Wild Tiger Rum is owned by drinks entrepreneur, Gautom Menon, and the brand originates from Kerala in South India. The first Wild Tiger Rum was launched at the UK Rumfest in 2015.

That is why Wild Tiger Rum is Indias very first premium rum, primarily intended for export so the world can get the chance to experience a premium rum from India. This excotic Tiger Rum is distilled, matured and bottled in Kerala in South India.
