The original american spirit. 40% abv 80 proof “i know not why we should blush to confess that [rum] was an essential ingredient in american independence. Many events have proceeded from much smaller causes.” – president john q. Adams almost 250 years after revere’s midnight ride paul revere rum was created to reclaim america’s rum heritage in a bottle. Paul revere was an ordinary american who worked his way from a silversmith to that of an american patriot who embodies the american spirit. With a tremendous sense of pride and duty he set off on his midnight ride on april 18 1775. Along the way revere stopped through medford massachusetts the center of rum production at at time. He stopped at the home of sir issac hall who was the head of the local minute men militia and a rum distiller. There they had a meeting and shared a few drinks before revere continued on his journey to concord and lexington. Around the time of the revolutionary war rum was the most drank alcohol in america; so much so it is estimated that there were around forty rum distilleries in the colonies. In 1764 the british government passed the sugar act placing a heavy tax burden on the import of the most vital component of rums of production. Overnight the cost of rum production increased significantly. A year later the crown of england felt so inclined to pass the stamp act. Notwithstanding this continued to incite fervor and rebellion within the colonists’ quest for independence and began the rallying cry: “no taxation without representation!” not to be undone and with an air of revolution in their spirits the american colonists had enough.
