Here are some of the award-winning rums from our latest blind tasting

Every year, The Spirits Business hosts its Rum Masters competition, which seeks to award the highest-quality bottlings in the category.

The Rum Masters 2021 was held virtually for the first time due to lockdown restrictions in the UK, with bottles shipped to the judges’ homes anonymously by Wine Sorted.

The competition was judged by Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business and Tobias Gorn, spirits specialist, consultant and writer, over Zoom last month.

From spiced to flavoured, agricole to overproof, the competition saw 13 products secure the highest award of a Master medal.
