About Cruzan® Rum
Named for the people of St. Croix (Crucians), Cruzan® Rum is synonymous with the spirit of the island whose unpretentious and authentic lifestyle proves that life -- like our rum -- is more enjoyable when you embrace The Don't Hurry™ and sit back, relax and take things one sip at a time. The Nelthropp family, who has called St. Croix home for eight generations and runs the distillery to this day, crafts each of its rums with natural ingredients and a five-column distillation process. Cruzan® also touts one of the cleanest-tasting rums in the industry -- a characteristic derived from crafting a spirit with low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the rum. www.cruzanrum.com

About Cruzan
The authentic, down-to-earth and unhurried spirit of the island echoes in every bottle of Cruzan® Rum, crafted using natural ingredients and a unique distillation process. Every unhurried sip represents a true taste of the good life.

At the Cruzan Distillery, we’ve created our own standards. Cruzan® Rum is made in St. Croix, where we ensure its quality with a small panel of expert taste-testers before it’s ready to be shared with the world.

True to our heritage, our rum-making process is never, ever hurried. High quality sugar cane molasses is shipped from our sugar plantations and proprietary yeast cultures are added to begin the fermentation process. Our exclusive five-column stills then remove impurities interfering with our rum’s flavor. Once distilled, our rum is aged in charred American oak barrels in true Don’t Hurry fashion to develop that one-of-a-kind, smooth, clean taste you’ve come to expect in your glass.

The Nelthropp Family and Cruzan® Rum have embodied the Don’t Hurry spirit. And we’re firm believers that life –much like our rum– is best enjoyed by siting back, relaxing and taking things one quality sip at a time.
