    Great rum

    Elegant flavours of vanilla and caramel from the bourbon cask ageing. Great for fancy tasty cocktails and as a companion whilst attacking trade ships on the high seas to shiver ya timbers. Arrgh!!

    Amazing Dark Rum!!

    I'm a huge fan of rum, dark rum specifically. There are so many good choices out there but Afrikanis has become my absolute favourite! I love the combination of flavours which gives it such a unique taste. The story of the brand is also really awesome and I love the dog logo on the bottle.
