Barry Young, master distiller, said: “For Bly it was my goal to push the flavor profile so it had a good amount of flavor, picked up the characteristics of the molasses and was not over distilled, which can create a neutral spirit that has no flavor at all. Rum is produced using the distillery’s ‘unique’ mash method, which gently warms the molasses rather than cooking it, to prevent a burnt tasting spirit. Each batch produced yields 600 bottles of Bly Silver Rum, which has “notes of butterscotch and vanilla” with a clean finish.
Bly Silver Rum is now available through Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board stores, as well as in other US states, including California, Delaware, Florida and Illinois. The spirit will roll out to further states, including Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, in May.
The Bly Silver Rum joins Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries’ core range, which also includes Boyd and Blair Potato Vodka.
