First Watch Rum


In naval terminology, “First Watch” refers to the last of six daily watches kept by sailors for duty and sleep. For centuries a naval working day has been divided into two, four hour shifts or watches.

The change of watch was piped by a whistle from the bridge.

The “First Watch” typically runs from 2000hrs to 2359hrs. During this time, the sailors assigned to the First Watch are responsible for various duties necessary for the operation and safety of the ship. These can include standing guard, navigating, operating the bridge, or being on lookout, among others.

This dark rum is a masterful blend of sweetness, spice, and oak, offering a complex and rewarding tasting experience.

Its balance between the rich flavours derived from the sugar cane molasses and the nuanced contributions of American oak aging make it a distinguished choice for sipping neat, on the rocks, or as a luxurious base in sophisticated cocktails.

Why do we do Pre-orders?

We have partnered with some great small batch/craft distilleries. To help them manage their production demands, we give them some notice on how many bottles we will initially need.
