They say that this rum is from 2019 cane harvest molasses aged in a 190 litre first fill bourbon cask, then bottled in 2022 at cask strength. The double pot distilled spirit marries well with the vanilla notes of the bourbon barrel. Lord Byron Distillery’s Pure Single Rum was awarded a gold medal in the London Spirits Competition, obtaining a score of 92 out of 100, the highest score for any rum entered from Australia, Lord Byron Distillery was one of only six distilleries in Australia to achieve a gold medal for any spirit type at this prestigious and highly competitive contest.
