Starting with a high-quality molasses, Flag Hill Spiced Rum is fermented and distilled at Flag Hill Winery and Distillery in Lee. It’s given a taste of sweetness with New Hampshire maple syrup before macerating in hand-sliced Tahitian vanilla beans, cinnamon and other spices. Aging for nine months in barrels that had previously stored bourbon adds depth and a bit of smoothness. Sip it neat or use in cocktails.
