Crew member’s loved ones used small structure on the top of harbor side houses to look ours for the safe return of their ships. This structure eventually became known as “widow’s walks” as too often the ships, and the mariner on them never returned.
When Newport, RI had the title “rum capital of the world” lie on the seas was not for the faint of heart, and neither is this rum. When ships left port, there was the little guarantee of when or if they’d return. Widows Walk brings back the spirit of the bold sailors that put it all on the line to seek their fortunes.
The untamed flavors of this white rum distilled from blackstrap molasses bring forth a buttery nose and baked sugar flavor. High in proof, low in the water, and much more flavorful than other white rum, Widows Walk is the ultimate cocktail mixing white rum.
“There are lots of distillers making flavored rums and lower proof white rums. An overproof white rum is a unique expression that is focused on our meticulous process and the spirit itself.”
