SelvaRey White Rum
The base spirit of some of the greatest and most delicious cocktails — Mojitos, Cuba Libres, Mai Tais, Daiquiris — has historically been undrinkable on its own. SelvaRey set out to change all that. They decided to make a white rum fine enough to sip on the rocks, but that would elevate, rather than bring down, a great drink.
A three-year-old rum brings the youth and vibrancy of fresh-cut sugarcane which is rounded out with notes of caramel and butterscotch from a mature five-year-old rum. This blend is delicately charcoal-filtered to remove the color, leaving elegance in its place.

SelvaRey (which loosely translates to “King of the Jungle”) was founded in 2014 in California by Seth and Mark Gold (Robert Herzig is also a co-owner); however, the single-estate rum is distilled in Panama. After the rum’s launch, singer Bruno Mars came on board as a co-owner and the “creative vision” of the brand.
