Demerara navy rum still bottled at 57 percent. Smooth enough to enjoy neat, but also a killer choice for cocktails. Made using traditional pot stills. Wood's Navy Rum Wood's Navy Rum is a traditional British naval style rum, still bottled at 57% and made to the original navy recipe from 1887. The spirit is made from Demerara molasses and contains three different rums, all distilled at the Diamond Distillery in Guyana, South America, before being shipped to the UK. One of these rums is distilled in the 250-year old Versailles still; the only single wooden pot still in the world. The spirits are then aged in Scotland in American refilled oak barrels for an average of 3 years, before being blended and made into Wood's Navy Rum. Wood's is the only Demerara navy rum still bottled at 57% ABV, the original strength served on British Navy ships. Made using traditional pot stills, it is a smooth dark rum with punchy notes of brown sugar and thick toffee.
