In Detail

Ord River Rum is made from local sugar cane, Wet Season rainwater and yeast that is all vat fermented, pot distilled, aged in Oak barrels and hand bottled. We age our Rum in 300 liter Oak barrels which naturally colours and flavours our Rum, resulting in a very smooth tropical flavour with an oaky finish. As you may have heard since the sugar mill shut down in Kununurra, we no longer have access to the excess molasses to make our rum. So Spike; being the ever-resourceful person that he is; travelled to Columbia at the beginning of 2009 to look into cane crushing processes there. So we imported a cane crusher from Columbia and The Hoochery now has 3 hectares of sugar cane under plantation on the farm, which is hand cut and crushed to make a sugar syrup which is now the base product of all of our products. Tours of the still are run daily.
