The Real McCoy Rum To Gain John Lewis Listing

Partnership Rum Running…  

It’s always pleasing to hear that the availability of authentic rum increases, meaning regular people and not just rum fans are likely to encounter it. So its good news to hear that a large number of John Lewis stores across the UK and online via John Lewis Direct, will soon be stocking The Real McCoy rum from Foursquare Distillery, Barbados.
It seems that initially the 3 and 5 Year Old expressions are set to be stocked, with no word on the listing of the 12 Year Old. Perhaps (and this is speculation tinged with optimism), they might stock the new Limited Edition 12 Year Old instead – as revealed by Foursquare, then confirmed by The Real McCoy on Facebook the other day. Fingers crossed eh – even though Foursquare advise it’s for the US market only.
The Real McCoy Range
The new Limited Edition 12 Year Old Rum will be presented at 46% ABV and will contain some 12yo Madeira cask aged rum in the blend rather than just the straight aged ex-American Oak that the current 12 offers.
The 3 Year Old is listed at £30 and the 5 Year Old at £35. Not the cheapest I've seen these rums for on the market, but the fact that these rums will be getting in front of potentially a new buying audience is good for the world of rum I think.
