The Flying Dutchman Rum

The Flying Dutchman Rum is hand crafted in the traditional craft distillery that is owned and operated by the Zuidam Family. More than 50 years of experience in distilling of exclusive spirits and a constant search for perfection has led to the birth of this exquisite rum.

The Flying Dutchman rum is the very first rum ever to be distilled on mainland Europe. It is distilled from a very pure sugar cane molasses.


Fermentation is done in very small batches. Two different strains of yeast and controlled low temperature fermentation contribute to the very fruity character of these rums. The fermentation takes at least two weeks. That is exceptionally long but essential in the formation of the delicate flavors of these rums.


After the slow fermentation the rum is distilled three times in small handmade copper pot stills. It is only after the third distillation that the rum is exactly as we want it. We know that our method of hands on distillation in our small pot stills is more costly and slower than the for rum more customary large-scale industrial column distillation. However we feel that our method although less efficient yields a better more balanced rum with an exceptional fruity character and an unrivaled mouth feel.


After our careful and time-consuming distillation we age the rum in small casks.
