The Caribbean is not only home to some of the world’s most picturesque beaches and vacation spots, it also provides the ideal climate for sugarcane production, from which high-quality rum is born.
Handcrafted, ultra-premium Pyrat Cask 1623 and Pyrat XO Reserve rum – which take their name from the spelling of the old English word “pirate” – are blended and hand bottled in the Caribbean. Production of Pyrat rums adheres to very unique and traditional blending and aging specifications, resulting in an elegant and distinctive ultra-premium spirit. Pyrat rums are a precise blend of carefully selected barrel aged “pot still” rums, sourced from throughout the Caribbean. (Batch distillation “pot stills” produce a distinctively rich, flavorful rum.) Many of the rums used to blend Pyrat are up to 15 years old, and some are produced from an original, 300-year-old wood still, meticulously maintained and still in use today. After blending, Pyrat rums are then further aged in a combination of individually selected French Limousin and specially toasted American oak barrels, which produce rich and smooth flavor complexities.
