Tipple Tuesday! 10 Cane Rum & Tales of the Cocktail

10 cane Rum - New Look

New Bottle Shape

10 Cane now comes in a stunning square bottle. Listening to our customers’ feedback, we’ve made changes that respond to their needs.

First press cane juice, small batch double distillation, French oak barrel aging, and expert rum-making craftsmanship are the key elements of 10 Cane. Through the addition of a touch of extra old rum, the blend is round, smooth and complex. 10 Cane is more versatile and exciting than ever!

10 Cane is what rum is meant to be: light and smooth yet flavorful. Whether you enjoy it neat, on ice, or as a base in your favorite cocktail, 10 Cane will always deliver.
