There are 5,945 bottles with 3,000 allocated to the US, 900 to France and 500 to the UK. The rest will go to whichever market takes to the balanced, elegant, ground-breaking rum.

It comes from the Medine Distillery and was blended by BBRS’s master blender, Doug McIvor who used rums aged in whisky and Cognac barrels.
