Privateer: The Queens Share

The Schtick: “Queens Share rum was known to be the best barrels in a distillery & reserved for royalties special occasions. It takes meticulous distilling, additional cut collection, re-distillation, & extended aging to fulfill its promise of dense flavor & plush texture. Sadly it became a victim of bottom lines & large volume manufacturing. We take great pride in being a part of this traditional rums revival.
