"The Ambassador" is first passed through a continuous column still to clean the wash, then to the copper pot still, which will bring the wash to 80% and remove the impurities. The distillate is reduced to 50% and aged in Oak barrels and then it is rested in Pedro Ximenez Sherry Barrels at 48% and then bottled at 47% ABV or 94 Proof. The combination of old rums with heavy alcohol and light rums are used in the blend form the basis of this rums wonderful flavor.
These flavors have been balanced beautifully by the 10 or so years of aging in Oak barrels that have had American Bourbon, Scotch Malt and Grain Whiskey in them prior to the Ambassador Rum and then recasked into the Pedro Ximenez Sherry Barrels for another two years before bottling.
Ambassador Rum is going to be introduced to the United States very soon in Florida, New York/New Jersey, and Texas in the very near future. This is not going to be an inexpensive rum, but one that you will thoroughly enjoy once you gain the possession of it. ;o)
