A sophisticated Rum blend.

From the team of One Eyed Spirits comes Hell or High Water Rum. These guys used to be known for Ron de Jeremy Rum: a funny name behind a serious Spirit. After 10 years in the Rum biz and many ups and downs, they have now given us a new Rum brand to toast to those who can laugh in the face of adversity. The rough journey made Hell or High Water Rum extra smooth and we think that’s just such a good metaphor for life, right?

Coming in an attractive black packaging, Hell or High Water XO blends hand-picked premium pot and column still Rums from Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica, and Guyana. Matured for up to 15 years in ex-Bourbon American oak barrels, it won Double Gold at the 2020 SIP Awards and the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition among other prestigious accolades. Smooth with flavors of ripe tropical fruits, baking spices, and brown sugar, this one is for the sophisticated Rum lover in you.

You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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).
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.
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 (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.
