1780 rum from the cellars of Harewood House, Leeds.
The rum was distilled in 1780, and formed part of a much larger collection that originated from the family’s historical plantation holdings in Barbados. The bottles had been shipped to the UK in the early 19th century and these last, unconsumed bottles had remained there untouched, until 2013. Sixteen bottles of The Harewood Rum featured in a London auction house's sale of Fine and Rare Wines and Spirits in December 2014.
Tasting notes: lethally powerful, fresh, and when combined with a drop or two of water exhibits a light fruit character that hid its age.
Specially shipped with safe packaging. True gem!
