Mainbrace has picked up several gold and silver awards for its Navy Strength Rum and gold and bronze awards for its Premium Golden range
Nearly two years since its launch in October 2019, Mainbrace Rum has picked up numerous awards in 2021 international spirits competitions, including:
- A double gold award (Navy Strength) and a gold (Premium Golden) at the San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition 2021
- A gold for both Navy Strength and Premium Golden rums at the Rum & Cachaça Masters 2021 competition, chaired by The Spirits Business
- A gold for the Navy Strength Rum at the World Rum Awards
- A silver (Navy Strength) and bronze (Premium Golden) at the London Spirits Competition 2021.
Mainbrace stood out amongst the judges of the Rum & Cachaça Masters competition, 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”.
At the World Rum Awards, judges commended Mainbrace Navy Strength Rum for being “softer than expected on the palate with notes of pear followed by strong tropical fruits of mango and melon” and for its “well-integrated flavours and fitting ABV”. They went on to comment on Mainbrace Premium Golden Rum, noting its “rounded palate with pronounced honeycomb and melon alongside a spicy undercurrent” and “overall complex flavour with grassier notes coming through”.
Richard Haigh, Co-Founder of Mainbrace Rum, commented: “We’re pleased to see our hard work paying off at this years’ competitions and have been overwhelmed by the judges’ positive feedback.”
