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 a toasty oak. Long finish to leave a lasting impression of the brilliance of great rum.

It is without question, column distillation transformed how rums throughout the Caribbean were produced in the 20th century. Some of the keynote advantages were centered around efficiency. The Aeneas Coffey twin column design became a popular choice for rum producers in the British West Indies. As demand for lighter and cheaper rum grew, some distilleries around the Caribbean added more plates and eventually more columns to make even lighter spirits with less congeners. Many rums today are distilled on multi-column stills with numerous plates making rums washed of any natural character. It is these rums that have contributed to some of the negative perception of column distillation of rum.

The column still at St. Lucia Distillers is a traditional twin column Coffey still commissioned in 1985. The Admiral Rodney rums have the fingerprint of Saint Lucian rum, which is a rum character unparalleled to any other fine aged rum. The rich flavor profile is undoubtedly from the brilliance of extracting pure rum on lower plates in the rectifier column with lower alcohol by volume. These are heavier bodied rums than most column distilled rums and deserve extended periods of aging in oak casks to fully evolve into the Saint Lucia's most prized liquid treasure.


Well-rounded flavor of spices, burnt sugar and oak on the palate with subtle notes of dried raisins and vanilla.
