Wray & Nephew

Notes: Pineapple, overripe banana, light vegetal funk and a hint of brown sugar dominate this fragrant rum.

Finish: Like the palate, it leads off-dry and slightly bitter, like a potent coffee or dark chocolate, before fading into lighter notes of fruit and coconut. The aftertaste is long and lingering.

Featured in our This is the Wray cocktail and our Ting Wray bomb, or if you’re feeling daring, order it neat for a shot of the good stuff.


Sagatiba Cristalina is made with a modern and innovative distillation process (the first brand to produce this way!). ​The result is a pure, crystalline liquid, which fits well with any cocktail, including the traditional caipirinha.

Want to stick with tradition? Order with a tropical or spicy caipirinha!
