EKTE - The Formula of a Curious Spirit
Go for real quality when making cocktails or long drinks. This luxurious light rum is a blend of a fresh Trinidadian column still rum and a touch of fresh Jamaican pot still, occupying the inside of a barrel together with a Barbados blend up to 5 years old. Don’t forget to inhale the lovely grassy notes from the younger pot still rum and enjoy the harmonies of vanilla and caramel. This stems from a fusion with light roasted American virgin oak, which also provides the fantastic golden hue.
The EKTE Spiced & Rich is a fabulously crafted spiced rum, made especially for the lovers of long drinks. This unique expression consists of fresh Trinidadian column still rum and a fresh Jamaican pot still, which have been set to marry with a Barbados blend of up to 5 years, before being infused with EKTE´s own organic Bourbon vanilla rum distillate.

This has been set to marry with a Guyanese pot still rum blend, a lovely fresh Jamaican pot still rum and an older exclusive Barbados blend, which is up to 8 years of age. No sugar is added. All this joy has been infused with the natural sweetness of medium roasted American oak to give the EKTE Aged & Geeky its characteristic hints of vanilla and caramel in a slightly spicier version.
The EKTE Pungent & Geeky is our exquisite edition of a full bodied high-end aged rum, one that probably speaks to all rum geeks due to its intense expression.
