Cape of Storms is a family-run Craft Rum Distillery based in Cape Town.
They have pioneered a new rum-making method in South Africa – combining old Caribbean rum-making techniques with naturally strong African blackstrap molasses.
Cape of Storms offers a variety of rum tastings and pairings, accompanied by a tour of the distillery and their rum-making process.
On the tour, visitors can taste the molasses they use to make the rum while also seeing the equipment they use. Visitors then get a choice of tasting two, or three different rums, two of which are unreleased and can exclusively be experienced at their distillery.
Every tasting is a guided experience and comes with a mixer of their choice and they offer a rum and coffee or chocolate pairing.
Cape of Storms rum includes Great White Rum, a smooth white rum that has already been released, their gin-inspired and Cape botanical-infused Spiced Rum, no yet releases, and a decadent aged rum, which has been rested in Virgin American Oak.
