Copeland Smugglers’ Reserve Rum
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 who smuggled rum, whiskey and tobacco into Ireland in the 1800s.
To create this incredible rum marries Barbadian heavily flavoured pot-still rum with Copeland distilled rum, and with it left to 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.
Perfect for your favourite rum cocktails at home.
