The Island Rum Company was established in 2012 in Norway by three passionate entrepreneurs and innovators. The idea was to combine local influence and networks in Cuba with deep international drinks industry experience to bring to global markets unique new and existing Cuban rum Brands. We are building on the current fascination with Cuba and the reputation of Cuba as the home of rum. We are combining the deep traditions of Cuban rum making and with innovation and progressive thinking in product development.
