About the Rumportal

Welcome to the Rumportal, your doorstep to the world of rum! The Rumportal aims at helping you explore the diverse and colorfull world of rum, with information about rum distilleries, rums and rum related news.

Brief history

This site is a redesign of a site created in 2001 by Danish Rum lover Dennis Klindrup. I, Alex Ganzeveld, took over the role of site administrator from Dennis in the fall of 2015.

Believe it or not, but 95% of the work on this site has been done during a half year trip through South America, on a eight year old (and frequently cursed at) Asus EEE netbook with wobbly WiFi-reception. Needless to say this is very much a work in progress!

We’re currently focus on writing good content for the Rum Community section, and are working on new features for the site. If you’d like to help us or want to add content, please let us know, because any help would be more thant welcome.

What to expect

At the Rumportal we aim at being as informative and objective as possible. The site is basically split up in two types of content: newsworthy stuff and the rum database. The first part mainly covers rum news and rum events, and the second informs you about things like rum distilleries and the rum community. We try to paint as good a picture as possible of the current state of affairs in the world of rum.


Please let us know when you find any incosistencies, errors or when you have aditional information for a page. As said, almost all of the work on this site has been done during a trip through South America, and I know that there’s a lot of errors both in the code and the content.

Is something wrong or missing? Please let us know!
