The Real McCoy Rum comes from the story of Bill McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the prohibition era. He maintained a high standard of quality, and that’s why he and his product became known around the world as The Real McCoy.
Today, The Real McCoy is made at the Foursquare Distillery on the Caribbean island of Barbados. Produced by blending rum from a twin-column Coffey still with rum from a copper pot still. The Coffey still produces a light flavored distillate, while the pot still generates a heavy, flavorful rum. This gives The Real McCoy its balanced flavor profile.
The 3-year-aged rum is unique in comparison to other white rums because it is authentically aged for three years in American oak bourbon barrels, causing this light rum to be naturally smooth with subtle spice, wood notes and bright floral overtones. We then filter the three-year rum, which removes the color but doesn’t strip away the fantastic flavors or aroma, providing a balance light rum unique unto the world. For anyone looking for a flavor forward rum for mixed cocktails. The Real McCoy rum delivers the goods. This rum lives up to its name. It actually is, The Real McCoy
