I don’t if that is Kosher but there are brands of rum that have an OU. I have been searching for a brand of rum that has a Heimisher hechser and have not yet found. Spirits of Solomon does not make. If any one knows of a brand of with a heimisher hechser please let me know my wife wants to make rum cake.July 20, 2012 1:33 am at 1:33 am #1191065Doodle-Man™Member

Rum can be seriously not kosher it usually won’t have a hechsher on the bottle but if you dont see it on a list of approved liquors then dont drink it.July 20, 2012 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #1191067

RebRY, hechsherim are not my area of expertise, but i can help your wife out a little with baking. If she wants to make a rum cake & has no rum, she can substitute vodka, same amount as rum in the recipe, and a teaspoon (or a teaspoon and a half for stronger flavor) of good quality rum flavoring.July 26, 2012 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1191069RebRYMember

Does anyone know if Southern Comfort is kosher?November 8, 2016 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #1191071
Only if it comes from the UK, Not the American Southern Comfort.
Even when you get it in Israel, they sell both kinds there, you need to only get the British versionNovember 8, 2016 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1191072iacisrmmaParticipant
The Star-K has a list of drinks. Southern Comfort is listed as “not approved”.November 8, 2016 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #1191073Abba_SParticipant
It depends where it comes from USA no hechsher problematic. Ireland has a hechsher but it’s dairy, Belgium & Israel have Hachseruimand are pareve.November 9, 2016 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1191074SpunkMember

Bored214: Are you asking because you have a bottle of Malibu rum and are wondering if you can drink it?
Maybe you’re asking because you were at the liquor store and they had a good machir deal?
Or you are in Malibu and want to do as Malibu’s do?
…Or a plethora of other reasons… curious
