Hamilton Beachbum Berry's Navy Grog Blend Rum
Product Type: Rum
Proof: 57% Alc/Vol
Description: Many great Tiki cocktails can’t be made with just one rum. The Navy Grog is a prime example. Don The Beachcomber’s 1940s classic calls for an ounce each of rich Jamaican rum, dry Puerto Rican rum, and smokey Demerara rum. But sourcing all three expressions isn’t always smooth sailing. Now Ed Hamilton and the Bum have made it easier… and tastier… and thriftier.
Their new Hamilton Beachbum Navy Grog Blend is a carefully selected combination of five different Caribbean rums from Jamaica, Guyana, and the Dominican Republic, all artfully mixed into one easy bottle.
And concentrated at traditional Navy Strength (114-proof), you get less dilution and therefore more flavor. You also use less rum per drink, giving you more Navy Grogs for your buck.
But why stop at Navy Grogs? The Hamilton Beachbum Navy Grog Blend is no one-trick pony. It can make any multiple-rum cocktail more seaworthy. Try it in your own original creations, or even a straight pour on the rocks.
Splice the main brace, and Up Spirits!
I was a bit skeptical going into this since a well-made Navy Grog is a delicious (and powerful) libation; the recipe on the bottle calls for 1.5 oz of rum rather than the 2.5-3.0 oz usually called for in this drink. However, having made a Grog using this recipe yesterday, I very quickly followed up with a second (for quality control, of course). I'm happy - but by no means surprised - to report that this rum blend is excellent and makes a very tasty, lower proof, Grog. Much like the Hamilton/Berry Zombie rum blend, the leaner recipe loses little if anything (other than the higher booze content) over the original drink specs. I highly recommend this rum as part of your tiki toolbox.
