How It's Done
A blend of dark rum from Barbados and rum distilled in The Copeland Distillery, Donaghadee. The Barbados rum has been aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels and the Copeland rum aged in a mixture of French Pinot Noir wine and Quarter Bourbon casks.
Copeland Smugglers’ Reserve is inspired by the clandestine activities that took place along the Copeland Islands throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and gives honour to the contrabandists that brought tastes of new worlds to County Down’s shores.
We marry Barbadian heavily flavoured pot-still rum with Copeland distilled rum, and let it mature peacefully in Donaghadee in American bourbon first-fill barrels and Pinot Noir barrels. It is then blended at a ratio of 90:10 bourbon to Pinot Noir creating a superior, smooth rum bottled at 40% ABV.
How To Enjoy It
With fulfilling notes of warm, sweet spices and gingerbread, perfectly paired with piquant flavours like banana bread, this luxurious Irish rum is a result of the clever marriage of Copeland light rum and a carefully selected rum from Barbados. Enjoy as a Cuba Libré (with coke, ice and lime) or in a Dark 'n' Stormy (fiery ginger ale, Angostura bitters and lime). Head over to our Cocktail section for easy cocktails to make at home.
