Queen’s Share rum was known to be the best barrels in a distillery and reserved for royalties special occasions. It takes meticulous distilling, additional cut collection, re-distillation, and extended aging to fulfill its promise of dense flavor and plush texture. Sadly it became a victim of bottom lines & large volume manufacturing. We take great pride in being a part of this traditional rum revival.

Privateer’s Queen’s Share rum is made from the richest cuts of our rum distillation. In every distillation, there are traditionally three main cuts. The “heads”, harsh alcohols unwanted in your final spirit cut, come off of the still first. The “hearts” follow; this is the flavorful rum that is collected and bottled as Privateer New England White Rum, Privateer New England Reserve Rum, and Privateer Navy Yard. Lastly, the “tails” cut is made to separate the hearts from the bitter alcohols at the end of the still run.
However, as the heart’s run is approaching the tails cut, the spirit becomes more powerful and flavorful. Even once these tails have overpowered the hearts and we’ve made our cut, some of these rich hearts are still intertwined with the bitter tails. At this stage, our distillers collect a fourth cut- a blend of rich hearts mixed with tails otherwise known as the “seconds”. These small amounts are collected over many runs and redistilled together, liberating the hearts. This creates a single batch, single barrel expression of Queen’s Share rum.
Queen’s Share Rum, which is redistilled from the tails of previous distillations and aged for a minimum of two years in a barrel that “compliments the distillation’s unique character” (either new American oak, used rum, used whiskey, used brandy, or used cognac). Bottled at cask strength with no added sweeteners, colors, or flavors.
