WHY WE ARE THE RUM TRIBE, AND ARE WE PIRATES?
CHAPTER 1 : TWO MATES HAVING A WHISKY (WHAT?)
Even though this page is all about the Rum Tribe – we have to go back to 2005 to give you the full picture.
In early 2004, two mates would catch up on Friday nights and share a single malt whisky. Over time the boy’s love of whisky grew and the sought out different single malts to try. A few friends and family got in on this action and very soon rare and hard to get single malt whiskys were being shared, assessed and drunk. In 2005, the boys decided that they were sure that other people would like to partake in these ‘nectar of the gods’ and singlemalt.com.au was born. In 2019, the partners changed with one leaving the business and one staying on. A new partner came on board and these two mates continue to run the business. But due to the growth and the history of the business, it was decided that it needed an upgrade to better serve their members. So they re-branded to The Single Malt Whisky Club, changed their logo and invested a heap of time and money building a more streamlined and easy to use membership platform.
CHAPTER 2 : ONE WAS A PIRATE
In 2019 we had lots of The Single Malt Whisky Club members asking about rum and we were watching the growth of premium rum just like we had watched the growth of single malt whisky not be the domain of Scotland. We saw the premium end of the market become a worldwide product with both small and established distilleries producing superb rum that was incredible in its diversity, taste and very different from what we had grown up with.
One of the partners (me!) is secretly a pirate and always had a love for quality spirits, particularly rum. So we thought why could we not take our worldwide knowledge of spirits, our contacts in the industry, our subscription and membership platform and our love of rum and launch Australia’s first rum subscription club?
