Company Profile

The Main Rum Company Limited specialises in the importation, blending and sale of bulk rum and sugar cane distillates, in particular premium aged rum.

Mr Benjamin J. Cross de Chavannes (aka Ben Cross), a doyen within the Wine & Spirit Trade, established the company in 1984 from his London base. Since his retirement in 2003 the company has been operating from Liverpool, employing a team of experienced professionals dedicated to providing a unique service to customers worldwide.

We import rum from ACP countries (African, Caribbean and Pacific), mainly Guyana, from Central America and a variety of other rum producing countries.

The rum is warehoused in Liverpool and the majority stored in small wood at a maximum strength of 70% vol., to benefit maturation and to satisfy UK road and rail transport restrictions for movement of goods in cask. Light rum is also held in stainless steel vats at high strength for direct delivery or for blending.

A considerable range of Rum is available, from single mark estate rums to complex blends using various types and origins.

We specialise in the selective purchase of premium quality rums for small wood maturation. Once they reach their optimum age for "sipping" they are released for sale to the real connoisseur.

Sales are made to approved users within the Beverage, Tobacco and Confectionary industries, for delivery in wooden barrel, drum, IBC or ISO / road tanker. Transport to an appointed consignee, covered by the necessary Movement Guarantee, can be arranged if required.

All our Rum conforms to the EC rum definition and for European sales has been cleared for Free Circulation within the European Community.

In addition to the usual activity, The Main Rum Company Limited is a member of the UK Imported Spirits Committee, a sub-committee of the Wine & Spirits Association of Great Britain. Representation is made at regular meetings and a variety of relevant subjects are discussed with Government Officials, HMR&C and other trade associations. Input is provided on current and / or proposed EC regulations that are pertinent to the trade. E.g. Product Definition, Food Safety issues incl. GMO, and Dangerous Goods Regulations.

We support the Portman Group’s Code of Practice on the Naming, Packaging and Promotion of Alcoholic Drinks, introduced in 1996, which seeks to ensure that drinks are marketed in a socially responsible way and to an adult audience only.
