The story began in 1836, when the three-mast schooner, the “Crooked Eye’’ hit the reef off a remote uncharted Caribbean Island, whilst carrying a cargo of spices, tropical fruits and rums back to England. Being stranded, Captain Abraham Anderson took the crew and the cargo onto the island and set up camp. Realising he was going to be there for some time, he renamed the island ‘’Crooked Island’’. During this time Captain Anderson began experimenting by using the 3-year aged casks from the ship to create a range of unique, and individual aged rums. The result was a range of exceptionally smooth rums layered with elegant flavours. The rum in these bottles are a recreation of the recipe created from the original rums from Crooked Island.
With rich wonderful notes of barrel ageing producing a medium-bodied rum with a sherry like nose with hints of citrus and molasses that holds up well to sipping.
Enjoy over ice with soda water.
