the history of

Culverin

Dating back to the early 15th century the Culverin is worthy of its namesake, from the French Couleverine or "Grass Snake," it was the 16th-century gunners' first ordinance category for guns of the largest calibers. In many notable battles at sea, gallant crews effectively engaged the enemy using these fierce beasts. Lightweight, precise & strikingly accurate, the culverin cannons were the weapon of choice.

Bombarda's Culverin 5 - 8 Year Lost Barrel Blend is a dark caribbean rum aged & masterfully blended to perfection. First, our blends are aged in select white oak casks under the tropical sun of the Caribbean, then off to the Old World, where they mature in fine ex bourbon casks. The Culverin dark rum blend is one of the best dark rum for cocktails at tastings.com and one of the best rum brands of 2021.

Our crew combined the flavors of an aged pot still rum from Barbados & added the Latin flair of Panama and Dominican Republic rums to forge our signature Culverin Lost Barrel Blend. Complex, bold & with no added sugars, colorants, or caramel, Bombarda's Culverin is a pure & natural rum that strikes with a mighty blow! Rated as one of the best dark rums to drink in 2021.

Tasting Notes:

Golden straw color. Aromas of caramel gelato and sandalwood with a lean, bright, dryish light body and a peppery, brisk baking spices and cracked pepper finish. An easy-going Rum that will be very versatile in the home bar.
