Product Description

Established in 2011 by Bridget C. Firtle, The Noble Experiment NYC produces all natural, premium quality spirits distilled from locally grown and harvested ingredients. Their first release, Owney's Original, is a white rum handcrafted in Brooklyn from molasses derived from domestic sugar cane. A sweet nose of banana, sugar cane and butterscotch leads to a dry, flavorful palate accented by hints of vanilla and earth. Owney's is an excellent cocktail component, but can also be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

FAQs

White rum is also called 'silver rum' or 'light rum'. It's a blonde colored rum, either unaged, or aged for about a year, sometimes less, in steel tanks. The tanks give it that notable light color, while maintaining a light body and sweet taste that rum is known for. Light rum is that light color due to its short aging period. The longer rum ages (especially if in a wooden cask) the darker it will become. Light rum is ideal for cocktails like mojitos and piña coladas.
