Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum

Indian Spice!  

Love it or hate it, you certainly can’t ignore it! The strikingly presented Wild Tiger rum with its orange fur screams ‘look at me’. And the team behind Wild Tiger rum sure as hell can’t be accused of being lazy in their work ethic – Wild Tiger rum is one of the fastest growing rums in terms of availability I know of. Unsurprisingly perhaps, the brand is looking to take advantage of the continued rise in popularity of Spiced Rum and have released: Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum; a Spiced Rum that draws on the fact that India is the epicentre of so many exotic spices.

Wild Tiger India Spiced RumIn a relatively short space of time, Wild Tiger rum can be found in some 17 countries (some of which are Denmark, France, Austria, Belgium, Romania, Germany, Cyprus and the Czech Republic) and in a number of travel retail locations around the world. They are certainly not resting on their haunches either, Wild Tiger Rum is looking to grow distribution globally to 40 countries in 2017 and I’m sure this release will help. It’s not often you get to sip a Spiced Rum that’s as dry as this, and I can’t help but feel it’s got plenty of cocktail appeal. 
Dressed in red fur, the India Spiced Rum is perhaps even more difficult to miss than its brother.
Press Release: The first premium rum brand from India - Wild Tiger is all set to launch a second variant 'Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum' which is Asia’s very first Premium Spiced Rum given its exotic blend of Indian Spices and exquisite packaging.
Predominantly a molasses-based rum made with rich flavours of the Malabar coast - the ancient hub of the spice trade, the drink has exotic Indian flavours of Cardamom, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Licorice, Black Pepper, Ginger, Cassia Bark, Orange Peel, Forest Honey and a secret Tea extract fused into the Rum. 
Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum has been previewed at leading trade events including BCB, UK Rumfest with very encouraging feedback. The Spiced Rum is naturally flavoured, intensely aromatic and truly Rumtastic with absolutely no artificial additives at all. 
An original spiced rum from India has been long overdue, considering the lure of these exotic Indian spices has led to historic explorations, wars and conquests dating back to 7000 years ago, while the country continues to retain its stature as the Spice Bowl of the World. And Gautom Menon, believes that spiced rum from Asia could very well be the definitive rum in this category considering its provenance.
Signature cocktails such as ‘The Royal Bengal Tiger’ and the ‘Malabar Tiger’ curated by leading mixologists will hit Cocktail Bars and Indian Restaurants in the UK and across Europe when Wild Tiger India Spiced Rum roars into the market in March.
