Blackwell Jamaican Rum

     To some, Chris Blackwell is just a music mogul, but his family has been in the rum business for may years.  Chris has put his talents to work on a fine Jamaican rum these days and one that I am proud to say will be available at the Rum Bar here in Key West.

     Chris Blackwell is an international music icon, entrepreneur and cultural taste-maker. His reputation and lifestyle are the inspiration behind the brand and he is proud to offer the best of Jamaica.

     Chris hails from one of the oldest merchant families, the Lindo family. They first came to the island in 1625. His grandfather owned J. Wray & Nephew, renowned for distilling the best rum in Jamaica. Chris continues the family legacy with the introduction of Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum.

     Blackwell Rum has a dark bronze color with reddish highlights. the aroma brings notes of Demerara sugar and molasses.    The blend brings out notes of cocoa and chocolate, lasting long after the first sip.   This will be a welcome new addition to the Rum Bar collection of fine rums.
