Harold & Hansa
Harold & Hansa Ltd. has a mission to turn the spotlight on lesser known, premium quality rums from Madeira. Using exceptional varieties of sugarcane and a meticulous production process, Madeira creates some of the best rums in the world. Co-founder Harold is from this beautiful Portuguese island and his family has been involved in the rum trade for many years.
Harold & Hansa’s current selection of rums is distilled at Engenhos do Norte, on the north-side of the island of Madeira. The distillery recently celebrated its centenary and is the only distillery in Europe still to use steam as its driving force. All the rums are Agricole Rums, meaning they are distilled from fresh sugarcane juice (not molasses, which is a by-product from sugar refining).
Among the handpicked selection, some of the rums have been awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at many of the largest International spirit competitions. Several other rums are Limited Editions and only made in small batches, making them a perfect addition to any rum enthusiast’s collection.

A versatile liqueur, Amarula is best served over ice but can also be enjoyed with hot chocolate or coffee and in a wide variety of divine cocktails.
