ANTIGUA DISTILLERY LIMITED

Distillery
Founded in 1932
Antiguan Rum dates all the way back to the early 1700s. After the abolition of slavery, no stable sugar workforce existed in Antigua and the Rum production virtually disappeared.

Rum shops outsourced their blends. In 1932, a particular group of Portuguese Rum shop owners joined forces to create Antigua Distillery Ltd., initially producing Rum under the Cavalier label.

In 1993, the English Harbour brand was created, and with the launch of the five-year-old in 2001, aged Rums became their focus.

A five-column continuous still is used for distillation, notable in that it is made from copper, one of only two copper continuous stills in the Caribbean.

Maturation takes place in warehouses without temperature control using ex-Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey barrels.
