About The Duppy Share:
The Duppy Share is a perfectly balanced, unique blend of premium rums from the beautiful Worthy park estate in Jamaica and the prestigious Foursquare distillery in Barbados. These are very contrasting island styles. A fiery Jamaican rum and a smooth Barbadian rum makes the duppy share the perfect partner for punch and other rum cocktails. A big, bold, 3-year old, 100% pot still Jamaican rum, packed full of tropical fruit flavours up front is followed by a smooth 5-year old Barbadian rum giving a warm buttery finish.
What is “The Duppy Share?”: Duppies are dark Caribbean spirits or ghosts, originating from Jamaica and known to have a special love of rum. As a spirit ages in barrels, a certain amount is lost through evaporation over the years. Known as the angels’ share in scotch whisky production, this is far too tame for the world of rum…
Caribbean legend has it that the dark duppy spirits swoop between the islands stealing the best share of the rum. Spirit masters, skilled in the fine art of blending, the duppies take only the best.
This is the duppy share.
