The first local rum produced from the sugar cane in KwaZulu-Natal.
The idea for Zulu Rum first occurred to Clinton Wyness when travelling
through the rolling hills of KwaZulu-Natal which were blanketed in sugar cane.
He thought it strange that the province did not have its own rum knowing that
most other sugar producing areas, such as Mauritius, the Caribbean and
Australia all had a flourishing rum industry.
Clinton approached a close friend Wayne Oliver who is now a partner in Zulu Rum.
Wayne supported the idea from the beginning and allocated resources for research.
So began the story of Zulu Rum.
