rum stills

the rum still

Rum is produced by fermenting and distilling sugarcane molasses or sugarcane juice and is usually aged in oak barrels. Rum can be produced using a variety of different styles of stills from small batch pot stills to large production column stills.


​Traditional Rum distilleries use a pot still with two "thumpers" or retorts. The vapor leaving the thumper has a higher ABV as thumpers are used to refine the spirit much the same as a plate in a rectification column.

A variety of methods can be used to produce rum.  Traditional pot stills lend themselves to producing traditional Caribbean style full bodied spirits. Column stills have been used extensively throughout history to produce rum, with some of the more famous rums being produced in large quantities using continuous column stills.  


The collection and use of dunder for use in fermentation is also a traditional rum technique. Dunder helps to lower pH, provides yeast nutrient, and provides critical esters to ensure good rum flavor.
