Our rums

The Lobo Plantation has a handpicked collection of over 250 rums. Sourced both locally and internationally, we believe our collection to be one of the most diverse and interesting in Australia.

We feature rums from all over the world but the largest portion come from the following regions:
* the Caribbean including but not limited to Antigua, Bermuda, Cuba, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Grenada, St Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago
 * Central America including Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama
* South America including Colombia, Venezuela and Guyana.

Our collection also includes some of the rarest and oldest variations of the world's most beloved rum brands. By including rums dating back as far as 1930, we are able to show the evolution of rum over the past 80-90 years.

Lobo's Rum Journal

Our range of rums has taken us two years to accumulate and is now accompanied by our own in house rum journal. This journal lists all of our rums by region along with personal tasting notes, historical facts, ABV and also Lobo's twist on 40 classic rum cocktails to help you enjoy the diversity of our collection. The journal can be viewed in venue and is also available for purchase.

FOOD


The Lobo Plantation food menu in collaboration with The Urban Cooking Collective (UCC)

The UCC are passionate about the flavours of their Latin food heritage and have partnered with The Lobo to showcase it in this boutique share menu. From a very young age, UCC’s head chef Vicki learnt to make empanadas at her grandmother’s house, where her family would cook up large batches for family gatherings and celebrations. This menu aims to showcase these delicious family recipes from South America and the Caribbean alongside our award winning cocktail list. All dishes are handmade in small batches with a big pinch of love. 

We hope you enjoy Vicki’s food as much as we do!
