  • Afrikan Gold Rum is a molasses-based spirit aged in American oak. The result is an unconventionally smooth and rounded rum with a character as unique as Africa. (500ml)

    Small batch, hand crafted bespoke spirits from an idea conceived in the collective imagination of our continent, and shaped by a celestial desire to invent the future, Nihilo beats to the pulse of a new Afrika.

    Aroma: Soft caramelized molasses notes with a hint of vanilla, followed by a delicate spice bouquet. 
Taste: Subtle caramel with a warm wash of cinnamon and clove, slight oak char, balanced with a twist of citrus. 
Aftertaste: Bold notes of winter spice develops into a soft, slow and warming finish.

  • Nihilo Afrikan Gold Rum is smooth enough to sip neat or on the rocks. For a refreshing tall drink, add one part Gold Rum to four parts of either craft cola, or craft ginger beer. Top with ice and a squeeze of fresh lime.

    Phenomenal Rum

    Nihilo Rum is incredible. Smooth yet spicy, this rum has been the best for winter evenings around the fire.

    Easy drinking

    I was initially gifted a bottle of Nihilo gold by a friend who visited South Africa. What a great export and what a fantastic find! Soft on the palate with an exquisite taste! Will be coming back for more.
