It’s OK if you hate Bob Brinley just a little bit… in the “wish I were you” kind of way. You see, Bob started distilling Rum on the island of St. Kitts way back in 1986. Have you been to St. Kitts? It’s a freak’in little volcanic island paradise, that’s all. And Bob Brinley gets to live there distilling Rum all day. In 2002, Bob tempted his son away from a Wall Street job to help him with the business side of things. Imagine that conversation, “Son, do the responsible thing and lose the tie, leave the secure Wall Street career, and come to the islands with your old Dad to make Rum.” It’s like Bizarro-Dad stuff. Anyway…
What you have today is a very successful Father-Son team with 30 years experience making great rum. So you may be a bit jealous of Bob, but you will love his Rum… and that’s all that really matters, right? They produce a range of flavored Rums, including their signature Spiced, Vanilla, Coconut, Mango, Coffee, and unique Coconut Cream varieties. All are molasses-based and tasty as can be.
Uncle Flaviar’s favorite Rum from Brinley is, by far, their signature Brinley Gold Shipwreck Rum Spiced. Reason #1: It’s molasses-based, which is where all of the character and depth of flavor comes from. Reason #2: It’s aged four full years in new single-charred Oak barrels … boom! Reason #3: It’s got a fabulous, all natural blend of vanilla, nutmeg, orange zest, clove and other exotic spices.
Then they just stop, yell “peace out.” and drop the mic. Nothing more is needed, and nothing more need be said. They do not “over-spice” their Rum like some lesser brands. No need to … this is real aged Rum, so they let is shine a bit on its own. Get a glass, pour your ration, and imagine that you are sitting on the beach in Majors Bay with the clear, azure Caribbean sea lapping at your toes.
Bob Brinley named his Rum company “Shipwrech” after an actual shipwreck of a British troop transport ship just off St. Kitts in 1782… likely during a famous sea-battle when Admiral Rodney defeated the French under DeGrasse.
