COLLECTION – Admiral Rodney Rum
EXPLORE OUR RUMS

THE COLLECTION

Already a multi-award-winning rum from Saint Lucia, Admiral Rodney has evolved further and has been re-launched with two additional expressions to create a permanent range of three exquisite rums. Each year a limited edition “Officier’s Release” bottling is also released showcasing a unique and innovative cask finish. Admiral Rodney has been labeled by some of the world’s most respected rum aficionados as the best pure rum made on a traditional twin-column Coffey still. Staying true to what has made Admiral Rodney such a great success, these extraordinary spirits display exceptional blends of aged column distilled rums of different age ranges and finishes. Each distillate in Admiral Rodney Rum is withdrawn from the column on lower plates to capture natural characters of the rum, which develops over time aging in oak casks. Each individual expression shows the meticulous talents of St. Lucia Distiller’s Head Blender, Deny Duplessis.

SAINT LUCIA RUM

HMS PRINCESSA

HMS Princessa was originally a Spanish vessel captured by the British in 1780 at the battle of Cape St. Vincent. Captained by Charles Knatchbull with Rear Admiral Francis Samuel Drake abroad, this 70 gun ship of the line was one of the first ships to engage the French in the Battle of the Saints. Fighting valiantly, the Princessa engaged the enemy throughout the battle and inspired us to create this rum that embodies power and integrity

TASTING NOTES

Deep mahogany color with honeyed raisins on the nose and a hint of vanilla and tobacco. Sweet with intense brown sugar, crème brulee tones balanced by dry toasty oak. Complex finish with good oak integration, caramel, and tropical spice.

RUM BLEND

Admiral Rodney Princessa contains Coffey still rum pulled off lower sections of the still resulting in a robust and complex flavor profile. This rum is aged from 5-9 years in Bourbon and Port casks before being blended together by our Master Blender.

HMS ROYAL OAK

HMS Royal Oak was in the vanguard of ships to engage the French in the famous Battle of the Saints. Captained by Thomas Burnett, the Royal Oak maneuvered skillfully and brought to bear all of her 74 guns on the enemy for the duration of the battle. With 8 men lost and 20 wounded, the Royal Oak played an integral role in the first skirmishes of the battle and encouraged us to create a rum of rarity, intensity, and boldness.

TASTING NOTES

Bright amber color with a nose of prunes, raisin fruit, toasty oak and tropical spiced. Intense mouth-feel of sweet sultana fruit, tobacco, and chocolate, with vanilla from the oak. Complex finish with sweet fruit, caramel, and spice.

RUM BLEND

Admiral Rodney Royal Oak, the original Admiral Rodney blend, contains 7-12 year old Coffey still rum that has been aged exclusively in previously used Bourbon casks and blended to perfection.

HMS PRINCESSA

HMS Formidable was Admiral Rodney’s flagship in the famous Battle of the Saints. Formidable was in the center of the British fleet and took advantage of a sudden change of wind to “break the line” and sail into the French fleet unleashing her 98 guns on Admiral de Grasse’s ships. Fighting with gusto and courage, Formidable’s gallantry has inspired an exceptional rum that celebrates valor, honor, and service.

TASTING NOTES

Intense dark golden color with a nose of wonderful honeyed raisin fruit, spiced and vanilla. A complex palate of luscious sweet sultans fruit balanced with toasty oak. Long finish leaving a lasting impression of the brilliance of great rum.

RUM BLEND

Admiral Rodney Formidable contains rums pulled exclusively from the lowest portion of the Coffey still possible resulting in a much heavier and more flavorful rum. These rums are then aged from 9-12 years in previously used Bourbon casks and expertly blended.
