One of the world's unsung rum producing nations is the tiny Island Paradise of Fiji. Opened in 1980 by the Fijian Sugar Co. to take advantage of the great amount of molasses left over from the large refining business on the island. The South Pacific Distilleries became renowned for providing bulk rum for many of the finest independent rum bottlers in Europe and after the distillery's products won countless rum awards, Master of Rum Liam Costello, decided that they should be marketing their own products to the world. They cut off all bulk contracts, save for the ones owned by Plantation, and resigned themselves to creating a line of super premium rums. The Bati range, meaning warrior in Fijian, is a no nonsense dark rum aged stated at 2 years old, but with rums much closer to 5 years inside. This rum is a pot heavy blend with no additives at all. Dry and funky but not overwhelming, Bati should always be in the running when trying to choose the right heavy rum for your drink but is soft enough to sip straight or on the rocks. An excellent addition to our ever-expanding portfolio of high quality additive free rums. From the Producer: " Bati [bah-ti] were the fearsome Fijian warriors and protectors of their homeland. The Fijian islands are renowned for their pure water, nourishing the sugar cane growing in rich volcanic soil. The hand-cut sugar cane is distilled into rum then filtered through coconut shell carbon to capture the taste of Fiji. Double Gold medal at the 2019 SFWSC."
