Pin Drop Rum announced the launch of its ultra-premium rum, setting the stage for a new sipping experience in the United States. 

Hailing from Harbour Island in the Bahamas — known as a “pin drop” of a place by locals and visitors given its small size and position in the Lucayan archipelago — Pin Drop Rum is a sophisticated, character-rich spirit with a captivating tropical palate, the company says.  

“The spirits industry is entering a new era of exploration, which is leading to heightened interest in the rum category and its versatility,” said Aaron Bronfman, CEO of Pin Drop Rum, in a statement. “With the arrival of the Rum Renaissance and fans embracing the spirit like never before, Pin Drop Rum offers a unique style to experience ultra-premium rum from an unlikely place.”

Pin Drop Rum Co-Founder Ithalia Johnson added, “Pin Drop Rum was created as an ode to Harbour Island and its culture, which continue to inspire us on this journey.” 

Pin Drop Rum is a blend of 10- and 12-year-old Caribbean rums, pot-and-column stilled and aged in bourbon white oak barrels, the company notes. On the palate, it offers hints of banana, dried apricot, mango and candied tropical fruit, accompanied by a golden pour and velvety whisky finish, resulting in an elegant, balanced spirit, it says. 

Packaged in a 750-ml bottle, the 43% ABV Pin Drop Rum is available to purchase in specialty liquor stores and bottle shops in Florida, South Carolina and New York for a suggested retail price of $49.99, and is available direct to consumers in 32 states.
