The Black Dog Rum 3 Year Old, 7 Year Old and 12 Year Old join Rhode Island offerings from MS Walker. The Black Dog Rums were born from its namesake Massachusetts taverns and lifestyle brand. Founder Captain Robert S. Douglas cultivated a passion for the sea and sailing ships from his youth on Martha’s Vineyard. In 1964, he designed and built the extreme topsail for the schooner, Shenandoah, sailing New England waters and now a living piece of American marine history. With a long seafaring history as the brand’s charting course, the line honors the many historic rum distilleries, rumrunners and smugglers of the Massachusetts Colony through Prohibition until today. The Black Dog Rum line also includes its recently released Barkin’ Stormy, a ready-to-drink cocktail made with The Black Dog Rum 7 Year Old blended with its spicy ginger beer. The Black Dog Rum’s master rum blender sources premium aged rums, which are then blended and bottled in small batches in Massachusetts.
