A blend of up to nine different rums of various ages.
Myer’s Original Dark rum is a blend of up to nine different rums of various ages, all distilled using Jamaica’s typical production method: pot-stills, then aged for up to 4 years in small oak barrels. It is known to have retained its original bottle shape and tagline, ‘World Famous, Dark and Mellow’ for several decades.
Named after its founder, Fred Myers, the rum has been produced since 1879. It is unique in Jamaica however, because some of the molasses used earlier in the process is added back in after distillation.
