THE STORY

The Man Behind the Beard

With his dark black hair, full grown beard and
impressive height, Blackbeard didn't have to rely on
force to execute his will. His image alone was enough to
earn a rank of loyal followers.

lackbeard's life was shrouded in mystery, resulting
in a legacy that was romanticized and respected well
beyond his death. Rumor has it that in his last battle,
Blackbeard was shot five times in the chest before he was
beheaded. Today, that legend lives on with our five shot
ritual, which is why we implore you to take five shots...
but don't lose your head.

he spirit of Blackbeard inspires every bottle of our
delicious spiced rum. Experience the legend of our
fearsome namesake through Caribbean fruits and spices
that deliver a deep, rich taste along with an
86 proof punch.
