Available in a wide variety of expressions, with offerings to suit every budget, this round-up is sure to convert even the hardiest spirits traditionalists to the ‘sugar side’.

Last month, The Spirits Business held its annual Rum Masters, where an experienced panel of judges uncovered and recognised some of the category’s best expressions available on the global market.

Looking across multiple categories, from Standard to Super Premium, Gold Rum to Agricole, with entrants from producers of all scales, the competition saw a number of rum brands awarded medals for their superior quality.

While the individual scores of each entrant are not disclosed, these are 10 of the highest ranking medalists recognised in the competition, listed in no particular order.

Readers may notice that not all of these bottlings are standard priced, but have been judged to offer excellent quality to consumers within their respective price categories.
