About Blackwell Jamaican Black Gold RumBlackwell Rum was co-founded by one of the UK's most legendary record producers and record label owners, Chris Blackwell, who played a major role in the careers of musicians such as Bob Marley and U2. "This is a rum that celebrates Jamaica, my friendships, and also my family legacy," says Blackwell of the Jamaican rum brand that he co-founded with entrepreneur Richard Kirschenbaum in 2008.
Blackwell's son Chris Blackwell Jr. has been taking over the reins of the rum that is based on a traditional family recipe that stems from the time the family owned J. Wray & Nephew ― the distillery at which Blackwell rum is produced today. Developed by Blackwell and Appleton Estate Master Blender Joe Spence, the rum is crafted with Jamaican sugar cane and is a classic blend of pot still and column still rum.
Blackwell Jamaican Black Gold Rum is aged in American oak for one year and bottled at 80 proof. While Blackwell suggest sipping it on the rocks, its rich and deep flavor profile makes it a great choice for cocktails. A portion of Blackwell's proceeds go to the Oracabessa Foundation that helps with marine conservation as well as the sustainable development of the town.
