A nicely complex Dark Rum that is vatted for eight weeks with barrel staves for a smoother, more flavorful profile.

Rhonda Kallman is a sharp, savvy businesswoman. She was a founding partner of The Boston Beer Company — famous for their Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Angry Orchard Hard Cider, among other beverages. She went on to found New Century Brewing. Her story was even featured in the 2009 movie "Beer Wars." And then in 2011 she founded Boston Harbor Distillery, building out her stills in a historic 1859 brick warehouse in the Harbor District where the team makes Whiskey, Rum, Liqueurs, and other Spirits.

The second entry in Boston Harbor Distillery’s pursuit of Rum greatness is Lawley's New England Small Batch Dark Rum. The edition starts with the same process as their White Rum. That means 100% molasses and copper pot distillation with narrow "heart" cuts of the Spirit. This Dark Rum is different because it is vatted. The Spirit is placed into large wooden vats along with loose staves, heads, and chimes from their used barrel inventory. The Rum rests there for eight full weeks, now imparted with vanilla and wood spice notes.

At one time there were sixty-three distilleries in Massachusetts and thirty more in Rhode Island.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
