There is no "good enough" at Privateer Rum. No compromises. No shortcuts. Ever.

Our Story

America embodies freedom. And the men and women who served as privateers during our Revolution embodied it too. And passion. And a gritty, bare-knuckled determination to fight the good fight. And to profit from their success.

There was no easy way to win against the greatest sea power in the world. So privateers innovated. They changed the rules of engagement, and ultimately the outcome of the war.

Today, that same spirit drives us at Privateer Rum. A spirit that demands doing what you believe is right. Doing it well. And doing it your own way, even when this means defying convention.

Freedom. Innovation. Conviction. It's in our DNA. It's in our rum.

Rum, rethought

Our commitment to quality borders on obsession. We begin by selecting only the highest quality ingredients and the finest yeasts in the world. We ferment long and cool in the tradition of great spirits. We age our amber rum in the Maritime climate of New England where seasons naturally expand and contract our barrels. And then we cask-finish in used whiskey and brandy barrels.

Our Craft Dedication to Quality

Privateer holds honesty as its promise. We have a purity of purpose that drives us to craft a pure rum. We never hide behind sweeteners or colorings. Every batch is either great, or it's not. And if it's not the best we have ever made, it's a batch you'll never taste. There is no "good enough" at Privateer. No compromises. No shortcuts. Ever.
