Old Man 25 Year Old Expression No.1
Brain child of the late Ian Linslay, as a labour of love and ode to his father, John Linslay. Due to market demands in the 1940s John - director and blender at Alnwick Rum Co. worked primarily with coloured rums under 3 years to produce inexpensive Dark navy rums that were in vogue at the time. He dreamed, however, of creating his ultimate rum - pure, aged pot still distillate. In 2016 Ian finally realised his fathers dream.
A marriage of rums from three Caribbean countries (Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica) and 7 distilleries - some of which are now lost, this first expression is aged a minimum of 25 years, and some as much as 33 years.
Sadly Ian passed away in 2018 shortly before the realisation of the 2nd expression - passing the legacy on to his own children - and leaving the 1st expression as the culmination of two life's work and a benchmark for those who follow.
