Afrohead Rum Rolls Out Across the US

Harbour Island Rum Company has rolled out its Afrohead aged dark rum in more areas across United States.
Afrohead 7 Year and XO Expressions

     The small-batch rum will become available across the US.  Currently available in the Bahamas and Florida, the small-batch rum has now launched in Tennessee and New York, where it is available at selected bars, restaurants and off-premise liquor stores.

     Afrohead rum is made from sugarcane molasses sourced from the West Indies, in particular the Dominican Republic.  It is fermented using a yeast strand from Trinidad that is more than 100 years old, to give a “banana and toffee” base.  After distillation, the rum is aged in onceused, charred Bourbon oak barrels and then transferred to Barbados for bottling.

     I have had this rum at the Rum Bar since late April and it has become an instant favorite among the customers here in Key West.
