Sebago Lake Distillery

Sebago Lake Distillery has been making rum in Gardiner, Maine since 2013. These are the rums they’re currently producing:

  • Sebago Lake Original Rum, a pot-distilled, molasses-based rum that’s infused with a blend of five aromatics and caramel. Bottled unaged at 80 proof.

  • Spider Island Rum, which starts with the same base ingredients as the Original Rum, but contains some of the fringes of the tails phase of its distillation. The distillery also adds some molasses that’s caramelized at a very high temperature before it’s bottled unaged at 80 proof. They say the high temperature in the caramelization process causes the sugar to break down and impart smokiness rather than sweetness.

  • Portland Barrel Rested Rum, a blend of their pot-distilled, molasses-based rums that have aged in used rye whiskey barrels for over a year. Bottled at 86 proof.

  • KOPI Coffee Flavored Rum, a blend of their unaged rums and roasted Indonesian Sumatra coffee. Bottled at 80 proof.
