Grenada Bay's boutique rum operation is based on a sustainable ethic and the entire production process takes place at their own distillery in Wellington.
Two boys from Titahi Bay, fond of the outdoor life, were wondering one day what to do with some molasses they happened to end up with. Over a beer, a craft brewer mate suggested they have a crack at making some rum. They took up the challenge with a small still he gave them.
Their efforts were well received during tastings by family and friends, so the lads upcycled some used stainless steel tanks to ferment their molasses, and then hand-built a 350-litre pot still with the help of a savvy engineer.
Now the boys needed a name for their hooch – simple enough: blend Titahi Bay with the distillery’s location in nearby Grenada North (coincidentally christened after the island group in the rum heartland of the Caribbean) and just like that – Grenada Bay Rum was born.
Grenada Bay's boutique rum operation is based on a sustainable ethic and the entire production process takes place at their own distillery in Wellington. The boys favour quality organic and locally sourced ingredients, avoiding chemicals and sweeteners. The rum distilling process itself is easy on the environment, as there is zero waste produced. This is carried through into the plant, where they upcycle metal equipment and reuse wooden barrels. The spring water they blend their rum with originates in the pure alpine wilderness of Tongariro. You get the picture.
