NEW! Mates Arrack

Ever noticed how the most iconic stories often start with a mask? It’s the intrigue, the mystery, and the unveiling that captivates us. This fascination is at the heart of the Mates Arrack project, where tradition meets innovation in a bottle. This project not only tells stories but celebrate our slogan Made by Mates, Drink with Mates. A unique partnership between Mates, De Rozario, The Rumah and Salud.

Mates Rum, renowned for enriching the spirits industry with its high-quality, contemporary rums, now embarks on a quest to blend the ancient and the modern with the launch of its Arrack project. This venture is not just about crafting a spirit; it’s about reviving a legacy, intertwining the rich history of Indonesian Batavia Arrack with the vibrant essence of Caribbean Rum.

The Mates Arrack project aims to bring back this forgotten treasure, combining it with the natural sweet profile of Caribbean Rum, characterized by hints of banana, vanilla, and citrus. This project is a testament to Mates Rum’s commitment to authenticity, innovation, and quality, offering a unique spirit that’s sugar and additive-free.

Rwa Bhineda, the philosophy of balance and appreciation of opposites, underpins this project. It celebrates the harmony of two distinct worlds – the rich, earthy tones of Indonesia and the lively, sweet nuances of the Caribbean. This fusion not only respects the roots of each tradition but also paves the way for a new kind of spirit that’s bound to intrigue and allure.

Join us on this fascinating journey with Mates Arrack, where every sip tells a story of discovery, heritage, and the unyielding pursuit of excellence. It’s not just a drink; it’s an adventure that starts with a mask and unfolds into an epic tale, best enjoyed among mates. 

Cheers to the moments that become stories, and the stories that become legends. 

Drink with Mates, and be part of a story worth telling.
