Homage Rums

There's a story in every bottle, and these six rums have more to tell than most.  From Jmaica to Martinique to Guadeloupe, each rum was masterfully distilled and aged, then blended to perfection.  Distiller's are a respectful lot – witness this assembled homage to persons who fundamentally shaped their distillery's character.      

Edwin Charley Full Series-BLK-RG1

The Edwin Charley Proprietor's Collection consists of four amazing rums.  Each is packaged in a numbered, hand-blown Venetian glass bottle featuring an iconic glass figurine inside.  The series pays homage to the sugar and rum making process; from growing the cane, to harvesting, then distilling, and culminating in the single-barrel aging of rum. 

Edwin Charley Foundation shows respect for mother nature and the sugarcane plant.  The figurine inside every bottle is of a ripe cane stalk; delicate, sweet and standing proud.  Foundations is perhaps the finest white overproof rum Rum Gallery has ever tasted.

Edwin Charley Transformation honors the human labor that goes into producing rum, transfoming sugarcane juice to a noble spirit.  The figurine is a machete-wielding cane cutter harvesting the crop.

Bologne CdeStG Lbel-RG2

Edwin Charley Enlightenment  faitfully reflects its noble pot-distilled heritage. A bulbous pot still icon ensconsed inside every bottle tells the story of one of the most appealing Jamaican rums available today.  

Edwin Charley Virtue with it's oak barrel icon ensconsed inside every bottle, this might be the most appealing Jamaican rum available today.  It is massively complex, delicious, and highly aromatic. It will reset your expectations for how old Jamaican rum should taste.
