Manitoba’s ONLY Rum. Rum Release #3

Available to order online February 26 or instore purchase March 1, 2024

Our rum is crafted using a unique combination of Crosby’s fancy grade and blackstrap molasses. We distill and ferment the molasses to preserve the character and flavor – a very slow process, worth the wait for a flavorful rum. We age the rum in casks that were used once to age a double-oak bourbon.

This third release of our rum has been aged for just over 2 years.
Double distilled in our custom copper still in traditional Jamaican-style, this release is a full-flavoured, yet smooth rum.
Enjoy it in your favourite tropical cocktail or on ice.

Notes of cola and burnt sugar, in addition to a hint of oak. Serve in your favorite cocktail or enjoy neat or on ice to savor the flavours.

Whisky Release 3

Mark your calendars – Release #3 is scheduled to drop on November 29th.

This release features whisky from three carefully selected barrels.

The barrels were expertly blended to create a whisky with the soft spice of rye and the sweetness of corn. The whisky pulls the best elements from these two grains – both the rye and corn were harvested and milled in Manitoba. A small amount of local wheat and barley were also used to add an additional layer of depth, complexity and a hint of sweetness. With nearly equal parts of rye and corn this is a Manitoba original whisky. Release #3 was double distilled on our copper pot still and aged in new charred oak casks in our barrel room at 108 Alexander Avenue in the Exchange District in Winnipeg.

On sale at Patent 5 Distillery, 108 Alexander at noon and online at 12:01 am on November 29th.
