The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the first comprehensive, international spirits judging ever held in the United States on an annual basis. This year, the Competition celebrates its 10th year of awarding spirit excellence.  Held at the Hotel Nikko located in downtown San Francisco on March 13th and 14th, the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition's expert panel of judges conducted blind taste tests, awarding medals based on taste alone. Results were announced Tuesday, March 16th.

Tommy Bahama Rum is made in Barbados at the legendary R. L. Seale Distillery.  R. L. Seale has been crafting rum for more than eighty years and four generations, and their experience shows in every elegant bottle of Tommy Bahama.  Tommy Bahama Rum's two delightfully distinct flavors, Tommy Bahama White Sand and Tommy Bahama Golden Sun, are both made with the finest blackstrap molasses and the cleanest, clearest water naturally filtered through coral stone.  Tommy Bahama Rums are fermented using specially selected yeast imported from the wine-growing regions of South Africa. 

Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum is aged a minimum of two years in American white oak barrels.  A clear, light-bodied rum, White Sand has a smooth entry and clean finish with hints of tangy, tropical fruit.  Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum is a blend of rums aged up to ten years in American white oak barrels.  A full-bodied, amber rum, Golden Sun has an elegant, fruity nose and a taste nuanced with hints of coffee, roasted nuts, and sweet pralines.  Tommy Bahama Rums have no added sugar or artificial blenders.
