Rum is the drink of the moment and Mahiki has jumped on the band wagon. The world famous Mayfair club, has created its own range of premium rums in an attempt to tap into the fast growing market for exotic cocktails.
Mahiki's blend of rums was created by Papa Jules, who manages the tiki themed rum bar at the Mayfair club. Each blend of Mahiki rum has its unique flavour. Distilled, blended and bottled in Barbados (the world's oldest rum producing island) the line consists of three different rums, Mahiki white rum, Mahiki Gold rum and Mahiki cognac cask rum.
While there are some who may wonder whether Mahiki isn't getting too big for their boots with an own label range, there is no doubt that Mahiki, famed for the super indulgent Treasure Chest cocktail knows this business. However, it will still have its work cut out to dominate the flurry of new high quality brands such as Elimates 8, which have hit the market at the same time.
Why not decide for yourself. At present they're exclusively available in Selfridges but are expanding to further outlets in the autumn.
