What makes Man Up Rum different?

Man Up rum 55% is distinguished from most other rums, not just because of its surprisingly wonderful taste, not just because it is the first single batch, hand-crafted, wood-fire pot-stilled Navy Style / overproof #rum ever produced in South Africa, not just because it is a pure, organic #rum, and not just because it is an unblended, unflavoured, uncoloured and unfiltered #rum, but because –

Man Up rum's recipe was formulated with the assistance of a South African scientist at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), who did his PhD on molasses, to produce the best #rum we possibly can;

*This means that Man Up Rum is not aged in old whisky or wine barrels, but rather in fresh, unused oak, instead.

"Make the best product you can and sell it at the lowest price that you can afford."

The History Behind South Africa's Man Up Rum

Prins Distilleries was founded by its CEO, Johan P.C. Prinsloo.

Being exclusively a #rum drinker himself, he set out to make a real #rum, a pure, unblended, unadulterated #rum.

It was not an easy task. Everything inside the distillery was made by himself with his own hands. All the welding, all the steel work, all the wood work were done by himself without help, because he can.

To this day Man Up rum 55% is made by him personally, which is why the distillery can only produce a limited number of bottles of Man Up rum per month.

He makes the washes himself, he personally does the distilling to make sure that everything is done according to his standards and his formula. Besides doing all the hard labour, he also does all the bottling, labeling, shipping and administration of Man Up rum himself.

He set out to make the best #rum he could at a price most can afford. Tasting a real #rum, like Man Up rum 55%, sets a new standard in the taste buds.

Man Up rum 55% is hand-crafted by #rum lovers for discerning #rum lovers who know what they want at a price most people can afford.
