My name is Bryan, aka “The Rum Champion.” I am a rum-curious rum-enthusiast who has fallen in love with this great spirit.
To me, a “champion” represents a cause they believe in. To me, that’s working to bring awareness to the world’s most diverse yet underappreciated spirit, rum.
I started my Instagram page (@therumchampion) on September 24th, 2022, to share my love of rum with the world and to show people that there is so much more to rum than Captain Morgan, Sailor Jerry, and Malibu Coconut
Since then, I have amassed 24k+ followers and counting! It’s been amazing to connect with many people worldwide and learn more about rum from them! I’ve also been honored to win ‘The 2023 Rum Influencer of the Year - North America’ from Ultimate Rewards.
To date, I have tasted 1043 rums from 68 countries. I also accumulated a modest collection of 450 bottles of rum, with more being added to my library each week!
