Privateer Rum Distiller's Drawer - Sea Mist #30
Sea Mist - Distiller’s Pale Rum
Age: 3 years 9 months
Matured In: Neutral Cask
Bottles Produced: 193
Details: This bottle gives you a peek into a Master Blender’s daily work. This soft, delicate, highly aromatic rum gives supple richness on the mid-palate. Aged in a neutral cask with very low entry proof, this spirit highlights the flavors gained from maturity (tobacco leaf, savory forest floor, marmalade orange, and dried apricot) with only subtle complexity from a measured amount of soft vanilla and toast from oak influence. Long treasured as a ‘cherry’ barrel for blending into larger batches to add finesse, we wanted to bottle this separately and give you a glimpse behind our curtain with this treasure from our cellar.
When our founder, Andrew Cabot, traveled through the Caribbean to ponder rum’s future, he met a distiller that had a secret bottle tucked away in their desk drawer. It was the distiller's proudest achievement, a special treasure pulled straight from the cask that was unsweetened, unfiltered, and unadulterated. Andrew tasted this exquisite rum and asked himself: Why would someone blend, filter, and sweeten away this unique treasure? Why can't anyone outside a distillery taste rum like this?
Our Distiller’s Drawer is the answer to these questions.
These are our distiller’s favorite barrels - so good that Maggie would keep a bottle hidden in her desk drawer too, but thought it better to share with you.
We gently care for the rum with respect and allow it to speak for itself.
Many of these bottlings come from our experimental distillations, incorporating new techniques or ingredients.
