Our Rum Making Process

The Shellback rum-making process begins with the harvesting of specially selected Caribbean sugarcane. We then rush the sugarcane to a nearby distillery and press it into molasses, which is the base that will be fermented into rum.

Yeast is then added to the molasses in special fermenting tanks, yielding wort, which is distilled to produce rum. This early mixture is then aged and blended into its final state as Shellback Silver rum.

Twelve additional worldly spices sourced from regions around the world are then added to the Shellback Silver rum and barrel-aged to provide Shellback Spiced rum's distinctive taste.
