What is Overproof Rum?
An Overproof Rum is any Rum that has an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) of 57% or above.
In terms of alcoholic beverages definition of Proof (in overproof) according to Webster's dictionary is "Alcoholic strength indicated by a number that is twice the percent by volume of alcohol present"
For example, 151 Proof rum would be 75.5% ABV. We have a few rums on this list that match and even go beyond that percentage.

What do you mix Rum Bar Overproof With?
Extremely popular in Jamaica, it contains a blend of three unaged pot stilled rums and is very drinkable neat. However we recommend you mix this in an ice cold drink. We recommend mixing it with fresh fruit juices or lemonade and ginger beer.

Developed by Proof Drinks, Cut Overproof is the only overproof spiced rum on the list. Coming in at 75.5% ABV, Cut Overproof is a blend of Trinidadian Rum and Jamaican rum from the Worthy Park Estate.

Packed with both strength and flavour you'll taste Vanilla, Butterscotch, Cinnamon and Coconut Oil on the palette.
What does the rum mix well with?
It will give all your favourite mixers with spiced rum an additional kick, and that kick means an extra 37.5% ABV or more in strength. Enjoy responsibility and be generous with the mixer. We recommended Cranberry Juice as the go-to mixer with Cut Overproof

The strongest Rum on the list St Vincent's Sunset Rum has an alcohol strength of 84.5% ABV. This White Rum is molasses based and distilled using the column still method.
Award Winning Rum

Ensure you dilute this Rum before you drink it. In St Vincent it is enjoyed with ice cold water with lime. Also a great option for any rum punch! You can mix it with pineapple juice or if you prefer fizzy mixers, lemonade is our recommendation.
Again be sure to enjoy Sunset rum responsibly.
