Produced by the Newport Distilling Co., based in Rhode Island, Thomas Tew is a traditional style of rum made from backstrap molasses and tempered with local water before distillation in an 88 gallon copper pot still. The rum, said to have notes of coconut, vanilla, butterscotch and toffee, is named after a legendary pirate.
