Thomas Tew rum has an earthy, rich sweetness and a full-bodied texture perfect for cocktails.
Newport Distilling Company knew there was a long history of rum distilling in their neck of Rhode Island, so they scoured the archives of the local historical society for recipes and notes on production before developing this rum. They ferment and distill blackstrap molasses before aging it at least 2 years in oak barrels. Ah, we're suckers for the rebirth of long-lost tradition.
Now get mixing!
