TALL SHIP RUM GOING AROUND THE WORLD
a nova scotia distillery is sending its spirits on an around-the-world trip on a tall ship, promising it will taste better for the journey. Four barrels of rum from Lunenburg’s ironworks distillery will spend the next 15 months in the cargo hold of the three-masted tall ship Picton Castle. The Lunenburg-based ship is best known for its adventurous sail training voyages, and “this will be their seventh and last complete around-the-world circle,” said ironworks co-owner Lynne Mackay. They decided to mark its final around-the-world trip with rum that will be bottled upon return in May 2019 as ‘round the World rum.
