About Ten To One 17 Year Old Single Cask Reserve Rum
Ten To One was founded and launched in 2019 by Marc Farrell, born in Trinidad and raised in the Caribbean. Farell was Starbucks' youngest Vice President, but has been a passionate advocate of both rum and Caribbean culture. "We wanted to create a contemporary and elevated blend, designed to challenge expectations and reinvigorate the way people taste, experience and talk about rum," says Farrell. "The inspiration for creating blends comes from our desire to tell a story that reflects the different cultures, communities and perspectives celebrated by Ten To One."
Named after a phrase by Trinidad and Tobago's first Prime Minister, "Ten To One" is about sticking together and overcoming great odds. The brand's goal stretches beyond simply bringing ultra-premium Caribbean rum to the US and global market, "broadening and challenging the current perception around rum and the occasions for which it might be considered the spirit of choice for today’s consumer," says Farrell.
Following their White Rum and Dark Rum releases is the premium 17 Year Old Single Cask expression. The rum pays tribute to their founder's birthplace of Trinidad and Tobago and was aged in ex-bourbon barrels for an exquisite balance of fruity and floral notes. The full-bodied yet refreshing reserve rum was crafted to be an exceptional sipper, whether neat or on the rocks. Bottled at 86 proof, there is no sugar, coloring, or flavoring added. 4 casks of this Trinidad rum yielded a total of 1488 bottles.

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.
