About Privateer Rum
Privateer Rum produces outstanding American rums by selecting the best possible ingredients and embracing the time-honored techniques from the finest rum, brandy and whiskey makers. Founded in Ipswich, Mass., by Andrew Cabot, the namesake and direct descendant of American patriot, privateer, and rum-maker Andrew Cabot (1750-1791), Privateer Rum has pioneered a new standard in rum — one of superior quality and character. Honoring the spirit of American independence and conviction, Privateer Rum relentlessly focuses on quality at every point in the production, rejecting common industry practices including the use of sweeteners and artificial colorings or flavorings.
