English Harbour Rum is your personal Caribbean paradise – whether you’re living it up under a palm tree with a glass in your hand or just living it up with a glass in your hand.
 
Fancy a trip to Antigua? Well, there’s much more to enjoy in this Caribbean paradise than pristine beaches and clear blue sea. Rum and Antigua go together like a wink and a smile. The specific climate characteristics made Antiguan sugar especially sweet and therefore the rum especially yummy – one of the reasons why the spirit has been produced in this tropical island since the 16th century. Antigua Distillery Ltd. has plenty of history as well - founded in 1932 by a group of Portuguese merchants, it has since developed into one of the finest distilleries around.
 
The combination of quality ingredients and traditional copper distillation methods that always accompanied rum production on the island was a recipe for present success. Nowadays, sugar is no longer produced in Antigua, but the distillery still makes good use of the greedy dry climate when it comes to the aging of the liquid. Today, the company boasts a diverse range of products with impressive international acclaim. 
 
The cream of the crop is the English Harbour Rum. Distilled in all copper continuous stills it is then matured for a minimum of 5 years in charred ex-bourbon oak barrels. Every piece of the production takes place on site and the result is first class, baby. This smooth, delish demon water is considered one of the finest blends of light and dark rums in the world and sure to tickle all of your senses. There must be a reason why this is one of the most decorated spirits in the world. 
 
Enjoyed neat or mixed, it’s the perfect companion whether you’re living it up under a palm tree with a glass in your hand or you’re just imagining yourself living it up under a palm tree with a glass in your hand. Come rain or shine; let the smile be your umbrella. And nothing will make you happier than enjoying a nip of this fine rum – wherever you are. Your own personal Caribbean paradise. Now close your eyes and feel the sea breeze, wink wink.

Rob
Rob,
Best rum that I have ever tried. I ordered 2 bottles after I had my first taste. Very complex flavor, not over poweringly fruity, the caramel and spice make it delicious...almost to the point you wonder if it's legal to drink. Divinity in a drink?...closest thing that I've seen so far. AN EXCELLENT CHOICE

A very fine rum; smooth as silk, but not as sweet as some may prefer.
