Owney's is named after a prolific rum runner and Hell's Kitchen gangster who popularized rum around NYC during the Prohibition era. This one is made by Bridget Firtle, native New Yorker and one of only a handful of female distillers out there. This rum is soft and delicately sweet with a nice pepper and baking spice punch and a little tropical banana flavors rounding it out on the finish. It's great to use in any rum cocktail, but we think it can also be enjoyed on it's own over ice with a twist of lime or a sprig of mint. The sugar cane molasses used in making this rum is an all-natural, non-GMO, grade A batched product from independent sugar cane plantations in Florida and Louisiana. During distillation in the custom hybrid copper pot column still, both the head and tail of the batch are cut, and only the heart of the run makes it into the bottle. The heart is then blended using only NYC tap water, making this a truly native product. All the finishing touches are then done by hand onsite, from corking, labeling, boxing, to packing.
Smith & Cross Jamaica Rum contains only Wedderburn and Plummer pot still distillates, famous for their notes of exotic fruits and spice. The incomparable complexity of this rum delivers a tour de force of flavour that historically made it a cornerstone of many classic rum drinks. The mark of Smith & Cross traces its lineage to 1788 as one of England’s oldest producers of sugar and spirits. Over time, the firm and its partners became prominent handlers of Jamaica Rum, with extensive underground cellars along the river Thames.
