Here at CTC HQ we love any excuse to celebrate with a glass of rum and fine cigar. So we were thrilled to hear That Boutique-y Rum Company was awarded Rum Producer of the Year at the International Spirits Competition last week (jointly with Foursquare).
Not only did they scoop the top award, but also received trophies for That Boutique-y Rum Company’s Blended Rum #1, Foursquare 12 Year Old, Labourdonnais and Ableforth’s Rumbullion!
The International Spirits Challenge is the most authoritative, respected and influential spirits competition in the world, recognising key areas of the industry including Tasting and Design & Packaging.
Winning an ISC award is an impressive achievement for any spirit that passes the scrupulous blind assessment from an expert panel of specialist judges made up of over 50 world renowned experts including spirits writers, authors, Master Distillers and independent experts.
That Boutique-y Rum Company is all about bringing unusual and honest rums, which means they adopt a no BS approach to classification. Their aim is to provide a total understanding of the liquid in the bottle so you can navigate and explore the category with confidence. No confusing mumbo-rumbo, just exceptional rum.
We’ll be raising a glass of That Boutique-y rum tonight along with a celebratory cigar.
Well done to the gang at That Boutique-y Rum Company.
