The start

Founded by brothers Evert & Anthonie Scheer 300 years ago

The company was formally known as a comptoir de negotie: a ' counting house of negotiation'. The negotiation in question concerned wines and spirits, which were sold to locals or customers worldwide. Batavia Arrack was the first Rum type included in the portfolio.

Supplying Rum around the world

In the 19th century, E&A Scheer blended the original qualities in their warehouse to be able to guarantee consistency of quality. Inventories were built in Amsterdam to ensure availability at short notice. All Rum and Batavia Arrack was shipped from the bonded warehouses in Bulk to customers for industrial use or bottling.

Through the years

One stop Rum shop

Since 2001, we offer a range of single barrel aged Rums with full provenance through our 100% daughter company based in Liverpool, UK. The Main Rum Company holds a unique and limited inventory of very rare Rum casks, which can be perfectly used for limited editions at the (very) high end of the market.

New markets and applications were found

Recent years have shown rapid expansion of the volumes and the addition of new markets and customers, such as the aroma and confectionery industry. Logistic services have been added to those requiring them. E&A Scheer has developed into a full-service and partnership-oriented company for customers in more than 50 countries who need sugarcane distillates.
