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.
Cockspur Special Reserve Old Gold Barbados Rum is an impeccable blend, made using a generous helping of pure, light-bodied rum and a hint of full-bodied pot still rum. This beautiful, dark-golden rum is characterized by its sweet, silky, smooth flavor that leaves a wonderful oak taste on the palate.
