Starting-up Rum Production

Recommended Posts

I'm a chef here in Singapore and I run my own catering company for fine dining. I've been interested in using the sugar-cane resources from Malaysia and Indonesia to start up the 1st Rum Production in Singapore.

Having travelled to Cuba twice and tasted the sweet nectar of Havana Club Anejo, who can go back from drinking anything else but rum. And since rum 1st came from my part of the world and then brought over to the carribean, I feel its about time I start an International Brand of Rum that originating and distilled in Singapore, or Malaysia.

Any of you out there:

1) Know about rum production on a mass scale, harvesting, distilling, logistics, bottling?

2) Come from Singapore or Malaysia and are interested in coming aboard?

3) Can point me in the right direction to get some professional help

4) Know how to contact the Cuban government about setting up some kind of mutual benifit business development deal?

Eng, I have to admire your ambition. But to think that any Caribbean nation is going to help you compete with them overlooks the basics of capitalism.

Since there is no commercial sugar cane grown on Singapore you would have to work with molasses imported from the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia or Viet Nam.

I'm sure you've tried the Thai rum, which is sometimes labeled as whisky or other liquors. I'd suggest talking to Asian distillers and going from there.

Ed. out of interest do you know where Khukri get their molasses from? I am pretty sure that no cane is grown in Nepal :blink:

My first guess is India since it shares a border with India. It is interesting that the Khukri website doesn't give any clues. I'll have to ask around.

We might have one of our outside directors who has experience in setting up rumdistilleries in for this. Please sent an e-mail to info@ea-scheer.com
