about the caribbean rum awards

Caribbean Journal first launched the Caribbean Rum Awards in 2018. Now in its third year, the CRA has become the region's most exclusive celebration of rum, focused in the heart of St Barth's capital, Gustavia.


Each year, a team of judges from the Caribbean and around the world descend upon St Barth to judge a coveted selection of the Caribbean's best rums, including "Uber-Premium" categories of rum and rhum agricole that gather the most expensive rums on the market for an unparalleled competition.  

It's all centered at the home of the Caribbean Rum Awards, Christopher Davis' Rhum Room in Gustavia, where you can find the largest selection of fine Caribbean rums on earth, including the world's largest selection of rhum agricole. 

Visitors to the Caribbean Rum Awards enjoy a full-day expo of top-level Caribbean rums, a ti-punch workshop and seminar and can purchase tickets to a gala dinner at the adjacent Quarter Kitchen and Cocktail Lab that pairs fine gastronomy with crafted cocktail pairings.

Caribbean Journal held the first-ever Caribbean Rum Awards in 2018 in Saint Lucia. Now, the Caribbean Rum Awards is coming back to its new home: the spectacular island of St Barth in 2020.

This year's Caribbean Rum Awards, held in partnership with the Rhum Room in St Barth and the Saint Barth Rum Festival, will be another celebration of the best of the rum world, with the titular rum competition stewarded by a panel of expert rum judges conducting a blind tasting of rums from across the Americas. 

The five-day festival will also include a bartending competition, a Ti' Punch happy hour, a Rum Expo to sample rums from around the region and a cigar, rum and culinary pairing dinner at the renowned Quarter Kitchen + Cocktail Lab.
