A handcrafted custom blend of select regional aged rums from across the Caribbean; triple distilled from cane sugar molasses and aged in American old oak casks. The result is a unique character with exceptional taste and smoothness.
Tiny, volcanic, and every sailor’s favourite desert island, Jost Van Dyke is only eight square miles in size with just 222 permanent residents. With White Bay, it lays claim to what is consistently voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, and the Soggy Dollar Bar (proprietor Jerry O’Connell) only adds to the sheer sense of Caribbean fantasy-come-true and is only accessible by ferry or private boat. The Soggy Dollar bar is appropriately named as there is no dock at the beach, the only way to reach the bar is to anchor off the beach, swim to shore, and then pay for drinks with wet money. This is the birthplace of the legendary Painkiller cocktail (dark rum, cream of coconut, pineapple and orange juice, topped with Grenadian nutmeg) and you’d better watch out because it’s more potent here than anywhere else in the BVI.
Precise production details are somewhat limited, as Soggy Dollar is a blender, not a distiller, and detailed origins of these rums are unclear. Soggy Dollar Rum has two expressions: a “dark rum” and a spiced rum.
