Makers of the finest Rum from Top Of The World, that has found a place in the hearts of people all over Nepal and beyond. Nestled under the lush, green hills of the Kathmandu Valley, awash with fresh spring waters and cool temperature, stands the Nepal Distillery Pvt. Ltd.
The story begins in 1959, in the valley of Kathmandu, a quiet home to fresh running spring waters flowing from the Himalayas.
A group of people set their hearts to starting something special, for the first time in Nepal. Mr. J.R. Contractor rallied his resources. It was time to take the production of the finest rum to an unprecedented level. But great leaps begin with humble stories. Pot stills whose designs harked back to the 1870s were brought in and people pulled their sleeves up to concoct a blend that would replenish its drinkers for years to come.
The stuff of rum, from the sugarcanes that offer the rich caramel to the pot stills, the wooden barrels to the giant oak casks have become storytellers in their own right. And they speak of times, marked by a classic blend, which we have preserved until now so that the story is told again and again.
It was in 1959 that the city of Kathmandu became home to Nepal Distillery Pvt. Ltd- one of the first distilleries established in Nepal's organised sector. In the late 1950s, Mr. J. R. Contractor tapped into what were some of the most ideal conditions to make a distinct, quality rum-the fresh spring waters of the valley and its cool temperature.
These were some of the gifts of the valley unique unto itself, to the making of a classic rum. The pure and fresh waters is essential to the quality of rum, and the ideal climate of cool temperatures facilitates a slower aging, giving you a very nuanced flavour that speaks of the beauty of time.
It is Nepal's oldest brand and is the leader of the Nepalese rum market since 1959, year after year. 'Khukri's empathy with its origin is transcendental, it transports the mind to images of the magnificent Himalayas, where nature boasts it's powerful sinews, flaky humour, and treacherous Omnipotence - the ultimate rendezvous to be re-lived again and again.'
The Nepal Distilleries Pvt.Ltd has won many awards for its delightful spirits including the London Spirits Competition 2020. This time Gold winner with 94 is Khukri XXX rum.
This award-winning rum stands as the classic rum of the Himalayas. In every sip, you will experience a history of humble traditions, expert connoisseurship, and flavours that speak to you of the ice capped mountains and the warmth it beckons.
Khukri XXX Rum carries the character of a bold beginning. Since 1959, to the very present, all that was the best still is. With the traditional and natural processes of caramelisation to the aging of the blend in homes of oak, it flows in step with the oldest operating distillery in Nepal.
Each bottle of the rum is a stamp of a classic blend, unique to the Himalayas. Smooth, full-bodied, with an elegant finish and a hint of oak, each bottle beckons the gifts of tradition, unchanging, and a character that never gets old.
