Tres Hombres Rum Ed. 65

Barbados Classic Rum 8 yrs - 41% vol. 50cl

Op voorraad

This Tres Hombres Rum Ed.65 is a real “English style Rum” made from molasses at the Foursquare distillery in Barbados. 

Origin and distillation

Pot distilled from molasses at the Foursquare Distillery in Saint Philip, Barbados, this rum has rested in bourbon barrels for 8 years. 

This brown English style rum was picked up by the sailing freighter Tres Hombres in 2022 to finish maturing in Calvados and Pedro Ximenez barrels. These 5 months at sea have ensured that this fantastic rum has had time to acquire a characteristic “Tres Hombres” finish worthy of it. With the ship constantly moving, the Calvados and Pedro Ximenez barrels have intensified the flavor of the rum for an unforgettable finish.

What does English Style Rum mean?

English style rums are originally from English colonies such as Barbados but also Jamaica or English Guyana, and are known for their quality and aromatic richness.

On these islands they make rum from molasses, a syrupy by-product of sugar production, and not directly from sugar cane juice. Also matured for a medium or long period, these brown rums are often darker and more powerful than other types of rum, for example a Rhum Agricole or a Spanish Ron. 

Tasting notes

This rum also combines very well with our Tres Hombres chocolate!

Are you a real rum lover? Would you rather drink an even fuller and more powerful rum? You are probably looking for us Captain's Choice Rums!

Design

The drawings on the labels of our 2023 editions were made by a Tres Hombres crew member.

Bottling

Last but not least, this rum is made with the help of the Tres Hombres Team at the Distillery Amsterdam bottled.

Each bottle of rum is sealed with a natural cork and finished with colored beeswax. This makes the origin of the rum easy to recognize by the color of the bottle. To achieve this result, the wax is mixed with color pigments. These are milled from natural raw materials in a traditional windmill in Zaandam.

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, the 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

This Tres Hombres rum Ed. 65 was picked up in Barbados during the winter trip. After the refit is completed in November, the crew will board a ship in tip-top condition in Den Helder. Trainees, and sometimes crew, rotate occasionally during the various stops made to load cargo or stock up on food supplies.

Loading/Discharging ports:

  • Douarnenez, France 
  • Baiona, Spain
  • Santa Cruz de la Palma, La Palma
  • Fort-de-France, Martinique
  • Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe
  • 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. This Tres Hombres Rum
Ed. 65 is matured at sea in Calvados and Pedro Ximenez barrels. 

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 hot sauce in Barbados and cocoa beans in the Dominican Republic.

The stopover in Horta on the Azores is actually only to stock up on food supplies, but occasionally tea and hand-fished tuna are also loaded there.
