Bourbon, Pinot Noir
Smuggler’s Reserve Overproof rum is inspired by the events of 14th August 1815, when the brig ‘Andrew Savage’, originally from Portaferry, ran aground on the Briggs reef off Groomsport on its way back from Belfast Bay, Antigua, loaded with rum. A newspaper reported that the Andrew Savage expected to save ‘most’ of its cargo, the remaining barrels ending up in the hands of happy locals!
A marriage of sourced heavy pot-still rum from Barbados and new-make rum distilled in the Copeland distillery, left to mature peacefully in Donaghadee in American bourbon first-fill barrels and Pinot Noir barrels. Blended at a ratio of 50:50 bourbon to Pinot Noir, the result is an exceptionally smooth overproof rum, bottled at 57.2% ABV.
Copeland Overproof rum boasts pleasantly familiar aromas such as corner shop ice-cream and candied orange. The taste is a smooth and velvet-like experience of spiced honey, vanilla and dried fruit and can be enjoyed neat over ice with lime.
