Banks 5 Island


Banks 5 Island takes its name from Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist and naturalist who sailed with Captain Cook, discovering weird and wonderful things across the Caribean. As such, this white rum is a blend from five distilleries, each aged between three and twelve years then filtered to remove the colour. The rums are from Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana, with the intriguing addition of some Batavia Arrack from Java.

As you’d expect, Banks 5 Island Blend is a pure, dry, flavorful white rum blend with unprecedented complexity, character and depth, making it best served over rocks. That said, it has many accolades for being the best rum to use in a daiquiri, mojito, or maitai.
