Beyond the mist
are the ingredients
of KONG

There is a natural sanctuary in Virunga, where the mist is beaten against the rocks as if it were a sea of smoke. There, where the soil is volcanic and the bamboo grows up to touch the sky, live the Silverback. Untamed. As wild as the dwelling volcano. Only there, where the land cannot be cultivated. Only there, is where the same thorns of nature that slows down the skin of the man are found the delicacies of the children of the Rainforest: only there, live hidden the last mountain gorillas in the world.

Plantain

Musa

balbisiana

A WILD FRUIT LOVED BY HUMANS AND GORILLAS

The banana is another favourite fruit of Gorillas in recovery. Gorillas often like to try foods that do not form natural part of their diet in the wild. 

Eucalyptus leaves

Eucalyptus

A TEMPTATION FOR THE GORILLA

Unique caprice that can incentivate a Gorilla to leave the shelter of the forest and enter into the limits of human cultivation, is the eucalyptus. They love to bite its bark directly from the trunk. But the tender leaves are far more subtle.

Wild celery

Apium

graveolens

ONE OF THE PLANTS OF THE RAINFOREST

It is perhaps the second favorite food of the Gorillas, and represents 18% of their diet. Celery is as common in rainforests as it to the kitchen and one of common linkage which we still hold with our ancestors.

Blackberry fruit

Rubus

A HIGH MOUNTAIN FRUIT

Except for the wild mulberry, fruit tends not to grow at altitude. It represents 3.6% of the diet of a gorilla. And it is so low to the ground they are easily picked and that Gorillas can eat them when the fruit is still red and beat the birds to the fruit table.

Tender bamboo shoots

Bambusoideae

ESSENCE OF TROPICAL SOILS

Although they represent only 14% of the diet of Gorillas in the wild, it is undoubtedly their favourite food. They select only the younger stems for their high fiber and water content. You will not see a group of gorillas eat so many as to make them disappear from an area.

Sugar cane

Saccharum

officinarum

Cultivated in Guatemala

Sugar cane is the basic ingredient of rum and a food that is only given to the Gorillas in a state of recovery after being rescued from poachers. Kong Rum uses one of the oldest cane molasses recipe in Guatemala.

Mix of herbs

Herbal

mixtisque

KNOWN ONLY BY THE MASTER DISTILLER

Gorillas include in their diet up to 146 different types of herbs, fruits and trees. A careful selection that already forms part of the secret recipe of Kong Rum.
