Khukri XXX Rum carries the character of a bold beginning. A unique proprietary flavour extraction process garners a rich and intense taste to the blend. In every sip, you will experience the history of humble traditions, expert connoisseurship and handcrafted flavours that speak to you of the ice-capped mountains that it comes from.
Flavours that are extracted from authentic Nepalese spices are masterfully blended with distils of rich molasses and fresh spring water from the Himalayas. It is then aged in homes of exclusive wooden casks at high altitudes resulting in a tasteful concoction of assorted spices enriched with dry fruits that ends with a sweet, smooth and long finish.
This selected reserve was created in honour and respect on the prestigious occasion of Late King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev's Coronation ceremony in 1974 and names it as Coronation Khukri. It is packed in a unique bottle shaped like a Khukri, which is a national symbol of pride, bravery and elegance. As one of the honorary guests invited to the ceremony, we gifted the first Coronation Khukri to the King in his honour.
