Other Info:
This rum is based on the story of Bill McCoy, the pioneer Rum Runner of the Prohibition era. When Prohibition began, in January of 1920, McCoy was the first person to fill a boat full of rum down in the Caribbean and sail it up to New York, anchoring 3 miles offshore and acting as a floating liquor store within sight of Manhattan. The Real McCoy never actually broke the law, because back then the international boundary was only 3 miles offshore, allowing people to take small boats out to his tall ship Arethusa. Further investigation reveals that the likely origin of the rum was Foursquare Distillery, because they were the only distillery on the island exporting rum in 1920.
• Legendary Master Distiller, Richard Seale, the 4th generation distiller from Foursquare Distillery, produces this rum for us. Using only top quality black strap molasses, proprietary yeast and a
combination of column still and pot still distillate. The rum is then aged in American oak bourbon barrels. Unlike most other rum producers, we don't add anything to the rum... no artificial flavours, colours or perfumes. We don't add prune juice, raisin juice, molasses or refined white sugar. With The Real McCoy, what you see is what you get... nothing but top quality rum that is hand-crafted, barrel aged, and known around the world as The Real McCoy.

Exceptionally smooth - The Real McCoy 12 Year Old Rum super-premium sipping rum to rival the world's finest spirits. Mature and balanced with complex wood and spice notes, hints of vanilla and an elegant, warm finish
