This was the Golden Age of rum.
And right now, rum is having a renaissance.
This island was formed by coral reefs, not volcanoes like most of its Caribbean brethren. Flat with strong trade winds, Barbados became a sugarcane production powerhouse in the 1600s. This calcium-rich coal-isle was the first in the Lesser Antilles to produce rum. By the mid-1700s Barbados supplied millions of liters of rum to the American colonies. How could you exclude the rum that surely fueled many Molotov cocktails hurled at the Red Coats during the Revolution? We couldn’t so you won't.
With a rainy season nearly eight months long, mountain streams keep the nutrient rich volcanic soil of the cane fields in Panama’s southern peninsula naturally hydrated. Aficionados of the golden spirit that comes from these prized fields have long considered oak barrel aged Panamanian rum the finest in the world. We agree, which is why Panamanian rum makes up the backbone of our Marque Reserve blend. We're sure you’ll treasure it, as we do.
Home to the highest mountain in the Caribbean, Pico Duarte, and rainforest rivers that transport nutrients down the shoulders of extinct volcanoes—the cane here is lush & flavorful. They’ve been making rum here since the early 1500s. Centuries of Rum Masteros trained here. Many voodoo priests trained here too. Their rich heritage, expertise & magic is alive in our rum—so you can experience it as well.
This is why we painstakingly developed proprietary blends of rums from different Caribbean locales, all aged in ex-Bourbon casks.
It will satisfy Bourbon drinkers, as well as aged Rum connoisseurs.
We at Golden Age Spirits yearn for oceans as clean and blue as the days when Pirates were the worst enemy in them. Currently, our oceans, reefs and sea-life are endangered by so many evils.
Thankfully, there are great people and organizations fighting for the health of the 7 seas. Listed here are a few that we support with discussion, promotion and charity. Help us shore up their efforts through the purchase of our Rum, or take your support directly to these noble organizations fighting oceanic injustice.
