Cockspur Rum was created in 1884 by Valdemar Hanschell, a Danish businessman who founded a ship chandlery in Barbados, which supplied visiting ships with goods such as ropes, sails, salt, fresh fruit, meat, and of course, rum. Over time, the popularity of his rum grew and he began exporting it around the world.
Crafted from the oldest rums kept on reserve at the distillery in Barbados, Cockspur 12 Bajan Crafted Barbados Rum is expertly blended and then aged in oak barrels to create a smooth, mellow spirit.
