Cruzan Rum is launching their newest expression, Cruzan® Hurricane Proof Rum, which will help raise funds for hurricane relief. Bottled at 137 proof, to acknowledge the wind speeds of a Category 5 hurricane, Cruzan Hurricane Proof is named in tribute to the resilience of the Crucians, or those who hail from our home island of St. Croix, as they’ve rebuilt and renewed following the devastation of last year’s hurricanes Maria and Irma. “We’re proud to introduce Cruzan Hurricane Proof just in time for the giving season as a way to drink well and give back,” said Gary Nelthropp, Cruzan Rum’s master distiller.
As part of Cruzan’s continued dedication to contributing to the Island Spirit Fund (established earlier this year), Cruzan Rum will donate $1 per case of Hurricane Proof sold, meaning every bottle purchased will provide aid and support to communities in need in the USVI and beyond. “We look forward to continuing to support the Island Spirit Fund and the important work it makes possible into 2019 and beyond.”
