In summary Blunderbuss Rum is genuinely one of a kind. In essence a absolutely deliciously smooth drink. The Blunderbuss Rum has quite the story and history to it. Altogether worth the read and in fact proving the incredible uniqueness of this very special Rum. As seen below!



The summer of 1864 was a turning point for the notorious band of train robbers. Led by Bloody Bill. Known for their daring heists and their weapons of choice. The BLUNDERBUSS that could stop a steam train in its tracks.

When they heard about a train carrying a large shipment of gold bullion coins, they saw an opportunity for the score of a lifetime. They planned the heist with precision and successfully brought the train to a standstill.

But to their surprise, they found no gold. Only a group of passengers and a strange, dark liquid stored in barrels. The bandits, not being ones to let good loot go to waste, decided to take the barrels with them.

As they made their getaway, they discovered that the liquid was RUM. But they didn’t mind as RUM had a value of its own and could be sold for a good price.

With the Sheriffs and Bounty Hunters hot on their heels, the bandits boarded a ship. The Alabama, at Galveston Harbor, Texas. Bound for South Africa. There they sold the RUM barrels to a collector. The collector was intrigued by the fine quality of the RUM and was shocked to find a mysterious recipe engraved into the wood of one of the barrels.

The final stretch of our history.

And so, the birth of BLUNDERBUSS RUM was celebrated, a smooth and delicious drink that would become synonymous with the daring spirit of Bloody Bill and his bandits. The recipe was passed down through the generations, and to this day, BLUNDERBUSS RUM is still made with the same care and precision as it was over 150 years ago.

So, whether you prefer it straight on the rocks, neat, or with your favorite mixer, BLUNDERBUSS RUM is a drink that embodies the adventurous spirit of the past and brings a touch of history to every glass.
