Gifts For Rum Lovers Delivery – Toronto And Ontario

Rum, we like to feel, is a bit underrated. It doesn’t require strict regulations for its production, unlike a cognac, scotch, or a tequila. It’s not chugged in masses like you might find beer at a baseball game. It’s not quite in the category of a fine cognac. Yet, there’s something about rum with its history and infinite flavors. It conjures up an image of fine sugarcane, dancing stalks, and a whiff of adventure. And that something can make a perfect drink gift. 

A rum gift pack is that perfect adventure to give the rum drinker in your life. It’s a gift that really lends itself to fun occasions. Rum is not fussy. It can be drunk neat or in cocktails. It’s perfect for summer and for winter and for any season in between. Go on now. Choose a rum gift set from our curated selection and make someone very happy!

What Kinds Of Items Can Your Rum Gift Set Include?

Rum Gifts You Can’t Resist!

Who hasn’t heard of Jamaican Rum? Rum is made from fermented sugarcane juice or molasses, which is then distilled. Rum was first ‘discovered’ in the Caribbean back in the 16th century. 

Even now, some of the best rums come from the Caribbean. When you order our rum tasting gift, your recipient will get all the delicious tidbits on the drink, including:

  • Raw materials
  • Production methods
  • History 
  • Geography 

Having said that, some of the most common rum styles are:

French rum: The sugarcane comes from Martinque, in case you are wondering, but the rum is made in Bordeaux. 

Jamaican rum: One of the most famous, this is made from molasses, typically fermented for about three weeks.

Cachaca: Made in Brazil, this classic rum is made from sugarcane juice

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables For A Special Rum Gift

We can add wholesome goodness to your rum gift basket with our fresh fruits and vegetables.

We choose only in-season fruits and vegetables grown locally without pesticides and any other chemicals. This ensures sharper flavors, accentuated character, and vibrant garnishes. 

Adding organic fruits and vegetables to your rum gift makes this a truly special gift!

Rum Set Gift With Fresh Herbs And Spices

Heard of spiced rum? Herbs and spices are great ingredients to add to rum. 

If you are looking for spiced rum gift ideas, you have come to the right place. Typically, we suggest dark rum for adding spices. Warm spices such as cinnamon, star anise, cloves, allspice, and vanilla all go well with dark or gold rum. We offer the freshest ingredients as we want our drinks to be just perfect for your spiced rum gift box.

Special Rum Gifts With Citrus

Take any light rum cocktail and flavor it with lemons, orange, grapefruit, and you will find a vivid explosion of flavors and aromas. 

One of the most well-known rum cocktails is the Dark and Stormy. This classic cocktail uses ginger beer with dark rum and lime juice to create an intense experience. 

You can complement your rum gift basket with great citrus cocktails to make your gift a wholesome one!

Sweeteners For Rum Cocktail Gifts

Sweeteners are a crucial catalyst in cocktails, striking the right balance between the burn of alcohol and the tang of bitters. 

You can choose from an array of syrups, honeys, liqueurs, and other sweetening agents. But we make it a little easier because we offer you completely natural sweeteners for enhanced taste. Add some favorite flavors and sweeteners to your rum cocktail gift and let your giftee experiment with some delicious liqueurs!

Bitters For Brilliant Rum

Contrary to popular notion, bitters don’t make a drink bitter. Instead, they add several layers of depth to the original flavors of rum. Bitters are composed of botanicals and spices, which are mixed and aged in different stages to achieve a variety of tastes. 

A Rum Old Fashioned can be made quite easily at home with just a few ingredients such as an orange peel, dark rum, Angostura bitters, and sugar. 

We recommend adding bitters to your rum gift set for a delightful variation.

Rum Gift Basket Garnishes

Many rum-based cocktails tend to be decorated with tropical fruit garnishes. 

Some of the most common garnishes include all citrus peels such as lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit. These release a wonderfully aromatic scent when expressed over a rum drink. 

At 180 Drinks, we include appropriate garnishes, if selected, to add a touch of the tropics to the rum gift basket.

Ice For Your Rum Gifts

Dark rum usually works best neat or with some ice. This helps to mellow some of the harsher flavors in dark rum. 

At 180 Drinks, we can deliver crystal-clear ice cubes that go well with your drink gift. If you have created a good rum gift, it only deserves the perfect ice. 

Rum Glass Gift Set

Does glassware really matter? Yes and no. To enjoy your drink, you don’t really need special glasses. But you can always enhance the taste of your drink with some exquisite glassware. This ensures that you get the best out of your spirit. 

Rum is best served in a tulip-shaped glass. However, for rum tasting, it’s better to use a brandy snifter to fully allow the aromas of fine rum to percolate through. The right rum glassware will maximize the aroma and discourage evaporation. 

Choosing a rum gift set with glasses adds an extra bit of care and thought.

Rum Gift Box Tools 

At 180 Drinks, we can also provide high quality professional barware for your rum gifts. Our curated set of bar tools are selected for building drinks with the best practices and durability in mind. 

