Privateer 3 Year Old 2017 New England Pure Single Rum
Privateer 3 Year Old 2017 Rum is the very first American rum to grace the Habitation Velier collection. Rich and oily, it has quite a festive feel, with notes of toasted almonds, marzipan, burnt orange peel and allspice. And beneath all that, there’s also crème brûlée, salted caramel, apple tart, worn leather, bramble bushes and notes of Viognier. If you want to get your hands on it though, be quick, because we only received three precious bottles.
Privateer Rum is scarcely seen in the UK, so this is a rare opportunity. Established by Andrew Cabot in Ipswich, Massachussetts, the distillery was inspired by one of his ancestors – also named Andrew Cabot – who was a merchant, rum distiller and privateer during the American Revolution. Privateer’s rums embody that spirit of independence and are today made by Maggie Campbell, who also serves on the Board of Directors of the American Craft Spirit Association. She created this rum in 2017 with Grade A molasses and matured it for three years in brand-new American oak barrels and the ocean breezes of the New England coast. Bottled in 2020 at a punchy barrel proof of 55.6%, with no filtering or sugar added, it proves beyond doubt that American rum is a force to be reckoned with.
