Tortuga Five Year Old Gold Rum and Tortuga 12 Year Old Gold Rum recently received honours in the Rum Masters 2010 tasting challenge held by Europe’s leading spirits trade magazine ‘The Spirits Business’.
Tortuga Five Year Old Rum received the highest level awarded, the title of ‘Master’ in the Gold Less than Seven Years category. Tortuga Twelve Year Old Rum received Gold in the Gold Eight to 12 Year category.
The annual Spirits Masters Awards are conducted by The Spirits Business, the only international trade title solely dedicated to the global spirits business. The rum category was added in 2009 to this highly respected industry competition, with the 2010 Rum Masters winners announced in the April issue of The Spirits Business.
“We are delighted that our aged rums were so successful in this prestigious international competition,” says Robert Hamaty, founder of the Tortuga Rum Company, Ltd. “These are exquisite sipping rums. We invite everyone to experience our award winning rums.”
