What’s the story behind the series? We asked the man behind it - Jakub Bagiński:
If you close your eyes and say the word “rum”, what picture do you see? Is it a pirate? Or the Caribbean? These are the most common associations with rum. You might actually think these are also the most overused ones by the industry… And well, I must say you are probably right. That’s what we at Distilia think as well. Therefore, they found it to be a challenge to come up with something which stays in line with the heritage of our beloved spirit, but at the same time it stands out from everything else you have already seen.
The Golden Age of Piracy is a series of high-end, single cask rums from the world’s top distilleries – Caroni, Enmore, Long Pond, Uitvlugt, Foursquare, Clarendon, you name it… The series is inspired by a book written by Captain Charles Johnson entitled “A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates” and recalls the names of the most famous rebels who ever sailed on the Caribbean Sea. It brings us to the early 18th century, when growing shipping traffic between Europe, Africa and the Caribbean made some people famous forever. Since then, tales and adventures of Blackbeard’s and other influential pirates fuelled novels, movies and legends. The true story behind these rebels has plenty of rum, their preferred bounty and favourite beverage.
The Golden Age of Piracy consists of ten bottles. The first three - Edward Teach Blackbeard Caroni 1999, Anne Bonny Anney Enmore 1992, and John Rackham Calico Jack Foursquare 2005 - were released at the end of 2021, and soon after they became blockbusters receiving top scores from some of the most renowned whisky/rum critics – just to name Serge Valentin (Blackbeard Caroni 1997 – 92/100 point, whiskyfun.com) and Rob Bauer (Anne Bonny Enmore 1992 – 91/100 points, whiskydigest.com). According to Jakub and Piotr - Distilia’s founders, the new three to the family are at least as good as the previous ones.
It is a limited series, so you’d better not wait too long. The exclusive RumX pre-order starts now. But hold on, this is not the only great news we bring. We also have 15 invitations for an online tasting event with our dear friend and an absolute rum star Pietro Caputo during which you will try all three of the spirits above, including the astonishing Long Pond 1983 38YO(!). Do not hesitate, fill in the form now and become the owner of these three highly collectible rums.
