Noble Pursuit Rum

Noble Pursuit Rum offers a sophisticated and rich taste with notes of vanilla, oak, and a hint of spice, making it ideal for sipping slowly and savoring.

It is aged in selected oak barrels that enhance its smoothness and impart complex flavors, reflecting our commitment to traditional aging processes.

Aging Processes

All of our aged rum is aged in used American oak barrels that have previously aged Bourbon. Used barrels impart a depth and a range of vanilla and caramel notes to our rums that would be overpowered by new first used barrels.

The aging period varies by product. For example, Noble Pursuit is aged longer to develop its rich, complex profile. Specific details on aging are available on our product labels and website.
