A luxurious tropically aged Rum blend from the Caribbean islands.

During the dry years a.k.a. the Prohibition, a special airline flew thirsty Americans to Cuba, serving them cocktails in highball glasses – The Highball Express. Named after this tradition, Highball Express is a brand that curates and blends fine Rum from the ‘Wet islands’ and brings them to the ‘dry States’. Each of their Rums is built around the chosen ‘core’ Rum to which different aged Rums are married – coming from Panama, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Barbados, Dominican Republic and Trinidad. This makes Highball Express Rums super complex and exciting.

Highball Express 23 XO Blend is some real decadent stuff. The heart of this stunning concoction rested for 23 years in Guyana before it was married with the finest Rums from Barbados and Panama. It comes at you big on flavor and full-bodied with plenty of oak, toasty spices and lovely cinnamon.

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

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 is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
