A rich, award-winning Jamaican Rum from Switzerland.

John Oakley Maund was an English banker in the 1800s who had two passions — mountaineering in the Swiss Alps and Jamaican Rum. He combined the two by purchasing an estate a the base of those majestic peaks — the Villa Maund — and aging Rum in the basement. The estate passed from family to royalty to eccentric artist. and then, twenty years ago the Maund names and passion for fine Jamaican Rum was revitalized. They make only one Rum and their motto is “The Wild Alps - Alchemy Adventure.”

Even though the company was founded two decades ago, the first taste didn’t come until 2015 when a cask sample was sent to the tasting judges at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. That’s because the vision for this fine spirit was as a fully-aged and finished Rum worth sipping like a Cognac. To get that result, they age the Rum slowly in ex-Bourbon barrels for a full twelve years on the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and then finish it for several more months in local Swiss Wine casks.

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).
