Aluna Toasted Coconut Rum

The Tropics in a glass.

Aluna Toasted Coconut RumAluna Toasted Coconut Rum was born when three surfing friends discussed their love for great rums and the prospect of making one with fresh, natural ingredients. They wanted to distil something a little different without the over-sweet profile of most traditional rums.

Their first presentation in their now-established range was a classic all-natural toasted coconut rum, made with premium rums from Guatemala and the Caribbean with pure, sustainably sourced coconut water giving a lighter spirit than most rums available in shops and online. The bottle is slender and sports an attractive blue, white and gold label with a stylised moon mandala as a salute: Aluna means ‘to the moon’.

The base Guatemalan rum is made with first-press sugar cane fermented with a unique yeast from the pineapple plant.  This creates an exotic yet light and smooth rum with a delicate sweet edge. Added to this are selected young Caribbean rums to give that familiar richness without the layers of syrup.

Aluna Coconut Rum is a summer winner. It makes the perfect sipping rum simply served over ice. The coconut flavour shines through without the sugary mouth-coating element present in many other rums. It works when entertaining a crowd on hot (we hope) evenings. It’s lovely with pineapple juice, as one would expect, and a little sparkling water to create a long and refreshing libation. Garnish with a cube of fruit on a skewer and a little mint. Try as a Daiquiri for a classic cocktail with a twist.
