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

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