Bruno Mars releases a special owner's reserve Rum that is truly a masterclass in Rum aging and blending.

SelvaRey means “Jungle King” in Spanish. Their website lists the founders as “three brothers and Bruno Mars.” OK… you probably know who Bruno Mars is. The “three brothers” cryptically referenced are Seth and Marc Gold and their brother-in-law Robert Herzig. Seth had some success as a song writer—where he came to know Bruno Mars. Anyway… they all like Rum and decided to joint venture. Next thing you know — in the words of Bruno Mars — “Bang Bang Gorilla” a new Rum is born. But SelvaRey Rums ain’t just celebrity-endorsed marketing hype. They are premium Rums from the jungles of central Panama crafted by legendary Master Blender Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez.

Don “Pancho” Francisco Fernandez is more than a legend in the world of Rum. he has spent his entire life in the Rum busienss and is currently a master ronero at the Las Cabras Distillery in Panama. It seems that Bruno Mars wanted to make a statement, so he asked Don Pancho to blend the finest and oldest Rums in his warehouses to create and new standard for quality. When he was done, the final blend include a wide range of Rums — some aged fifteen and twenty-five years. And this new top-of-the-line SelvaRey Owner’s Reserve Rum arrives in a beautiful tapered decanter and gift-able box.

Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
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.
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.
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.’
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
