Single Origin Editions and Blends


The Pedigree

The limited edition Heritage Blend is Holmes Cay founder Eric Kaye’s tribute to the three rum traditions that arose in the Caribbean basin. The Esotico edition’s label design is a collaboration with Esotico’s Daniele Dalla Pola. The design is an homage to vintage travel posters, and to the thrill of travel – The novel, the beautiful and the delicious are always waiting to be discovered.

Bottled at 43% alcohol by volume, the Heritage Blend shows up gracefully in classic and tiki cocktails and is a great sipper on its own.

The components of the blend were chosen to celebrate the diversity and versatility of rum, incorporating the three styles of rum, rhum and ron.

  • Barbados Rum Molasses-based Pot / column still blend
  • Venezuela Ron Molasses-based Column still
  • Martinique Rhum Cane juice-based Column still

In the Heritage Blend, aged pot and column distillates from molasses and cane juice sources create the unique flavors. No sugar, no color and no other flavors are added in the making of this rum.

Tasting notes

Vanilla custard, dried fruit and citrus notes on the palate, with a finish of oak and baking spice.

This honest rum has no sugar, no color and no other flavors added in distillation or in blending.

Tasting notes

Grass, citrus and pepper on the nose, clove and honey on the tongue, and a pop of hay and pepper on the finish.