Each gift illustrates both the art and science of how the tools and ingredients work together to help create high quality drinks. Some of the most common bar tools you can consider adding to your rum gift box includes:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Bar spoon
  • Measuring tool
  • Strainer
  • Pourer
  • Mixing glass
professional cocktail workshop class tools

Rum Cocktail Recipes And Instructional Videos

No need to scour YouTube after you send our rum-themed gifts! 

Our rum gift sets come with thoughtful recipe cards and an instructional video to guide you through the drink building process.

Rum Gift Set with Chocolates

The many complex profiles and notes of rum allow it to pair wonderfully well with the equally complex flavors of chocolate. 

While food pairings can get quite complicated, we suggest keeping it simple. Pair younger rums with sweeter chocolates and older, more mature rums with darker, more intense chocolates. 

Apart from chocolates, we offer other snacks as well to compliment our rum gifts. To learn more about the other food accompaniments consult the individual gift descriptions.

Rum Gifts FAQs

Is liquor included in my rum gift box?

Liquor is included in our rum cocktail gifts as an upgrade. We include liquor optionally because sometimes customers would like to pair their drink gift with a specific liquor that is not included, or because customers would like to ship our drink gifts to other provinces in Canada or internationally to the US.

 

We always endeavor to accommodate special requests. For an additional fee, we will allow substitutions for a preferred spirit, or we will coordinate liquor delivery through a local merchant. For a quote for either of these options, please contact us.

Can I change the type of liquor included in your rum gift sets?

Of course! We will gladly make substitutions. This may be subject to additional fees. Please contact us for a customized quote.

With this option, your rum gift would be sent in two shipments. You would receive the liquor from our partner merchant, while the non-alcohol drink ingredients would be sent directly from 180 Drinks. For this option, please contact us for a quote. 

How many drinks come in each rum gift set?

The number of drinks in each drink gift varies by size. For the number of drinks in each gift, please check the information in the specific product description. 

Do I need any specific bar tools and glassware for a rum glass gift?

We believe that you can enhance the drink experience with the kind of bar tools that our mixologists use. For each drink gift in the product description, we will recommend the best practice tools and glassware to build the drink. This equipment is optionally available for purchase as an upgrade, as we understand that the giftee may already have the correct glassware and bar equipment. 

 

If the bar tool upgrade is not selected with the gift, we will include at no additional cost a measured disposable plastic shot glass and drink stirrer. 

 

For our rum sampler gift sets no bar tools are required!

What are the delivery or shipping costs for rum gifts?

All shipping costs are calculated at the checkout for each order. 

I placed my rum gift set order. When will my order be delivered or shipped?

Order by 5pm for next day delivery via our local couriers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and select cities below in Ontario (See FAQ:  “Where do you ship or deliver to”).

 

For shipped orders via courier, orders will be processed for delivery the next business day. The shipping time depends on the shipping method and carrier selected. 

 

Our rum subscription boxes are prepared for shipment or delivery by the first week of each month. We will send you an email with a tracking number for shipments sent via post.

I don’t want to wait for you to deliver. Can I pick up my rum gifts?

Of course! You can pick up from 9am to 8pm every day at our office at 400 Matheson Blvd E, Unit 20, Mississauga ON L4Z 1N8 

Can you deliver my drink gift to my giftee on a specific date?

Absolutely! When you purchase a drink gift, you can select your preferred delivery date. We will then schedule your gift for the delivery or ship date desired. 

What is the difference between a one-time drink gift and a rum subscription box?

A one-time rum gift set is delivered once, whereas a rum gift subscription delivers a new unique drink each month for a selected duration. You can purchase a rum tasting gift for 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, or Infinity (Billed Monthly). Instead of a one-time gift, why not give a gift that keeps on giving? With the 180 Drinks gift subscription, you give the rum drinker in your life periodic deliveries of rum tasting boxes and other spirits. We offer mini tasting gift sets with dark rums, spiced rums, and white rums. 

I can’t find what I am looking for!

Don’t worry! Whether you are looking for rum gifts for him or her, we are here to help you. We can help you choose the best rum as a gift. We can work with you to choose a rum tasting gift that suits the occasion, budget, and the recipient’s personal tastes. 

 

Do you know that your giftee likes rum, but not sure exactly what types? A great gift could be a miniature rum tasting sampler gift set which is great for fathers day, birthdays, weddings, Christmas, and more!

Best Rum To Buy As A Gift

There is incredible variety when it comes to rum. To really think of the best rum to buy as a gift, think of the aromas, flavors, and distilling methods. Rum starts at a relatively low price point and you can enjoy a really good rum for even $50. Some of the best rums come, of course, from Barbados or Jamaica. 

 

One of the most popular choices is the Mount Gay, which has the reputation of being the world’s oldest rum distillery. On the more luxurious side, the Facundo brand of rums produce delectable rums with plenty of depth and complexity.

Do you get your rum for your gifts from the LCBO?

The LCBO offers a great selection of rum for residents of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ontario. We do source our liquor for our gifts from the LCBO.

Do you sell your Rum Gifts on Amazon or Etsy?

Currently we only sell our rum gifts through our website. Amazon and Etsy currently do not allow for the sale of gifts with alcohol on their platform.
