THE ZULU RUM STORY
The first local rum produced from the sugar cane in KwaZulu-Natal. The idea for Zulu Rum first occurred to Clinton Wyness when travelling through the rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal which were blanketed in sugar cane. He thought it strange that the province did not have its own rum knowing that most other sugar producing areas, such as Mauritius, the Caribbean and Australia all had a flourishing rum industry. Clinton approached a close friend Wayne Oliver who is now partner in Zulu Rum. Wayne supported the idea from beginning and allocated resources for the research. So began the story of Zulu Rum.
The Rum is available in three smooth varieties. Zulu Rum: a clear rum, light in flavour. Great to use in cocktails and particularly suited for mixing with fruit juices. Zulu Gold Rum: gold in colour with a raisin flavour that mixes well with and cola or lemonade. Zulu Impi Rum: a Dark Rum with a woody flavour for those who prefer the more traditional rum and cola. There has been great interest in the product shown from South Africa, the United Kingdom, Europe, United States of America and Asia. Due to local regulations Zulu Rum is likely to be exported before it is available to the South African market.
