Myrtle Bank Jamaican Rum

Over the last 10 years Myrtle Bank 100% copper pot-still distilled rum has been aging in ex-Bourbon barrels in the UK and is now ready to enjoy. This fine single estate, single cask pot-stilled rum was made from molasses in Jamaica’s highlands.  The absence of added color or flavoring creates a singularly unique and complex profile. From the hand blown bottle to  the unadulterated rim, Myrtle Bank  brings one back to the handcrafted  and uncompromising traditions of a time gone by.

“Double Gold” Rum

I was hesitant to spend over $100 on a bottle of rum but after reading about this one winning a double gold at San Francisco Spirits a Competition I gave it a try and did not regret it. It is the best from hands-down!

A Decade in a Bottle

For aficionados of traditional rums, Myrtle Bank will be a welcome addition to your shelf. For cocktail fanatics of every stripe, this is a great bottle to turn to, be it for straightforward classics like the Old Fashioned, tropical standards like the Myrtle Bank Punch, or bold, far put Tiki drinks.

Cheers to Rum!

Myrtle Bank’s New 10 Year Old Single Cask Rum is Elevating the Category

Rum has gotten a bad reputation in recent years, as some brands have relied on misleading marketing, deceptive age statements, and non-disclosure of additives like sugar and coloring to sell their product. But there is dependable, high-quality rum available to drink these days, the latest of which comes from independent bottler Myrtle Bank. The brand is named after the Myrtle Bank Hotel, once one of the most impressive hotels in Jamaica, perhaps throughout the entire Caribbean. Built in the 1800s, the hotel truly reached its pinnacle in the 1920s and ‘30s when it was the epicenter of the thriving social scene in the nation’s capital, Kingston.

Myrtle Bank’s new single cask rum has also reached its pinnacle. The rum was distilled in Jamaica at the country’s oldest distillery in traditional copper pot stills using molasses grown in the highlands. The rum was then put into ex-bourbon barrels and shipped to the UK, where it patiently spent a decade aging. This change in climate allowed for a really delicate maturation process. In the tropical heat of Jamaica, the rum’s character can be overtaken by tannins as it expands and contracts in and out of the wood over the years. In the more temperate UK climate, however, there is less angel’s share, meaning that the rum is able to age more like a fine single malt scotch. As the liquid slept inside these carefully watched oak casks, it picked up notes of tropical fruits, ripe banana, oak, vanilla and cocoa. No coloring or sugar was added to alter the appearance or flavor of this unique single estate spirit, allowing it to shine on its own merits. It’s bottled at 120 proof so the full flavor can be appreciated without being watered down.

El Mayor Anejo Tequila

The El Mayor Anejo tequila is a favorite of mine. Great for drinking straight from a chilled glass. Can't find in my local area so shipping from Chips Liquor was a great option.

Love the beer hi

I am glad I found my favorite beer! It was send fast without issue.

Delicious! Definitely taste the apples and hints of peach

I've tried calvados and been underwhelmed by the flavor profile, this tastes likes a brighter, fruitier version without being too sweet. Highly recommend!
