Lemon Hart Original "1804" Rum
emon Hart was truly an endearing character, with a dynamic personality, adventuresome spirit and buoyant energy. Businessman, philanthropist, community leader and rum authority, Lemon Hart possessed an uncanny ability to generate excitement and rally support for all of his many undertakings – from the ambitious (sailing to the Caribbean to secure rum supplies) to the monumental (raising and commanding a militia of local men to ward off invaders during the Napoleonic Wars) to the everlasting (innovative blending of the finest rums from the Caribbean to create remarkably smooth, flavourful rums). Today, now over two centuries later, his legacy lives on in every bottle of Lemon Hart & Son Rums. Rum always, since 1804.
From pirate life on the open sea to Caribbean island paradises, perhaps no other spirit evokes such a romantic history as Rum. Made through fermentation and distillation of molasses or the fresh-pressed juice of sugar cane, Rums range from 20% to over 70% alcohol and come in a variety of tones from clear to dark. Highest quality Rums are generally produced in pot stills and aged in wood, while less expensive Clear or “White” Rums are produced in column stills and bottled without barrel aging. Naturally, Rums form the base of tropical cocktails like Daquiris and Mojitos.
