Het Surinaamsch Rumhuis is located in a country house from 1953 with a special appearance, designed by a well-known Dutch architect Ir. Peter James Nagel. The building was the first residential house designed and built by the well-known architect.

Well-known designs by the architect are: Torarica Hotel, the Surinaamsche Bank, the Fatum building, the Parima public swimming pool, the then famous Star theater and the monumental buildings around Kerkplein, including the main post office. On September 16, 1991, the building was purchased by SAB N.V. Het Surinaamsch Rumhuis is located in this nostalgic entourage today as part of Suriname Alcoholic Beverages N.V. (SAB).


Het Surinaamsch Rumhuis opened on December 10, 2010 and adds a whole new dimension to the vibrant activities of Suriname Alcoholic Beverages N.V. (SAB). This producer of, among other things, Borgoe, Black Cat, Mariënburg rum, also known outside Suriname, is responding well to the rapidly growing tourism in Suriname. Within a short period of time, het Rumhuis has established its name in Suriname as a provider of a unique product and has thus become more than just a showpiece for SAB.

Het Rumhuis has grown into a multifunctional rum establishment, where the experience of the "Rumway of Life" is central for tourists, the Surinamese business community and private individuals. Het Rumhuis has a contemporary and at the same time nostalgic appearance and is located on the banks of the Suriname River and in the middle of the bustling tourist center of Paramaribo. When entering Het Rumhuis, one immediately experiences the fusion between the real Surinamese and Caribbean atmosphere. ​​
