Medford Rum is a true heirloom spirit made in the bygone ways of old New England. We begin with pure blackstrap molasses, add a blend of wild New England yeast, and send it through our all-copper, small-batch still. The resulting spirit is matured in charred American white oak barrels, lending the rum a mild bourbon-like character. Medford Rum has a beautiful dark red-brown color and a rich, brown sugar and butterscotch nose. The first tastes are of vanilla, buttercream, and brown spice melting into a smooth, dark caramel finish and ending in a pleasant warmth. Medford Rum is at the forefront of the new wave of New England-style rums, a category that is picking up steam and garnering national attention.
