Mixed or neat, it’s quite a treat.

Charbay is a small distillery from Napa County, nestled in the heart of California wine country. The family prides itself on being one of the early pioneers of modern American craft spirits movement. They began distilling in 1983 after their founder Miles Karakasevic emigrated to the US and haven’t looked back, carrying on the family’s heritage of fermenting & distilling that dates back to 18th century Balkans. Miles is already a 12th generation master distiller. He knows a thing or two about crafting a decent Spirit - decent being the understatement of the year.

Their product line includes a whole range of different brews, from Vodka, Gin, Whisky, Tequila, and Rum. The Karakasevic family is set on constant innovation and experimentation when it comes to the production of Spirits. They’re constantly expanding their already impressive portfolio, and that makes us very happy. But this is not a story about quantity, but quality. No colors, essences or “natural flavors” are ever added in the production process. A case study in unadulterated simplicity, they definitely know what they’re doing.

You only need to go as far as Charbay Tahitian Vanilla Rum to see what we’re talking about. This time ‘round, Miles extracted pure Tahitian Vanilla beans, known for their exceptional fragrance and combined the extract with Charbay Rum. For the base, fresh sugar cane honey from Hawaii and Jamaica was sourced and distilled with their copper Alambic pot still. Only lightly filtered to preserve the body, mouthfeel, and fragrance of tropical sugar cane. The end result is an extremely gentle, smooth and sweet Rum, perfect for sipping neat or mixed in your favorite cocktail. Either way, you can’t miss with this one. We expected nothing less from such a prolific and out-and-out thorough distillery.

Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
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).
