When there’s just the right amount of everything.

Santos Dumont was a real person. In fact, he was a famous French-Brazilian aviation pioneer and one of the first people to develop a powered airplane a few years after the Wright Brothers made their first flight (though in Brazil some say he made it first). Named in honor of this local hero, Santos Dumont Spirits LLC is based in Delaware and they currently have one offering — Santos Dumont XO Rum.

Santos Dumont Elixir is made from 100% virgin sugar cane honey. Based on the old family recipe of Sants Dumont, it’s then matured in old Bourbon and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. Finally, their Master Distiller personally selected each barrel and the juice is then bottled by hand. The result is amazing: sweet and fruity aromas with just the right amount of spice and a warm, soft, and fruity palate that’ll do wonders to your tropical cocktail.

What does Santos Dumont Elixir taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Santos Dumont Elixir and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

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

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.
