Product description

Centuries ago, when the merchants of Amsterdam sailed home from their journey through the Caribbean trade routes, they discovered that the barrels of rum on their ships had taken on a richer flavor and aroma from what they had tasted at the onset. These Dutch merchants, after which Denizen’ Merchant’s Reserve is named, began to experiment with blending these aged Caribbean rums with the most special blends being reserved for the finest batches they sold throughout Europe. The Denizen Merchant’s Reserve is a blend of 8 year Plummer style Jamaican rums and a rare component of 8 year Rhum Grande Arome from Le Galion on the island of Martinique. According to respected rum cocktail historians, these two styles of rum were blended together by Trader Vic Bergeron in his original 1944 Mai Tai recipe. Le Galion is the lone distillery in Martinique still producing the unique molasses based Rhum Grande Arôme used in our blend, giving Denizen Merchant’s Reserve the distinction of being the first historically accurate Mai Tai rum to be sold commercially.
