Island Gold Rum is our robust distilled spirit made from blackstrap molasses. The Ozarks has a historical connection to molasses as a supplement due to its nutritional value as well as its pungent sweet flavor.
The molasses embodies a energetic powerful aroma that creates a full mouthed experience when drinking this spirit. Lingering hints of raisin can be detected from the barrels we use. Our barrels have a romantic history of once having dwelled in France storing wine before sojourning to Stone Hill Winery in Herman, Missouri where they resided aging cream sherry until finally making their way on yet another venture emitting character into our rum.
Our carefully slow cooked processing creates a gold rum that can and perhaps should be slowly sipped and savored. We commonly hear from our visitors that they never really liked rum until they tasted Copper Run Rum.
