Coruba

Coruba is a brand of Jamaican rum owned by the J. Wray & Nephew company. It was developed for the New Zealand market, and was first exported there in 1967. It is distilled from molasses in a combination of pot and column stills, and aged in a solera system for at least two years. 

Coruba is a complex rum blended from over thirty different producers. They make a wide range of rums, some of which are difficult to find. Their basic line is a dark rum that is aged in heavily charred barrels and has caramel coloring added to it, and a non-colored "Gold" version, which are both 80 proof. They also make a 148 proof "overproof" rum, and a 12, 18 and 25 year old expression. Finally, Coruba has branched out into flavored rums, with a spiced variation, mango, pineapple, and coconut. 

The dark and gold versions of Coruba are great for mixing Tiki drinks.
