Distiller's Drawer #111
Chirping Glass Bottled in Bond Rum
Age: 4 years
Matured In: New American Oak
Details:The history of Bottled in Bond is rooted in transparency and truth in
labeling, an issue we at Privateer are passionate about. Back in the 1800’s
bartenders and spirits lovers were angered that so many products on the market
were branded as authentic hand-crafted spirits but were in fact made by large
factory spirits ‘rectifiers’ and packaged in a disingenuous way. The US Government responded in 1897 by issuing the regulations for labeling a product Bottled In Bond. The spirit must be distilled by a single distiller, in a single season, at a single distillery and aged no less than 4 years at a federally bonded warehouse and bottled at 100 proof at the same distillery.
Chirping glass refers to the olde timey slang name for a charming cup of spirits or a merry-making glass. A warm and cheerful rum to comfort you in the colder months, we hope it “makes the company chirp like birds in spring” (Grose, 1785)
Notes: dried starfruit, toasted almonds, leather, sultana, dried mango, singed cinnamon.
