3 Stars is a suave blend of aged and unaged rums from three primary terroirs: Barbados, Trinidad & Jamaica. While Barbados delivers a rich and balanced palate, Trinidad adds finesse, and Jamaica provides an emphatic structure. The final product is filtered to remove color making it a smooth-tasting white rum that blends well with your cocktails. A perfect rum for Daiquiris.

Rahul Mehra, Co-Founder, Third Eye Distillery comments, “While rum has shown consistent growth & curiosity amongst consumers in India, we are confident that India is ready for high-quality rums and developing its own distinct rum drinking culture. We believe that Plantation, with its provenance-driven portfolio, is the right brand that could steer the rum conversation in the right direction here.”
