Bellamy’s Reserve Rum
Bellamy’s Reserve Rum is named after Samuel Bellamy, the commercially most successful pirate of the Caribbean according to Forbes magazine. The brand Bellamy‘s Reserve Rum stands for the treasures of the Caribbean, as well as the sunken treasures that were onboard the Whydah, the pirate ship that sunk with his captain Bellamy. Each Bellamy’s Reserve Rum pursues the goal of offering a uniquely matured, exclusive rum – from rare rum treasures to easy-sipping premium rums. The labels specify detailed information about the rum’s DNA and ensure maximum transparency.
A wide variety of different, outstanding rums
The core range consists of aged rums from the Caribbean and Latin America, sometimes with a touch of sweetness. These rums experienced finishes in casks such as old rum barrels, Rye Whiskey barrels, PX Sherry casks, or Japanese Mizunara oak casks. The finishing increases complexity and creates a refined, unique taste profile.
The vintages offer high-end single cask rum, aged between 20 and 40 years. These rare treasures are bottled at cask strength in quantities of only a few hundred bottles.
The story behind Bellamy’s Reserve Rum
Inspiration for the name Bellamy’s Reserve Rum is Samuel Bellamy, arguably the most successful pirate of all times. Determined to prove to society that a simple sailor is worthy of the love of his life, Samuel Bellamy decided to become a pirate to increase his riches and win the heart of his beloved Maria Hallet.
Samuel Bellamy aka Black Sam was an ambitious, righteous man with a noble heart, longing for the good things in life. He was not notorious for brutality like other pirates, but for his sailing skills, his courage as a captain and for the fair way he treated his crew. However, his life was short-lived when tragically, upon returning to Maria, his ship Whydah sank in a thunderstorm, only 150 meters off the coast of Cape Cod.
