Seven Fathoms Cayman Islands Premium Rum
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Made by man and matured by nature, Seven Fathoms Rum is the first and only spirit made entirely in the Cayman Islands. Handcrafted in small batches by master distillers Nelson Dilbert and Walker Romanica in their Georgetown, Grand Cayman distillery, Seven Fathoms Rum is aged underwater at a depth of forty-two feet, or seven fathoms.
Using only locally grown, organic sugarcane, Dilbert and Romanica distill Seven Fathoms Rum in a Christian Carl copper pot still. Once distilled, Dilbert and Romanica pour the rum into used oak bourbon barrels to age. Instead of simply leaving the barrels to age on dry land though, Dilbert and Romanica cache the barrels in a secret location off the shore of Grand Cayman.
While it's no secret that shipping wine and spirits on boats has traditionally produced higher quality drinks, Dilbert and Romanica realized that they could replicate these oceanic trips by simply allowing the tides and waves to push and pull on their barrels. The gentle motion of the waves and the alternating pressure of the water during the rising and ebbing tides helps push Seven Fathoms Rum deep into the pores of the oak barrels, extracting all of the rich oak and bourbon flavors from the wood, which, in turn, creates a complex rum with extraordinary depth of character and flavor.
Sweet on the nose, with aromas of butterscotch, toasted almonds, and raisin bread, Seven Fathoms Rum is medium bodied and silky smooth. Notes of vanilla and mocha as the rum first passes the palate turn to hints of black liquorice and pepper, making for a seductive finish.
The story behind this amber rum is that it's "matured underwater at a depth of seven fathoms (42 feet)," beneath the Caribbean seas. Look for bold toffee and brown sugar notes, finishing exceedingly long and spicy. It's just the ticket for rum punches.
