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.
A marriage of sourced heavy pot-still rum from Barbados and new-make Copeland distilled rum, matured peacefully in Donaghadee in American bourbon first-fill barrels and Pinot Noir barrels, blended at a ratio of 90:10 bourbon to Pinot Noir. The result is a superior, smooth rum bottled at 40% ABV.
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’s heavy pot-still and light rums and a carefully selected rum from Barbados.
