Aussie Company Wins Gold For Its Rums

Posted by Josette Dunn on 21st June 2010

100% Australian owned Kinkynero Dark Rum and Kinkylux White Rum, produced by the makers of Vodka O (ASM Liquor), are proving they are up there with the best, taking out Gold in their rum categories at the 2010 World Spirit Awards in Europe.


Kinkynero and Kinkylux were up against more established global rum brands and it was very much a David versus Goliath battle as the Aussie owned spirits were awarded Gold in the dark and white rum categories. Competing against over 1,000 brands from around the world, the gold medal wins are yet another accolade for the burgeoning Aussie-based brand.

Kinkynero is a rich dark Carribbean rum which has been barrel aged for more than two years. It features subtle undertones of cocoa, vanilla and raisins.  Kinkylux is a light bodied white rum made from the finest Caribbean sugar cane.

Other wins for ASM Liquor include Double Gold for Tequila Blu at the two most prestigious spirit tasting awards in the world – the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the 2010 World Spirit Awards in Europe.

Kinkynero and Kinkylux’s Gold medals are a win for rum aficionados everywhere and proves that Australia can produce a top-quality rum that can beat the more established brands.
