A historic bottle - Tanduay is the Philippines' number one rum brand, and this beautiful bottle is, we reckon, from the 1930s (and bottled at a palate-friendly 45% abv). A ridiculously rare collector's item.
A rather special bottling of rum - distilled in 1941 and bottled a huge 58 years later, at the turn of the 21st century. It's travelled a bit, coming to the UK in 1946 and then into the hands of whisky bottler Gordon & Macphail in 1967, who kept it in the warehouses from then on. It's light for its age but has picked up an incredible depth of flavour which has moved it towards legendary status.
A rare and exquisite rum from Appleton, with each component rum aged for at least 8 years on its own before being blended and then matured for another 22 years. It's big and fruity, with chocolate and lots of spice - a great old rum.
Bottled from the Last Consignment of stock of Royal Naval Rum, which had been hidden in storage since Black Tot Day in 1970 - when the official rations ceased - Black Tot is a true piece of rum (and naval) history. Rumfest Golden Rum Barrel Awards 2010: Best European Rum
One of the oldest bottles of Bacardi we've ever come across, we believe this to date from around a century ago, when Bacardi was still made in Cuba by Don Facundo's sons and Fidel Castro was still a twinkle in his father's eye. A bottle from only a few years after the invention of the Daiquiri, this is an important artifact in rum history.
An incredible 1930s bottle of pre-Castro Bacardi Gold aka Carta de Oro, produced in Cuba before Fidel took over and decided he wanted the distillery for himself, forcing the family to flee to the US. A knee-tremblingly historic bottle.
No, it's not a misprint- we really do have a 1929 vintage rhum agricole. It's worth remembering that 1926 Dalmore malt whisky costs over £50k these days... This bottle has a damaged label, hiding the year, but the vintage is printed on the box.
A very special 50 year old rum from Appleton Estate, bottled to commemorate 50 years of Jamaica's independence. The Appleton Estate Jamaica Independence Reserve Rum is limited to just 800 bottles worldwide and is to be sold by only a handful of specialist retailers. It is said to be the oldest rum available for sale.
