The history began one day in 2011, when Mark Lascelles, the brother of the 8th Harwood Earl, along with some employees of the Harewood estate in central England, went down to the palace cellars. They were supposed to take stock of items and alcoholic beverages stored in the cellars. Looking through old mouldy bottles, they stumbled upon a real treasure – rum from 1780. It was placed in the palace collection at the beginning of the 19th century, when Barbados was a British colony. Totally forgotten, the rum was waiting in silence and growing older.
Shortly after it had been found, the 1780 Harewood Rum bottle was moved to the Wealth Solutions company collection. In 2015, its owner shares its special trophy with the enthusiasts of special watches and rare spirits. Almost 250 years from its distillation, the alcoholic beverage is launched in the market in a new form – as part of the Rum Watch project. Created with Swiss watch manufacture Speake-Marin.
Now there is another opportunity to become the owner of a drop of this unusual drink. This will be possible thanks to the Spirit Coins project, whose originators are Wealth Solutions experts. As part of this idea, the Harewood Rum 1780 drop will be closed in the gold Rum Coin.
