Save the Tiger – drink rum
Wild Tiger Rum is conceptualized and owned by Indian drinks entrepreneur Mr. Gautom Menon. Made in Kerala, South India, the brand is not only unique in terms of each of its handcrafted bottles bearing unique tiger stripes, but also the idea and the cause that it supports make it even more special. The first Wild Tiger Rum was launched at UK Rumfest in 2015.
As a part of its core CSR policy – the Wild Tiger brand donates 10% profits towards Tiger Conservation in Southern India where they have set up their own non-profit initiative called WTF (Wild Tiger Foundation). WTF works with other established wildlife establishments and prominent Tiger experts to save the tiger and its habitat in Southern India. Besides that, each bottle is unique and a work of handcrafted packaging by empowered village women as Wild Tiger believes in fostering women’s development and equal opportunities.
Flavour profile: Wild Tiger Rum
This is India’s very first Super Premium Rum given its exotic blend. It is predominately a column distilled molasses spirit, which is aged in charred American Oakwood Casks and harmoniously blended with a small percentage of pure cane spirit making it a unique aromatic and dark amber coloured Rum. The taste profile contains hints of vanilla, toasted wood and caramel on the nose. You feel smoothness with prominent undertones of molasses, almond and slight oak notes on the palate. It is medium bodied with a complexity of aromas and flavours with a lingering aftertaste. On the nose, it is sweet like Bailey and candy. Right from the sourcing of the finest ingredients involved in rum production, to ensuring the quality of the final product, every aspect has been devotedly carried out to perfection so that you can Relish Responsibly.
Wild Tiger is the brain child of drinks entrepreneur Gautom Menon, a rum aficionado and Tiger enthusiast. The brand is independently owned (Wild Tiger Beverages). Gautom’s ambition to create the brand is based on the fact that India is one of the largest producers and consumers of rum but still they do not have a single premium rum reflected on global stage. Gautom Menin saw an opportunity to create an indigenous rum brand which one could truly “Pour with Pride” and represent their urban aspirations, hence Wild Tiger was born.
Wild Tiger Rum is made in Kerala, South India. It is a unique and exotix blend using both sugar cane distillates, molasses and sugar cane juice. The cane juice distillate is added to give the rum a distinct profile and also at same time to honour the tradition, because when the first distillation of sugar cane was done in ancient Indian it was made like an agricole and not mainly molasses as it is today
Corporate Social Responsibility) is in the nature of the brand:
Only 2200 Tigers remain in the Indian forests. This figure is down from 10.000 Tigers in a century ago and 40.000 six decades ago in 1947. Therefore, the brand donates 10% of profits towards Tiger Conservation in South India via Wild Tiger Foundation.
Every single bottle is unique. The velvet tiger fabric sleeve on the bottle is made by local Indian women to give them an opportunity to achieve independence.
