Matugga Distillers – founded by husband and wife Paul and Jacine Rutasikwa, has a passion for showcasing the most flavoursome aspects of the global rum category and is carving out its own niche as a producer of innovative and experimental rums. The team produces Matugga Rum – an award-winning series of artisanal golden and spiced rums ‘crafted with African soul,’ and distilled from scratch at their distillery in Livingston.
Every batch of spirit is meticulously overseen by Head Distiller Paul, using 100% copper pot distillation. A civil engineer by profession, Paul perfected his distilling techniques with world-class industry leaders at Heriot-Watt University.
The distillery has exciting growth plans and is currently developing an expanded rum portfolio of innovative new products and barrel-aged expressions that are characterised by intriguing African-inspired flavours, Scottish natural produce and careful cask selection.
