The Silver rum spirit is transferred to stainless steel tanks after it is distilled. The spirit is proofed with very soft water in small slow steps. If the spirit is proofed too rapidly, it can damage or mute some of the flavors. We bring the spirit to 100 proof and let it ripen for 2 months. As the spirit sits in these tanks, slowly but surely the molecules are constantly joining and breaking apart, causing new and more complex flavors to be created. As these chains take their time and get longer and longer, the flavors become richer and deeper.
