How It's Done

The limited edition Grand Cru Bordeaux series is a blend of three-to-five year old dark rum from Barbados and double distilled rum produced in the Copeland Distillery. After a 336 hour fermentation, the spirit passes through our copper pot stills; Betty a 600l wash still and Hessie, our 500l spirit still, before a precise cut is made to the heads (the first part of the alcohol which is collected). This ensures the best possible taste and balance.

Our carefully selected Barbados rum has been aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels, with our own Copeland rum aged in Quarter bourbon casks. After 8 months in these heavy, first fill American oak casks, we transfer the spirit into 8 Premier One, French Grand Cru casks to finish the rum for a period of 4 months. With these casks having held some of Bordeaux's most prestigious wines of 2020, the flavour profiles are robust and full. 

How To Enjoy It

With smells of allspice, citrus, black peppercorn, oak and brown sugar, this delicious rum tastes of tropical fruits, orange and banana.  The result is a sticky velvet richness, with a delectable cherry and light vanilla finish. This well-balanced rum can be enjoyed neat over ice or as part of your favourite cocktail. Head over to our Cocktail section for easy cocktails to make at home.
