The Cockspur Heritage
Barbados, the birthplace of rum, is a beautiful Caribbean island, home to palm trees, balmy breezes, and Cockspur Rum. Rum was first produced in Barbados in the 1640s and Cockspur was founded there in 1884. For more than 125 years, Cockspur Rum has found its way to distant shores and has become known as the smooth, free-spirited Bajan rum.
Cockspur Fine Rum has a brilliant golden amber color and a mixture of aromas: brown sugar, butter rum, dried fruit and island spices. Its rich, full and smooth body leaves a beautiful, lingering taste of gentle oak and warm spice. Cockspur Fine is great combined with your favourite mixers or in cocktails and is equally enjoyed on the rocks.
Cockspur 12 is blended from our oldest rum reserves stored at our distillery on the beach outside Bridgetown. Following initial aromas of dried tropical fruits, the quality barrel aging becomes evident with bourbon-like whiskey notes, toffee, rich vanilla and powerful oak. Its full, robust body is complimented with a velvety warm oakiness that lingers in your mouth.
Cockspur 12 is best sipped neat or on the rocks.
