In October 2017, at the Distillery in Lunenburg, we released for the first time a blend of four barrels of our rum, all fermented and distilled right here and aged both on land and at sea on our floating boat warehouse, Black Beauty. The barrels hold rum that varies in age - from two to five years - and the blend we have chosen is well balanced and appealing. This is a lively spirit, tasting of warm fig and vanilla and the spiciness of oak, with great depth and complexity of flavours and a completely natural medium amber colour.
Twice a year, in the spring and fall, we fetch Black Beauty from her mooring in the Lunenburg Harbour and bring her into dock at the Lunenburg Foundry. There we harvest some of the rested spirit for bottling and replace it with newly filled barrels before returning her to her place on the water.
