Platinum Rum

To quote our culinary guru James Beard, “Of all the spirits in your home, rum is the most romantic.” Rum, the original spirit of choice of the American colonies, was Paul Revere’s warming tipple on his historic ride one early spring night in 1775. Rum has been the Kill Devil of Caribbean buccaneers, the fuel of our founding fathers’ enlightenment, and the soul of exotic lands, yet it is so simple. Three primary ingredients go into our Platinum Rum, water from the slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, American sugar cane molasses, and yeast. From that base we distill a crystal clear spirit we feel is so singular that we invoke the noble tarnish-proof metal platinum for its name.

Tasting Notes & Best Uses

Vitae Spirits’ Platinum Rum is the pure unadulterated essence of an American sugar cane molasses, ripe with creamy caramel and candied vanilla notes. We think the best uses of Platinum Rum are in cocktails that elevate these sugar cane flavors, perhaps best of all is the simple classic Daiquiri, but the Mojito, Cuba Libre, and Pain Killer are tough to forget.
