Description:
Jamaica's Arawak Indians are a part of the Island's colourful history and they gave the language of the island several words including Hammock and Canoe. Now, Jamaica's leading rum producer, names Koko Kanu in honour of that proud and peaceful people.

Jamaican folk songs recount the potency of rum and coconut.

This legendary combination has been subtly blended in Koko Kanu to harmonize the natural aroma and flavour of coconuts with the finest Jamaican Rum.

Enjoy Koko Kanu on its own or combined with your favourite mixer.

Review: I bough a bottle of Koko Kanu for my dad when I first began using The Drink Shop as my source for quality alcohol. My dad loves coconut flavoured rum and so I thought I would buy him Koko Kanu and see how he likes it. Well he absolutely loved it and now doesn't drink any other flavoured rum. He used to drink Malibu a lot but he said so himself that the sticky sweetness of it rum was getting a bit unpalatable. This rum is a much smoother drink and can easily be drunk on the rocks or with a mixer.
Great Flavoured Rum!

Review: Fantastic full strength (37.5%) coconut rum, this has so much more taste and quality than Malibu, it has a crisp clean taste with no sickly after effects. It works as a shot, on the rocks, or mixed with pineapple, Midori, coke etc. I prefer it to Mahiki too.

Review: What can I say about Koko Kanu? if I had to sum it up in one sentence I would say 'its sex in a glass' to say its like Malibu is like describing a blended whiskey to a single malt. Koko Kanu is in a different league, my only one complaint is that unfortunately very few bars stock it :( which surprise's me given that it is a superior taste. If you haven't tried please do your in for a treat.

Review: We first had this at a Jamaican restaurant in Oxford for something different and it has become a firm favourite ever since. A clear, strong taste. I don't like Malibu but really enjoy Koko. We have introduced it to lots of ours friends who are surprised by how much they like it. Great with Pineapple juice.

Review: Koko Kanu is just fab!
Think Malibu with extra strength and flavour, best served on the rocks!
We usually drink a bottle in one sitting as it's just so drinkable..

Review: Koko Kanu is great, miles better than Malibu, for those like myself who find the taste of Malibu cloying.
Like Malibu there is a wonderful smell of coconut when you lift the glass, but Kanu comes along at spirit strength, instead of liqueur strength. With the strength compensating for the sweetness it is drinkable on the rocks.
In cocktails this comes into its own, 'Latin Love' in particular is fantastic.

Producer Information

Appleton Estate is the oldest and most famous of all of Jamaica's sugarcane estates. It is nestled in the fertile Nassau Valley on either side of the Black River in the Southwest of Jamaica. The origins of Appleton Estate date back to 1655 when the English captured Jamaica from the Spaniards. Frances Dickinson, whose grandsons Caleb and Ezekiel were the earliest known owners of the Appleton Estate, took part in that conquest of Jamaica, and it is believed that Appleton Estate was part of the land grant that Dickinson received as reward for his services.
After many generations of ownership by the Dickinson family, the Appleton Estate was sold out of the family in 1845. From then on, it was owned by a procession of prominent Jamaican families, each of whom helped to increase the size and potential of the Appleton Estate by purchasing additional acreage of land planted with sugarcane. During these years, the Appleton Estate was producing several different pot still rums, and it began to gain a reputation as a reliable source for quality rum, a reputation that continues to this day.
Meanwhile, John Wray, a successful rum producer in his own right, opened the Shakespeare Tavern in Kingston, Jamaica. Though no one knew it at the time, this tavern would ultimately contribute to the day when Mr. Wray and the Appleton Estate would join together to guide the Appleton Estate to worldwide acclaim. You see, in his tavern, Mr. Wray made it a practice to serve his patrons the rums that he himself produced. His rums were quite well received. Word began to spread of the quality of Mr. Wray's produce, and as his rums increased in popularity, his own rum production began to prosper. So successful was his venture that in 1862 John Wray invited his nephew, Charles J. Ward, to join him in a partnership. That same year, Wray & Nephew aged rums were awarded three gold medals at the London Exhibition, the first of many to be garnered over the years.
In 1916, the Lindo Brothers & Co purchased Wray & Nephew. Almost immediately thereafter, the new company, J. Wray & Nephew Ltd., purchased the Appleton Estate. Today, J. Wray & Nephew Ltd. produces rums that are unique and distinctly Jamaican. Bottlings include Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum, Coruba Jamaica Rum, Appleton Special Jamaica Rum and the prestigious portfolio of Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums: V/X, Extra and 21 Year Old. Appleton Estate Rums are still produced on the Estate, which encompasses over 11,000 acres of sugar cane as well as a sugarcane refinery and the Distillery.
