Admiral Rodney Rum
Admiral Rodney HMS Princessa Rum...$54.99
Fine and Mature Saint Lucia Rum
Admiral Rodney Princessa HMS Princessa was originally a Spanish vessel captured by the British in 1780 at the battle of Cape St. Vincent. Captained by Charles Knatchbull with Rear Admiral Francis Samuel Drake abroad, this 70 gun ship of the line was one of the first ships to engage the French in the Battle of the Saints. Fighting valiantly, the Princessa engaged the enemy throughout the battle and inspired us to create this rum which embodies power and integrity. Rum Blend: Admiral Rodney Princessa contains Coffey still rum pulled off lower sections of the still resulting in a robust and complex flavor profile. This rum is aged from 5-9 years in Bourbon and Port casks before being blended together by our Master Blender. Tasting Notes: Deep mahogany color with honeyed raisins on the nose and a hint of vanilla and tobacco. Sweet with intense brown sugar, crème brulee tones balanced by dry toasty oak. Complex finish with good oak integration, caramel, and tropical spice.

Extra Old Saint Lucia Rum

Captained by Thomas Burnett, the Royal Oak maneuvered skillfully and brought to bear all of her 74 guns on the enemy for the duration of the battle. With 8 men lost and 20 wounded, the Royal Oak played an integral role in the first skirmishes of the battle and encouraged us to create a rum of rarity, intensity, and boldness. Rum Blend: Admiral Rodney Royal Oak, the original Admiral Rodney blend, contains 7-12 year old Coffey still rum that has been aged exclusively in previously used Bourbon casks and blended to perfection.

Admiral Rodney HMS Formidable Rum...$92.99
Rare Saint Lucia Rum
Admiral Rodney Formidable HMS Formidable was Admiral Rodney’s flagship in the famous Battle of the Saints. Formidable was in the center of the British fleet and took advantage of a sudden change of wind to “break the line” and sail into the French fleet unleashing her 98 guns on Admiral de Grasse’s ships. Fighting with gusto and courage, Formidable’s gallantry has inspired an exceptional rum that celebrates valor, honor, and service. Rum Blend: Admiral Rodney Formidable contains rums pulled exclusively from the lowest portion of the Coffey still possible resulting in a much heavier and more flavorful rum. These rums are then aged from 9-12 years in previously used Bourbon casks and expertly blended. Tasting Notes: Intense dark golden color with a nose of wonderful honeyed raisin fruit, spiced and vanilla. A complex palate of luscious sweet sultans fruit balanced with a toasty oak. Long finish to leave a lasting impression of the brilliance of great rum.
