Statement

Fine spirits tell a story about their place of origin, revealing more with each complex sip. Faraday West Indies Rum draws from the unique beauty and cultures of the Caribbean.  

Faraday prides itself in its thorough knowledge and appreciation of the heritage, artisanal methods, and terroir of rum-making.

The Faraday rum-crafting process embraces different styles from across the West Indies to offer pure, unadulterated rum, without additive flavors, sugars, or coloring.

The Story

orange-stripes-short.png
 

The founders of Faraday West Indies Rum live in the coastal town of Rye Beach, New Hampshire. In 1874, the Cable Ship Faraday, brought international attention to their hometown when it laid the first successful transatlantic telegraph cable between the United States and Europe. The wire ran from Rye Beach to Balinskellings Bay, Ireland and ushered in a new era of global communications.

In 1890, the Caribbean became the Faraday’s new home where she spent much of her career laying cable from Key West to the West Indies and beyond. In all, the Faraday spent over 50 years sailing around the globe connecting continents, islands, and people through over 50,000 nautical miles of cable.

Not a pirate ship, man-o-war, or rumrunner-- the Faraday was an upstanding workhorse of the ocean and welcomed wherever she sailed.

The Rum

 

Faraday West Indies Rum retraces the warm water routes of the Cable Ship Faraday, finding inspiration in the distillates of Barbados, Dominican Republic, and Martinique to formulate this unique blend of West Indies rum at it best.

Faraday West Indies Rum is crafted by marrying:

A 5-year-aged, mellow pot and column-stilled rum from Barbados

A 5-year-aged, SMOOTH column-stilled ron from the Dominican Republic

A fresh earthy column-stilled rhum agricole from Martinique

Faraday West Indies Rum adds depth and warmth to any cocktail. To best taste its complexity, try it neat or with lime and an ice cube.
