So How Did This Hybrid Spirit Come Into Existence?
The trademark owner Jan Vistisen from Royal Danish Cigars has experimented for 2 years with double infusing rum and cognac into the new luxury cigar brand Swiss Cigars, however when infused with the individual spirits, the strong flavor from cognac constantly took over the milder aromas of the fine mellow rums, so in the end the only option was to blend the two spirits together. Many different blending formulas of rum and cognac were tried to find the perfect balance for the infusion of the cigars. He was so impressed by the aromas and flavors in the final blend that he decided to sip it…., in that moment it was clear that an absolutely amazing new hybrid spirit had been crafted. The trademarks were registered and the first official RUMNAC was introduced 6 months later at InterTabac 2018, which resulted in immediate success with 2000+ bottles pre-sold after 25 liters of #RUMNAC was served over 3 days for the international visitors to the world’s biggest tobacco fair. YES, that’s how RUMNAC ® was born and the double infused cigars……, well they are still aging in the humidor for release at a later date!
In 2019 we introduce two new members which are currently aging in barrels; PEAT 55% CASK STRENGTH with the world’s first Peated Cognac ™ and our flagship Armagnac XO HYBRID ™

RUMNAC ® is a registered trademark in Europe No. 017872889 and under reg. in USA No. 88024598. However BNIC – A.K.A. “The Cognac Guardianship” and their in-house lawyers demand us to change name and attacked our legally produced RUMNAC and labels at our producer Vinet-Delpech without warning. Now BNIC is after our registered trademark rights. They wrote directly to USPTO to prevent the RUMNAC trademark from being published in the USA, their activities meant the first publishing in March was called back, but the additional investigation found ZERO reasons why RUMNAC should not be published despite BNIC tried everything they could to pressurize USPTO, so finally it was published on JUNE 25th, 2019. On July 16th BNIC attacked us. Read their trademark attack here. We will of course not bend to this horrendous attack on private property as not even all Google’s AI power can find a connection between NAC and Cognac in the first 3000 search results. BNIC has allowed REYNAC to operate inside cognac for 40+ years using grapes from the cognac area in their blend, but not actual cognac despite its printed on their front label, plus REYNAC.fr also claim to be “the King of Cognac” among other ‘ac cities according to their website. Furthermore we have a legal opinion stating BNIC have no grounds to ask for a revocation of our EU trademark, and now a year later they have still not done so……, This is pure harassment and abuse of power from BNIC’s side trying to force our small company out of business!
