Liquid treasure from Barbados.
Valdemar Hanschell founded his enterprise back in 1884. He started as a wholesale supplier for ships heading to and from Barbados. One of the main provisions he supplied was Rum - Barbados is supposedly the birthplace of Rum. His notoriety for quality Rum grew fast, and that was just in the time of the Rumbullion, when Rum was in extremely high demand. The operation expanded and with years it became focused solely on Rum. The establishment renamed to Hanschell Inniss, with the rooster as the emblem.
The Cockspur 12 YO is a creamy molasses-based Rum containing Rums aged from 4 to 17 years. Matured in American Oak barrels, the master blender selects the right casks for this blend each year to achieve the right balance worthy of the name, story and the legend. A Rum for any occasion.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Cocktail know-how:
This post-Civil War cocktail perfectly illustrates why you should make your own syrups. Only ¼ ounce of raspberry syrup shines through here, mixing seamlessly with the rum, lime, and orange liqueur and giving you a drink that has great complexity.
- 1/2 lime
- 2 1/2 / 70 ml of Amber Rum
- 1/4 ounce / 10 ml of Raspberry Syrup (see below)
- 1/2 teaspoon orange liqueur
1. Squeeze juice of the lime through a sieve into a mixing glass and drop the juice shell into the glass.
Add the remaining ingredients, fill the glass three-quarters full with ice cubes, cover with a Boston shaker tin, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled, 15 seconds.
2. Pour the drink, lime and all, into a rocks glass. 
Raspberry Syrup 

- 6 ounces / 150 ml of fresh raspberries, washed and dried
- 1 teaspoon strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cup warm simple syrup (1:1 granulated sugar and water)
1. Place raspberries in a 4-cup glass bowl or container and gently muddle the raspberries with a wooden spoon.
2. Add the lemon juice and stir to combine, then add the warm simple syrup and again stir to
combine. Allow the mixture to sit overnight at room temperature.
3. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve or multiple layers of cheesecloth and discard the solids.
Transfer the syrup to an airtight container and refrigerate. The syrup will keep, covered and
refrigerated for up to two weeks.
Substitute: Monin Raspberry Syrup

Excellent smooth rum...perfect in your favorite mixed drink or by itself. Good price point and value. I plan to reorder.
Lovely bottle with the distinct possibility of becoming a staple at my bar. Rich color and bouquet with just the right amount of spices to perk ones interest. Very good price point for this quality.
Great rum, very sweet, and fruit forward. Enjoyed it by itself and in a cocktail.
