Kill Van Kull is the narrow waterway connecting New York and Newark bays, and it was also the home of North America’s first rum distillery. Founded in 1664, the rum distilled on Kill Van Kull used an early type of molasses made before the invention of industrial centrifuges. This molasses had more sugar, and more plant matter, which resulted in more flavor. As sugar making techniques grew more standardized and industrial the quality of the molasses declined, losing some of that unique and rich flavor. All Points West Kill Van Kull Single Pot Still Rum recreates a richer molasses and makes the most flavorful rum distilled in the Mid-Atlantic today.
This rum is unique - unlike the vast majority of rums you'll find on local shelves today. It is distilled from original fermentation and aged under one roof in Newark, NJ.
Further, Kill Van Kull Rum is not post-sweetened or colored, all flavors are from the ferment, the still, or the barrel.
