Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 55

Captain's Choice Barbados Vintage 2006 63% vol. 100cl

Op voorraad

A real Richard Seale rum from 2006, made exclusively from molasses. The rum was provided with a fine complexity during the years of maturation in Barbados, partly due to the influence of the Bourbon barrels used.
In 2022 we loaded this rum into an Oloroso barrel on board the Tres Hombres and sailed to Amsterdam to let the sea add even more character.

Now this extraordinary rum is released as a real Tres Hombres Captain's Choice at full cask strength!

What is Captain's Choice?

Captain's Choice is a special limited edition. So there is only a limited number of bottles. It is literally the best rum as only the captain can choose. The difference with the non-Captain's Choice bottles is of course not only in the fact that this rum is still at cask strength and has not been drained. Of course, the captain doesn't tell all the secrets either...!

Origin and distillation

Pot distilled from molasses at the Foursquare distillery in Barbados, this rum rested in bourbon barrels before finally being deemed worthy to be transported in its hold by Tres Hombres in January 2022. 

When the ship anchored in Bridgetown it was decided to select this 2006 vintage rum that seems much older than you might think when you look at the label.
At Foursquare the rum was transferred from bourbon barrels to an old Oloroso barrel and then loaded aboard the Tres Hombres. This age-old tradition has been revived for over ten years now. 

Four months of sailing through the Caribbean and back to Amsterdam have given this excellent rum a distinctive “Tres Hombres” worthy finish. Natural fermentation with Caribbean yeast. 

Design 

The design of this special bottle was made by one of the crew members. The beautiful drawing represents the work of the figurehead of the Tres Hombres.

Bottling

This Captain's Choice selection was bottled entirely by Stokerij Amsterdam with the help of the Tres Hombres team.

The story

 

The life of the brigantine Tres Hombres began in 1943. At the time still without masts and in a wreck-like condition, she was discovered in 2007 by three friends in Delft, Netherlands. With an incredible amount of diligence and dedication from many volunteers, she was brought back to life. Within just over 2 years we managed to completely restore the ship and convert it into a sailing ship that now crosses the Atlantic Ocean every year, sails the Northern European seas and covers these long transport distances exclusively with the power of the wind. 

 

Route

From Amsterdam to Barbados and back via the Azores

Map route Tres Hombres

The rum of this Captain's Choice edition was picked up in Barbados during the winter trip. The first crew boards in Den Helder on a ship that is in tip-top condition after the refit has been completed. Trainees, and sometimes crew, rotate occasionally during various stops, where cargo and food supplies are also loaded.

Loading/Discharging ports:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Grand-Bourg, Marie-Galante
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
  • Horta, Azores

 

Previously used barrels are loaded in Douarnenez and Baiona and later filled with rum from La Palma and the Caribbean islands. These barrels provide an extra special taste that makes the Tres Hombres Rum unique. The rum of this Captain's Choice edition 55 is matured in an Oloroso barrel during the return voyage at sea. 

In Santa Cruz de la Palma, Fort-de-France, Marie-Galante, Bridgetown and Boca Chica the barrels are filled with different types of rum. Other products are also loaded on some islands, such as coffee beans and cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic.

Food supplies are stocked during the stopover in Horta on the Azores. Every now and then tea and tuna are also loaded there.
