Unquestionably Belize's favorite rum, it is also the country's best selling liquor.
Created in 1964, One Barrel is Traveller's flagship brand and a pioneer in Belizean dark rums. Aged and hand crafted, this distinctive product is a skillful blend of the finest spirits creating a truly exquisite rum. Dubbed Ďthe come back kid', it was brought back after years of meticulous perfecting. One Barrel impressed the palates of connoisseurs to win golden awards in esteemed Quality and Spirit competitions throughout the Caribbean.
Aged to perfection in Kentucy Oak Barrels for 12 months, One Barrel acquires a medium-body consistency characterized by smooth and distinct flavors. A softly sweet taste complements its bouquet of aromas to create an unforgettably palatable finish.
One Barrel is a very aromatic rum with lots of flavor. Itís nose has been described as "floral" specifically reminicent of hibiscus and papaya fruit. Tasted straight, One Barrel is quite smooth without a "bite" to it. You can taste the memory of the molasses that was used to make the rum. The molasses flavor isn't overpowering, but it's there in the background. This makes the rum mix well with juices and Colas, which are the most common mixers for rum drinks. The hint of molassas seems to "complete" the flavor of the mixers, actually improving the taste when compared to the mixer alone. People who taste One Barrel rum usually end up being One Barrel drinkers, even if they hated rum before they tried this one.
