Top 10 bestelling rum brands in the world

A recently released industry report by Drinks International and Euromonitor called "The Millionaire's Club" has come out with the top branded spirits and liquors in the world.

According to the report, while Bacardi continues to be the global leader, the brand suffers from "overexposure" in its core markets North America and Europe where it has failed to experience any growth over the last few years. 

That could explain why the brand is moving into the dark and spiced rum category.

Here are the world's top 10 bestselling rum brands by volume sales of 9-liter cases according to figures from 2011:

1. Bacardi, by Bacardi (19.6 million)
2. Tanduay, by Tanduay Distillers (18.7 million)
3. McDowell's No.1 Celebration, by United Spirits (15.6 million)
4. Captain Morgan, by Diageo (9.2 million)
5. Havana Club, by Pernod Ricard (3.8 million)
6. Contessa, by Radico Khaitan (2.4 million)
7. Old Cask, by United Spirits (2.2 million)
8. Old Port Rum, by Amrut Distilleries (2 million)
9. Montilla, by Pernod Ricard (1.6 million)
10. Cacique, by Diageo  (1.7 million)

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
