Choice Mary Read‘s
Calico Jack Rackham - born December 21, 1682 in Bristol, England, died 17 November 1720 in Santiago de la Vega, Jamaica - was an 18th century pirate captain. His name was derived from the colorful calico clothing he wore. Nowadays, he is well-known for his crew, including the two most famous female pirates: Anne Bonny, with whom he also had two children, and Mary Read. Anne Bonny was the daughter of an Irishman, who emigrated to the USA and became a rich plantation owner. Since Anne was too bored of plantation life, she moved to the nearby Charleston harbor. In Charleston Anne met James Bonny, a penniless adventurer and sailor whom she married. Together with her husband she embarked in New Providence (today's Nassau). This city was considered the capital of the pirates. Here she met Calico Jack Rackham, who was supposed to have invented the pirate flag Jolly Roger, left her husband and hired on Calico Jack's ship. Because women were not welcome on board pirate ships, she dressed as a man. Later in New Providence, a new man, Mark Read, hired on Anne's and Calico Jack's ship. Anne noticed the new man - who, however, on closer examination revealed that he was also a woman: Mary Read.
The two women and Calico Jack were now cruising, plundering and murdering the Caribbean and were notorious and feared as a team. The prehistory of Mary Read is more ambiguous. It is certain that she was born in London in 1685 and died of a fever in 1721/1722. Whether she hired in New Providence or - as you can find too - on a Dutch slave ship hijacked by Calico Jack and then taken as a pirate in Calico's crew is unclear. In 1720, Rackham's ship, the "Revenge," was attacked by an English warship. By this time, they were in Jamaica. The ship crew - apart from the two women - was drunk and hid under deck. Anne Bonny and Mary Read fought alone. Their resistance did not last long. When the other pirates came on deck, Mary shot in anger and killed one of the crew. On 16 November 1720 the judgment for Calico Jack, Anne, Mary and the crew was appealed: death by hanging. The execution of the two women was postponed as they were supposed to be pregnant. Mary Read died one or two years later by a fever, nothing is known about Anne Bonny's further life.

Anne Bonny, the mother of Calico Jack’s

children, is represented in our softer rum.

Composed of 8-year old top rums from

Panama, it's a beautiful amber color.

A unique and unrivalled fragrance of strawberries and

apricots builds the opening, which blends with the

nuances of vanilla and caramel. On the palate, the rum

surprises with its pleasantly soft and sweetly fruity

character and the interesting interplay of fruits, caramel

and vanilla. Very soft and persistent in the finish.

Mary Read was the wilder of the two

ladies, and even shot a member of the

crew from her anger. For her, we created

a great rum with fragrances of fine toffee

and vanilla.

This beautifully soft rum was created from a blend

of the finest 12-year old rums from the Caribbean

and shows itself in a beautiful bronze. Regarding

the taste, "Mary Read's Choice" is a more typical

rum compared to "Anne Bonny's Favourite". The

rum unfolds a beautiful taste of honey on the

tongue, perfectly finished by notes of cinnamon

and toffee and an echo of fine soft sweetness and

spiciness.

Notice: Due to a production error during the manufacturing of the german labels in 2018, all the bottles from 2018 forward are labeled as a blend of 8-year-old rums. Even though the rum is actually a blend of 12-year-old rums, it is sold and advertised as a blend of 8- year-old rums to prevent any confusions . We apologize for this error and promise to correct the problem as soon as possible - no later than with the next production cycle.
Explosive The Cannoneer‘s

With the cannoneer the first member of the

crew without name gets honoured. For a

cannoneer the rum has to be somehow more

explosive. That is why „The Cannoneer‘s

Explosive“ is being produced with 48% vol.

alc. Still this excellent rum remains mild, soft

and creamy.

This rum is a dark-chocolate-bomb. It smells like finest

cacao and the smell gets reconfirmed when you taste

it. On the palate, the rum surprises with very nice

flavours of nougat and dark chocolate. The rum is

labelled in bronce colours, the material of the cannons

at that time and has a black-powder-coloured capsule.

The Cannoneer‘s Explosive is being produced in small

batches of 390 bottle. Each bottle has a unique serial

number showing, year, batch no. and bottle no. within

batch.

Tranquilizer The Doctor‘s

The fourth label of the brand is the second

„nameless“ crew-member, the crew‘s doctor.

It has been classically matured in former

bourbon white oak barrels for 21 years and

thererfore truly lives up to its name as a

tranquilizer.

On the palate, the rum initially surprises you with a

taste of hazelnut and caramel, while later you find

some nougat notes with a predominantly mild and

smooth finish that is long lasting in your mouth. A

truly indulgent experience for lovers of fine smooth

spirits.

With the upcoming years further labels, such as

the crew‘s Chef, the Helmsman and the Captain of

course, are waiting in line.
