Privateer Navy Yard Barrel Proof Rum
Made in the New England tradition, from 100% Molasses, it is double distilled and aged in 53 gallon new American oak barrels. This style of rum was drunk on the ships, farms, and in the pubs of early America. This rum is crafted in honor of New England’s rich history to enjoy in front of the fire, on the rocks, or to add depth and power to your rum old fashioned or daiquiri.
Privateer Rum carries on this spirit of New England independence and gritty determination by dedicating themselves to making only the finest rums possible through uncompromising adherence to the use of best ingredients and best practices.
American Privateers' played a pivotal role in defeating what seemed an insurmountable foe. Their courage and ingenuity helped change the outcome of the Revolution. Privateer Rum is following suit, disregarding commonly accepted practices of larger rum producers including sweetening, flavoring, filtering and spicing their industrial distillate, to establish a new standard in rum – one of honesty and purity. Best ingredients. Best practices. Never sweetened. Never filtered.
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.
