The Cargo Cult is inspired by a modern mythology amongst South Pacific islanders that the heavens will open with an endless supply of cargo, just as they did during the Second World War when supplies were airdropped for the incoming US troops soon to land on their shores.
Although 70 years have passed, the legend lives on amongst some islanders still hoping for the mythical cargo to re-appear on the horizon. In the meantime, we have this rum to sip and enjoy as we wait patiently…
Cargo Cult’s exceptionally well-balanced, small-batch spiced rums are made with a blend of aged spirits from the tropical islands of Papua New Guinea and Fiji, before being skilfully blended, spiced and bottled in Australia.
Made without the addition of any sugar, these perfectly crafted beauties stand out from just about every other spiced rum on the market.
Cargo Cult Banana
An interesting expression from Australia's Cargo Cult range, which has been flavoured with bananas from North Queensland, alongside a selection of lip-smacking spices. This should make a great daiquiri.
Fruity esters kick things off, with brown sugar caramelising in a pan, earthy vanilla pod and a handful of cinnamon sticks following on. Green apple, stem ginger and buttery biscuits. Dry spices linger on the finish, with a final hint of banana fritter.
