Wray and Nephew Rum
Made by the Jamaican distillers Wray and Nephew and bottled in the 1940s using different blends, the oldest of which was about twenty-five-years old, some of the liquid dates back to about 1915. There are only four unopened bottles in the world.
The distillers who bottled this blend were forced to abandon their traditional distillation methods in the mid-1930s due to the Mai Tai craze draining their supplies. That makes this rum especially valuable, as it comes from that lost tradition.
