Hard Truth Distilling Co. releases limited edition White Oak Reserve Rum Small Batch No. 2
New batch of the award-winning rum is exclusively available at Big Woods and Hard Truth Hills for limited time
Nashville, Ind. – Hard Truth Distilling Co., a distillery located on 325 acres in Southern Indiana, has released an exclusive second batch of Hard Truth White Oak Reserve Rum. This very rare, award-winning aged rum was released today with limited availability.
The second batch of Hard Truth White Oak Reserve Rum is a contemporary take on traditional flavors, blending the sweet character of Hard Truth’s molasses-heavy, Caribbean-inspired white rum with a distinct flavor imparted by aging in new, charred oak barrels – just like those used for the distillery’s whiskeys. The result is a unique, fruit-forward spirit with subtle qualities of bourbon.
“Hard Truth’s first White Oak Reserve Rum release in 2019 was the first aged spirit released from our distillery,” said Bryan Smith, Master Distiller and General Manager at Hard Truth Distilling Co. “After an overwhelmingly positive response, we began production of this exclusive small batch. We always strive to create complex and balanced flavors in our spirits. For this release, we were able to accomplish this complexity and balance by blending together five custom barrel profiles.”
Hard Truth White Oak Reserve Rum is bottled at 83 proof with a 41.5% ABV. The exclusive aged rum is available in 750 ML bottles with a suggested retail price of $39.95 and will be available at all seven Big Woods locations and Hard Truth Hills.
“I cannot wait to share this limited batch of high-quality rum with everyone,” said Smith. “Our 2020 release of White Oak Reserve Rum finds a balance between the inherent sweetness of our molasses and cane sugar rum and the smokey, rich oak characters that come from utilizing new charred and toasted white oak casks. New barrels aren’t just for bourbon anymore.”
In the coming months, Hard Truth Distilling Co. plans to launch additional products including
