In 1884 Danish sailor Valdemar Hanschell created Cockspur rum in Barbados. The rum has been an integral part of island life ever since. Cockspur is distilled using, what at the time was considered a revolutionary continuous still, along with more traditional pot stills. Cockspur Fine Rum is the companies flagship brand. In most territories outside of Barabos it is to be found alongside their 12 year old rum (Cockspur 12/VSOR) and the companies more recent spiced variant (Cockspur Spiced).
