The Fijian islands are renowned for their pure water, nourishing the sugarcane growing in rich volcanic soils. The sugarcane is hand-cut and distilled into rum, then filtered through coconut shell carbon to capture the taste of Fiji. Bati rums are aged for 2 years and the Ratu Rums from 5 to 8 years. The result is a range of deliciously smooth, internationally award-winning rums from paradise on earth.

RUM Co. of Fiji has been proudly crafting world-class, award-winning rums since 1980 at their distillery in Lautoka, Fiji.

Tale of Origin

Fiji - A word that evokes thoughts of soft white beaches, warm sea air, rich culture, heritage and tradition.

After first establishing a flexible brand hierarchy and style, they worked with a Fijian tattoo artist to create a series of graphics that would bring the story of Bati (Fijian Warriors) and Ratu (Fijian Chiefs) to life.

The result is a range of beautifully crafted, iconic packaging that stimulates the senses, immediately stands out on shelf, and is now exported all over the world.
