Our vision is to create a premium blended white rum that is truly unique and relies on no artificial flavors or ingredients. Owney’s is a distinct blend of our handmade Distiller’s Reserve and imported, aged Dominican rum. We think this special combination creates something awesome – smooth and versatile with an NYC edge.
Owney’s is inspired by a rum-soaked time in America’s history – Prohibition! At the time, “rum runners” were known to smuggle in aged Caribbean rums and blend them with locally distilled spirits to extend precious reserves. This is our modern (and legal!) interpretation of that practice, New York style.
Owney’s is made by blending still proof Distiller’s Reserve with filtered cask-strength Dominican rum. In addition to removing color, filtering helps temper some of the barrel notes from the aged rum, letting the Brooklyn distillate shine through. Our proprietary rum blend is then brought to bottle proof with filtered NYC tap water.
