History

The documented history of Botany Bay begins in 1703 when Balthazar Casper Busch began clearing land on the secluded western tip of the island where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea blend together. With continual threats of hurricanes, droughts and disease, life on the island of St. Thomas in those days was far from the tropical paradise that exists today. It was through sheer determination that Busch developed this parcel of land into the first modest sugar works which would ultimately become Botany Bay Estate.

In 1784 when Nathaniel Alt took over the estate, Botany Bay reached its potential as a full-fledged sugarcane estate. It is therefore in honor of this rich past that we present to you our Botany Bay Estate Reserve Rum – a rare and delicious artisan rum that embodies the cultural history of St. Thomas.

Product Description

Botany Bay Rum is a custom, small batch (approx. 1250 bottles/ batch) rum that is historically representative of the estate rums at Botany Bay estate on the west end of St Thomas, US Virgin Islands. These private reserve rums were used for special family occasions and visiting dignitaries. In the 1800’s Caribbean rum was traded in small artisan lots that were blended to yield one of a kind excellence that made the islands famous.

The rums were aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels.

Rum Flavors, Origin and Aging

Botany Bay is a blend of 3Yr. aged Barbados rum, 5Yr. aged Guatemala rum, smooth light Trinidad rum, and uniquely powerful rum from Martinique. This is the best of French & English flavor styles.

Distillation Style

Distilled from fresh cane juice in small pot stills for the heavy character and some short column stills for a lighter profile. Using cane juice as opposed to molasses yields a grassy/Smokey character for the more discerning pallet.

Best sipping rum I have tasted
We traveled to St. John a few years back and tried this rum when we visited St. Thomas. It is the best tasting rum I have ever tried. It's smooth and tastes like a bit of cherry and vanilla to me. I love it. I can't believe I can finally have it shipped to me Review by William / (Posted on 7/8/2019)

I purchased a bottle a few years ago when I visited the island. It was from batch 1-26, bottle # 391 of the Botany Bay Estate Reserve Rum. This is by far the best rum I have ever tasted. Currently I am saving the last shot, until I can acquire a new bottle. With that said, can you ship say a crate of rum to Illinois? Your rum is so good it should be sold at Binny's.

I bought a bottle of your Estate Reserve Rum from Moe’s for a sailing trip over the last 2 weeks. I greatly enjoyed the rum and would love to bring a bottle home to Colorado. Is there any way to do this? I don’t think there are any duty free shops at the airport are there? Will I get hassled if I just put a bottle in checked luggage? Congratulations on the great product.

Damn you, damn you, damn you...I wish I never tasted your Botany Bay Estate Reserve Rum and I never bought a bottle in Saint Thomas. Now I am back home nNorth of New York City, carefully taking small sips of you most delicious elixir. But I have a major problem. Where can I buy more of this wonderful rum? I used your locator tool and it found nothing within 50 km. Please help me... does anyone distribute your rum stateside? Or will your rum, once I run out of the only bottle I bought remain an unfulfilled yearning forever? Review by Charles V. / (Posted on 6/25/2019)

My sister, wife, and brother-in-law recently vacationed in beautiful St. Thomas, USVI. One of our adventures was the Blackbeard's Castle and Rumporium in Charlotte Amalie. Here we became acquainted with Botany Bay products and we bought several bottles to bring home. The products are excellent and an Independence Day celebration put a significant dent in the treasured supply. We'd love to buy more but are unable to discover where we can buy or have it shipped from. Any suggestions? Review by Pierce G. / (Posted on 6/25/2019)

Hello. I was fortunate enough to try your absolutely delicious Estate Reserve Rum at a party this weekend. I have sampled over 100 rums and typically keep 20 different bottles in my home bar and this is definitely one that I would love to have in my home. What surprised me most was that is aged only 3-5 years! I find it to be as good or better than many rums aged 12 to 15 years. Is there a retail store in South Florida where I can purchase it?
