On 31st July 2020 Mainbrace Navy Strength Rum (54.5% ABV) was launched to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Black Tot Day (On 31st July 1970 the Royal Navy had abolished the much-loved daily rum tot, served for 325 years to generations of naval ratings).
In March this year, Mainbrace Rum picked up two gold awards at the prestigious Rum & Cachaça Masters 2021 competition.
Chaired by The Spirits Business and a panel of leading spirits specialists, The Rum & Cachaça Masters competition is a drive to reward the finest rum and cachaça brands on the world stage. This year, the competition was extremely well-represented with 154 entries from a total of 58 different brands. Nevertheless, Mainbrace stood out amongst the judges, who commented on the notes of “sponge cake and dark chocolate” and complimented the sweetness and slight dryness of the Mainbrace Premium Golden Rum’s blend. In the case of Mainbrace Navy Strength Rum, the judges commended its distinctive “elegant nose”, “bold and silky palate” and “nice vanilla sweetness with some dryness from the wood”.
Richard Haigh, Co-Founder of Mainbrace Rum, commented:
“We’re really overwhelmed by the positive feedback and looking forward to developing the brand further over the next year.”
