    How Thomas Tew Rum is made

    Thomas Tew Rum is made using a copper pot still to create a bolder flavor and then aged in a single barrel (previously used to age Woodford Reserve) for 3-6 years until it’s deemed ready for release by the expert distillers at Newport Distilling Co. In fact, bottles of Thomas Tew are hand-labelled with the number of the barrel the rum was aged in.

    What People Are Saying

    “Warning, I gush too much on this rum. I do hit it for the difficulties I find in tasting it, but once you have drank the rum, all of those issues become distant memories. This is not a Caribbean rum, this is an American rum. There is no overt sweetness, or grassy tones, this is a great molasses based rum that has been properly aged in oak…I love this rum. I might be influenced because of its Newport Storm, Newport – RI heritage, or that it is a great example of American craft distillery rum. If you are looking to have a range of spirits that shows the capabilities of the US craft distillery market, in my opinion this is the rum to have as part of that collection.”

    “If you like Bourbon then you will like this rum and if you like mixed rum drinks then you will love this rum.
    It’s got some sweetness to it and that counters the strong oak and Bourbon taste from the casks this is aged in. That molasses style sweetness then fades to a slow burn that seems to last for quite some time. Great heat on the back end. It’s a strong tasting sipping rum and if you mix it then you are in for a treat. I liked it and would buy it again.”
