We are excited to announce that the accolades for Fortress Rum continue with the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) naming us their “Spirits Product of the Year”. This recognition builds upon Fortress Rum’s bronze medal at the 15th annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition in March of this year.

“We’re honoured to have the NSLC recognize Fortress Rum as Spirits Product of the Year”, said Glynn Williams, President, Authentic Seacoast Distilling Company Ltd. “We wish to thank the NSLC and our customers for the enthusiastic support our rum has received. Together with our Sea Fever™ Rum, we are bringing back the proud rum trading history that has defined Nova Scotia for centuries. We look forward to exporting our rum across Canada to share our rich history and traditions with all Canadians.”

Pius Walker, the NSLC’s Spirits Category Manager said, “We are delighted to recognize Authentic Seacoast Distilling for their success with Fortress Rum. This uniquely Nova Scotian rum was our top selling amber rum in the past quarter and led to unprecedented sales of Nova Scotia spirits. The NSLC is proud to partner with local companies to help showcase the quality of products that we produce in Nova Scotia.”

Fortress™ Rum restores the 300-year history of the New France rum trade and is created by patiently maturing select Caribbean rum in oak barrels protected within the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. A smooth and well-structured amber rum, this premium, over-proof spirit delivers notes of oak, vanilla and tropical fruit.

A sincere thank you from the Authentic Seacoast family to you and yours for your continued support of our fine spirit. Cheers!
