Robert Greaves – Mhoba Rum

Mhoba is a farm to bottle, hand-made sugarcane juice rum made on the Greaves Family Farm near Malelane in the Lowveld.

After trying to market and promote Mhoba in South Africa, the bulk of the Mhoba Rum is now exported to France. La Maison du Whisky, Mhoba’s partner is also the sole distributor of major whisky brands such as The Dalmore, Jura, Compass Box and Nikka.

Listen to my podcast interview with Robert Greaves on Pocket Casts or your favourite Podcasting App. We talk about authentic rum and ponder about ways in which we could help retailers in South Africa sell more rum. Robert has a very interesting story and is a mine of knowledge. Well worth a listen.

Everything, from the sugar press to the distillery was designed and built by Robert himself. Look out for our visit to the distillery on our YouTube Channel.
