Description:
English Harbour Five year rum awarded a double gold award for the second consecutive year at the 2005 San Francisco Spirits Competition.

English Harbour Five Year Rum continues to win international prestigious awards. The Five year Rum received a Double Gold Medal Award for the second consecutive year in the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition in the USA, ranking English Harbour Five year Rum as one of the Best Rums in the world. Held in March 2005, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition's expert panel of judges conducted blind taste tests, over a total of 589 entries from over 43 countries, awarding medals based on taste alone.

Sharon Green Sales and Marketing manager commented, 'E.H.R 5 year Rum has been judged and awarded in the same category as Extra Old Rums from the region making it as good as any old rum. This is testament that the company is fully capable of producing international award winning brands of superb quality. I congratulate the production team at the ADL for their hard work and dedication and dedicate this award to them.'

English Harbour Five year Rum is Antigua Distillery's latest product entry into the rum category and was introduced with success to consumers in the USA in May, 2004 and Japan in October 2004.

Other awards were won for the English Harbour Extra Old Rum ,the English Harbour Gold Rum and English Harbour White Rum.

Tasting Note: English Harbour Five year Rum's polished copper hue prepares the drinker for the initial impression of cherry, oak and a wisp of smoke. The first sip of ripe apple, coconut and hints of cinnamon fill the palate. Then the slightly sweet coconut, spice and smoke finish complements the body of the mature spirit. Mixology possibilities are endless. This delightful rum can be consumed straight, on the rocks, with water, in making rum espresso martinis or with any of the world's popular mixers.

Producer Information

In the early 19th century, the first rum's produced in Antigua were concocted by individual estate owners using crude "Pot Sills" to distill their home brews. But even in those rollicking days, Antigua Rum was known for it's lightness and rather elegant flavour.
With the demise of of rum production on the estates in the early 20th century, the trade shifted to individual rum shops whose owners concocted their own blends and sold them under colourful names like Red Cock, House and Silver Leaf. In 1932 a number of these rum shop owners joined together to form the Antigua Distillery Ltd.
stillsIn the early days the company sold two types of rum and an aged "mature" rum known as Caballero Rum. In 1934 the Company purchased a number of estates and a sugar factory and began to produce its own molasses. The factory produced a very high quality and distinctive grocery sugar known as Mucovado.
The residue of this sugar, known as muscovado molasses, contained a wonderfully pleasant sugar flavour and was used to produce the Company's first bottled product in the early 1950's; a unique full-bodied aged rum called Cavalier Muscovado Rum.
barrelsIn the 1960's there was a world wide shift in consumer preferences towards lighter bodied spirits. In recognition of this trend, the Company changed its distillation process to produce a much lighter-bodied rum. Thus, Cavalier Antigua Rum was born.
