A Superlative High-End Craft Rum Inspired by a Volcano, Sugarcane and Central America.
Ron Izalco 10-Year Rum is the Phenomenal Spirits first expression to launch in the United States. First commercialized in 2018, in Bordeaux, this 43% ABV, minimum 10-year aged rum has quickly caught on throughout Europe, expanding its footprint through France and in the UK, Denmark, and Poland.
“Curious rum drinkers and enthusiasts are very much aware of premium rums and their taste profiles, but true rum lovers are eager to move on to the next level,” explains Karthik Sudhir, founder. “They are searching for rum that is evenly balanced and less sweet with full body, complex fruity notes and a long finish. This is precisely what Ron Izalco 10 year has to offer consumers. We specifically developed the 10-year expression for sipping and to enjoy in high-end craft cocktails and signature pours.”
Ron Izalco 10 Year has received numerous awards giving testimony to the superior quality and craftmanship of the extraordinary liquid in the bottle. In 2018, Ron Izalco 10 Year won a coveted Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition followed by numerous awards in 2019 including: Double Gold & Rum Trophy at the International Spirits Challenge and Master of Rum in the Ultra-Premium category from Spirits Masters.
“At Phenomenal Spirits, we are on a very focused mission to create exceptionally high-quality spirits,” says Sudhir. “To help guide us forward, we have recently onboarded Matt Witzig, Co-founder and master distiller of Joseph Magnus Distillery. Matt is working along with me to build our next ambitious and very exciting Rye whiskey brand finished in Ron Izalco Cask, which is due to be launched in September of this year.”
Having identified a gap in the super and ultra-premium rum segments, Phenomenal Spirits set its sights on creating exceptionally high quality super-premium and ultra-premium sipping rums under the Ron Izalco umbrella. Every expression of Ron Izalco is a blend of Central America’s finest rums. Straight aged in ex-bourbon barrels in their respective distilleries, the rums are inspired by and dedicated to the people of Central America, its volcanic land and rich black soil which is best suited for growing sugar cane.
Ron Izalco 10 Year sells for a suggested retail price of $55/750ml. It is currently available in Washington DC, Maryland and Delaware through Lanterna Distributors, in California through Liberation Distribution (LibDib), in Illinois through SpiritHub and shipped to 28 states through Curiada’s E-Commerce platform.
Phenomenal Spirits is an idea, vision and an incubation platform to develop exceptionally high quality super-premium and ultra-premium spirits. The team consists of phenomenal distillers, master blenders, brand builders and marketers with an undying mission to invoke phenomenal moments for phenomenal people through phenomenal spirits.
