Traditionally, Rum is made from sugarcane by-product, usually molasses. Never one for tradition, Wayward’s Drunken Hive Rum is crafted from molasses made from caramelized BC honey instead! After meticulous fermentation and careful distillation on our custom stills, we age every batch of Drunken Hive Rum in premium full sized bourbon casks for at least 15 months, imparting the smooth and sophisticated characteristics of premium bourbon into our rich and flavourful Rum. The result of that   pairing is absolutely amazing. Caramel, toffee and vanilla on the nose, with a rich Caramel Brulée body and a wonderfully complex Smoky Honeycomb finish. Delightfully smooth, a true sipper.
