This small batch rum explodes with the flavors of the coastline: allspice, vanilla, orange peel, peppercorns, cinnamon and clove. It's a marriage of the finest organic botanicals with an incredibly smooth rum. We make a tasty white rum and then use a mortar and pestle to grind spices to add more flavor. You can smell and taste the difference.
