In 2018, the face of the rum industry is now changing as bars step up their rum game and it becomes the new boutique gin. <br /> <br />Following the steps of whiskey and tequila, rum is becoming the latest spirit on the cusp of premiumisation.

Añejo Cuatro (“four” in Spanish paying homage to the brand’s Cuban roots), is a premium rum barrel-aged, undisturbed under the Caribbean sun, for a minimum of four years. It has flavours of mild vanilla, toasted oak, clove and honey. <br /> <br />The film explores Bryce’s thoughts on the rum industry, the spirit’s complexity and the change in culture as rum moves to a heightened sophistication.
