This smooth, clean and clear, slightly sweet spirit is an incredible blend of 5 to 12-year-old rums, which are aged in oak barrels. It is charcoal-filtered and excellent for mixing.
Owned by Beam, Incorporated, Cruzan comes from the island of St. Croix, where it has been distilled since 1760. It has been tended to by the Nelthropp family since the 1800's and the distillery itself is, "the most honored rum distillery in the world."
Cruzan is named for island inhabitants. They are the Cruzians (crew-shuns).
Normally, one would want to employ rum as a mixer. However, we tried it right out of the bottle and into a shot glass. That's all we needed.
