Monkey Rum is distilled 100% from Caribbean Molasses. The source of our rum is from deep in the South Caribbean where the ideal situation exists for aging rum. Both rums are barrel aged and then blended with only natural ingredients that results in both smooth taste and clean natural finish.
The dark rum, Monkey Spiced Rum is aged for up to 3 years in ex-Bourbon Barrels and the light rum, Monkey Rum with Toasted Coconut is aged for up to 1 year in the same ex-Bourbon Barrels. The barrels make the rum softer and as a result, we don’t add the extra sugars that are often used by our competitors to mask the alcohol burn. The barrels also impart a hint of color which is why our toasted coconut rum has a slight coloration.
Our Toasted Coconut rum features a natural toasted coconut flavor, where smoked hickory adds “toasted notes” to the rum, that balances well with the vanilla tones imparted by the barrels and natural coconut flavor. The slight coloration comes from the barrel aging process.
