.

You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.

If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
