IN THE LATE 1800S, A LEGENDARY GROUP OF INTELLECTUALS DEVELOPED A PREDICTIVE CARD-COUNTING ALGORITHM CALLED THE FORTUNA SCRIPT.
USING THEIR TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE, THESE FREE-THINKERS BEAT THE HOUSE AND BROUGHT DOWN THE CASINO BARONS OFTHE TIME.
EMBODYING THE SPIRIT AND INDIVIDUALITY OF THOSE WHO DARED TO THINK DIFFERENTLY MORE THAN A CENTURY AGO, FORTUNA SCRIPT BLENDED RUM REWARDS TO THOSE DISCERNING INDIVIDUALS SMART ENOUGH TO DO THE SAME TODAY.
Long and smooth, rich cream and milk chocolate notes with a rounded, caramel and fruit flavor that seems to last forever.
Light heat gives way to ice cream sweetness with raisins, sultanas and vanilla, slightly oily with a backbone of warm, mulling-like spice notes: cinnamon, cloves, allspice.
Stone fruits, deep demerara sugar sweetness, light candied orange peel with soft spice notes such as cinnamon and pink pepper.
Whilst our original golden Fortuna Script ‘Rum and Reason’ is our most popular iteration, providing a smooth, sippable, lightly spiced rum with its distinctive dried fruit notes, it was recognised that there was room for a slightly darker, stronger, spiced option.
As a result, the 43% version was launched in 2022, and provides a different flavour profile with a warmer feel and more accented spice notes that linger in the mouth.
Some say it is best enjoyed neat as it retains the smooth enjoyment characteristics of our original golden rum. However, In partnership with its greater strength, Fortuna 43 offers a more committed experience.
News: Fortuna 43 was entered into the Scottish Retail Food and Drink Awards 2022, and received a coveted Gold Medal, making it the highest rated rum of all those tested.
A white rum like nothing else on the market, set to challenge preconceptions about white rum with its depth of flavour and versatility.
All Fortuna rums only use natural spices and flavours, and this is no exception, with the initial deep grapefruit freshness perfectly balanced by the late but subtle coconut tones, this is both a refreshing and rounded rum experience.
Whilst enjoyable over ice on a hot summers day, it lends itself to a range of fruit mixers, sodas and tonics for longer refreshing drinks. Perfect for a Mohito with a difference, or just add to cola with a splash of lime for a great Cuba Libre with a twist.
Don’t just do G&T; think again and try a G&C!
News: also launched in 2022, the Fortuna G&C was awarded a bronze medal at the Scottish Food and Drink Awards to recognise its disruptive innovation.
OUR FOUNDERS MR H AND MR J HAVE USED THEIR MANY YEARS OF TRAVELLING IN THE CARIBBEAN, SOUTH AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA TO DEVELOP A RANGE OF OFFERINGS.
Our Founders Mr H and Mr J were asked how they would suggest you try our Golden offerings. They both agreed neat but then took different views.
Mr H went for a heavy glass with the Fortuna Script neat at room temperature.
Mr J went for a thin glass with one large round ice cube.
