Penny Blue XO Batches - created in small batches, each one with its own personality, Penny Blue rum is matured on the estate and is, by definition, rare and finite. Every batch is unique although there is continuity in overall style to retain the rich, smooth, fruity complexity that makes this single estate Rum a real expression of its Mauritian terroir. 

Medine Distillery was established in 1926. The oldest distillery on the island, Medine is a Single Estate Distillery, growing, distilling and ageing its own rum. In 2009 the Indian Ocean Rum Company is created. The new company marks a joint collaboration between Medine Distilery and Berry Bros.

Penny Blue XO Batch #1 is released in 2013, 5,900 bottles of the inaugural rum, XO #001 was released to critical acclaim. Penny Blue VSOP is released in 2017, a younger expression that provides the hallmark of Penny Blue’s style. Penny Blue Pure Cane is released in 2018, Medine's first rum produced with sugar cane juice, Pure Cane is a true expression of our terroir.

The name Penny Blue is derived from a Mauritian legend, the Penny Blue stamp. Created as part of the inaugural postal service, in 1847, under the watchful eye of the Governor of Mauritius, the stamp was to be used for invitations to a fancy dress ball held by the Governor’s wife. The engraver rushed to the Post Office to talk with the Postmaster. On arriving, he read the sign ‘Post Office’ and took it to be the correct inscription for the postal stamps. It was only after printing that the engraver’s mistake was discovered. The inscription should have read ‘Post Paid’ as with UK stamps. With only 500 produced, its rarity has made it one of the most expensive stamps in the world. Each Penny Blue stamp was hand printed, giving them a unique fingerprint, which is mirrored in our Single Estate’s influence on our rum.
