Travellers 10 Year Old That Boutique-y Rum Company Batch #1
This rum is was distilled in Belize at Travellers Liquors. Bottled as a 10 year old by That Boutique-y Rum Company, sister brand to the Whisky and Gin bottlers of the same nomenclature, famed for their irreverent graphic novel style labels. This is one of 477 bottles.
The only rum distillery in Belize, Travellers Liquors was established by Omario Perdomo in 1953 as a blending and bottling operation, taking its name from its historical affiliation with serving those making the journey along the main route to Belize city. When supply became an issue, Perdomo contracted Luis Espat to build a distillery in Belopman, eventually acquiring it from him in 1989. The distillery specialises in dark rums, double distilled from a molasses wash on its three-column continuous still, and aged predominantly in charred oak barrels.
