As we built our Solera aging system, our barrels were tipped on their sides, filled with Bayou Rum, and then vertically stacked into a pyramid. The oldest rum barrels ended up right “on the ground” which is the meaning of “solera” in Spanish. When we harvest for a batch, the bottom barrel is tapped for part of its content to be bottled. Then that bottom barrel is topped off from the next oldest barrel above it, which is filled from the next oldest, and so on until we refill the top barrel with new rum to mingle with older aged rum. For the next aging interval it happens all over again. The benefit is a natural blending process for consistent taste and quality which gets better each time we harvest a batch. The result is delicious Bayou Reserve Rum.

Bayou® Rum is distilled from locally grown sugarcane in southern Louisiana, USA. Our molasses comes from the oldest family-owned and operated sugar mill in the United States. Every batch of Bayou Rum is distilled in copper pot stills, aged mostly in Bourbon casks under a solera system and bottled in house.
