TORONTO, Ont. — Who knew Rum could come from Florida? The NOXX&DUNN Rum Company did, and they’ve brought a smooth, flavourful all-natural elixir north to introduce Ontario to Florida rum.
This is no Pirate Rum. NOXX&DUNN is a modern American Spirit that is crafted in a timeless fashion. From the rich golden colour to the sturdy bottle with its long neck and cork stopper that looks every bit as welcome on the table a gathering with friends, as it does behind the bar of your favourite club.
“This is rum made the way rum should be made,” says Chris Hall, Creative Director of NOXX&DUNN Rum Co. “It’s just juice from the barrel. There is nothing added to it. It’s expertly blended to be smooth and flavourful. Kentucky has its bourbon, Tennessee its whiskey. Florida rum is the next great American spirit.”
NOXX&DUNN 2-4-5 Florida Rum is both pot and column distilled from 100% Florida sugar cane molasses and then aged in Florida’s unique climate in once used American Oak bourbon barrels. The finished product is a meticulous blend of rums that have been aging for two, four and five years (get it, 2-4-5?). The result is to an impeccably clean and flavourful rum — without adding any colour or flavour.
It is great on its own — drawing favourable reviews comparing it to much older rums, bourbons and whiskies. However, it really shines in your favourite cocktail – rum based or otherwise.
“NOXX&DUNN is all about mixability – it’s a little rock ‘n’ roll and a little country,” says Chris. “In fact, It mixes best with live music. We’re comfortable where people are comfortable letting loose and having fun. You’ll find us in cool bars and questionable joints.”
NOXX&DUNN 2-4-5 Florida Rum is now available at the LCBO.
