Gubba Silver Coconut Rum from Colorado

Gubba Silver artisanal American rum is made with natural coconut to produce a lightly flavored, smooth, clear spirit.

This rum is produced, blended and bottled in small batches at a craft distillery in Denver, Colorado. The process begins with organic evaporated cane fermented in stainless steel.

Gubba Silver American rum is made with natural coconutThe fermented wash is double distilled, first in a classic Alembic copper pot before a second distillation in a copper column hybrid with 20 plates.

After distillation, the base rum is blended with an infusion of natural coconut in high proof rum, then diluted with Colorado Rocky Mountain snow melt water to bottling proof.

The result is a subtle coconut flavored spirit that goes down easy.

Gubba Silver Tasting Notes

Subtle aromas of coconut water precede a bit of ethanol, butter cookie and river rock. On the palate, soft coconut creme and a mild sweetness reveals a slight viscosity at mid-palate, which seems to enhance the tropical notes into the finish.

Gubba Silver Rum was designed to be enjoyed on the rocks, but also provides a wonderful tropical base for cocktails. The brand likes to describe this lightly flavored rum as being “wicked smooth,” a descriptor that’s entirely fitting.

The 750ml bottle of Gubba Silver Rum, at 35% abv, sells for about $22.
