Rumson’s Rum, Salem

What’s Unique: Rumson’s travels the Caribbean to choose a variety of aged rums, then imports them to their distillery in Salem to blend into the brand’s desired profile.

In the works: A bottle redesign will enable the distiller to offer new flavors and types in the next year—perhaps a single barrel-aged rum or some new flavors. 

Fun fact: Owner/president Eric Glass has a private collection of more than 100 bottles.
