Made for the Maritimers who love their dark rum, the Bluenose "black" is distilled to 160 proof before being aged in Kentucky bourbon casks. After reaching the desired quality and maturity, the rum is then blended and bottled into three distinct rum spirits – the black rum being the most intriguing of all.
Bluenose starts with Ironworks' own amber rum. Developed in 2012 to celebrate the refit of Bluenose II, this multi-award-winning spirit is a splendidly dark rum, that has a rich ruddy colour with a blend of caramel & molasses and just a hint of spice on the tongue. It's become Ironworks' biggest seller!
