“Let’s start a band, no really, we should start a band!”…“I bet I can jump across that…”…“This isn’t rum! I bet we could make better rum than this! Seriously, how hard could it be?”…This was the red “cool-drink”, flavoured methanol (the stuff that makes you blind) induced conversation we, the brothers, had that started a journey that took us to the Moonshine University (Really! Our certificates are up in the distillery) and on a search to find the best rum distilleries in the world. Today, Lon is our Master Distiller and Trev makes things look pretty. We took the leap to create a rum that is authentically African, made by Africans, for Africans. Don’t be afraid to whistle your own tune, we aren't.
The distillery is home to a world class rum distillery and a events venue with a ever increasing following in the Northern Free State. We have successfully hosted everything from distillery open days (Every Friday and Saturday), to markets and music events with glowing reviews on both Facebook and Google. Any event at Whistler rum is one that will be remembered!
