Rare & Unique Rum Bottles For Display
Every experienced entertainer and host knows a home bar is a statement piece. Yes, it’s meant to be functional, but it’s also meant to charm and intrigue. This is where the design of premium liquor bottles comes into play, starting a conversation every time you pour a drink.
When seeking out rare rum in particular, many aficionados look for distinctive packaging characteristics — maybe because they prefer to pour from specialty bottles that tell a story when serving guests or maybe because they want to keep the empty bottle as a display piece.
Not sure where to start building your home bar aesthetic? Some of our most popular unique rum bottles include:
While this classic bottle doesn’t have an unusual shape, it makes up for that in delicious taste. A familiar name, but with an authoritative presence that commands attention and engenders curiosity. The heavy glass bottom gives it a stately air while the overall design contributes to a balanced pour. An ideal addition to any home bar or bar cart.
2. Gosling's Family Reserve Old Rum
This artisan rum delivers on both taste and appearance. Named the #1 Aged Rum in the World by the Caribbean Journal, this blend was made exclusively for the prestigious Gosling family (whose history in wine and spirits dates back to the 1800s). It was made available to the public in 2003 and is sold in an antique-style bottle that pays homage to the very first Gosling rum containers — repurposed Champagne bottles discarded in Bermuda by British officers nearly 200 years ago.
No quest to buy unique rum bottles is complete without this quirky, asymmetrical carafe. Ask any rum connoisseur and they’ll tell you it’s a special piece in their collection. Legend has it the lop-sided design was chosen as a tribute to the leather rum jugs once carried by pirates — and while there’s no way to verify the claim for certain, it does makes a fantastic conversation starter.
This ultra-sleek and sophisticated bottle complements any contemporary home bar. Its mod appearance has a subtle magnetism. You won’t miss it when skimming your shelf, yet it isn’t loud or flashy. The weighted bottom offers a heavy, high-quality hand feel, and the label has art deco style, as if it could have adorned any countertop in 1930s Miami.
Infused with botanicals like bay leaf and peppercorn, the taste of this exotic rum is as unique as the bottle it comes in — a tall, slender clear-glass number with a long neck and minimalistic intrigue. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity, this bottle doesn’t come up short in terms of personality. The label uses bold reds and teals to draw the eye in and pique the interest of onlookers.
How to Display Unique Rum Bottles in Your Home
As you purchase rum online and expand your collection with us, you’ll want to strategically place your bottles behind your bar or in a buffet cabinet where they can be appreciated. Here are our top tips for taking your display to the next level.
1. Keep Rare Bottles at Eye Level
Whether it’s tequila, whiskey, rum or other spirits, it’s important to put your most unique and noteworthy bottles where guests are most likely to see them. Placing them up high on a top shelf or behind more common bottles is doing a disservice to your collection. Choose a few of your finest selections and keep them in plain sight where they can stimulate conversation.
2. Use Lighting to Draw Attention
Buyers of artisanal rum for sale pride themselves on finding rare gems — but what’s the point of hunting down these hard-to-find treasures if you’re going to keep them in a dimly lit room where guests will struggle to see them? Solve this problem by investing in LED lighting strips for your bar shelves. Most can be programmed to a variety of different colors and they add a ton of visual interest.
3. Take a Tiered Approach to Placement
Some craft rum bottles are taller than others and this can present a challenge when arranging your display. One option is to keep shorter bottles at the front, but if you want to avoid the inherent limitations with this,, tiered pantry shelves can be repurposed and used to increase the visibility of your bottles.
4. Choose Your MVPs
The rarity of a particular bottle is just one of the things that makes it special. Ultimately, it’s about what appeals to you! Maybe you appreciate the label design. Or perhaps you bought a bottle after a once-in-a-lifetime vacation and it brings back fond memories. Whatever the case may be, it’s your prerogative to present your bottles in any manner you like. Choose the bottles that mean the most to you and place them where they can be easily admired.
5. Incorporate Your Personality
Add sports memorabilia of your favorite team, paint your bar in a bold color, or add photos of tropical destinations to achieve a Tiki feel. Your bar should be a space that represents you — so have fun with it!
