Overproof rum is category of rum with a higher percentage of alcohol than regular rum. There are several stories on why it is called overproof and what exactly overproof means. Gun Powderproof, British overproof and American overproof are all different in ABV, but fall between 50% and 58%. Next to that you have some unaged Jamaican overproof rums which are mostly around 63% abv.
Rummieclub Overproof rum has an alcohol percentage of 58%. We tried several different ABV’s and we liked the 58% best, it opens up the rum just enough to reveal its base flavour profile. At higher ABV’s it is difficult to smell what you are actually going to taste when you try the rum.
Every edition of Rummieclub rum has an artwork on the frontlabel which is made by a different local (graffiti) artist. The artwork on this label is made by Munir de Vries, a local visual artist and muralist. The label represents animals getting drunk from overripe fruits.
