Launched in October 2015, Matugga Spiced Rum is triple pot-distilled from fermented (for 7 days) East African sugar-cane molasses and aged in uncharred English oak casks to produce a golden rum which is then combined with a blend of African black tea, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and cardamom.
