about us

Mountain Peak Espresso Rum

Created from pure molasses and real, fresh-roasted coffee, Mountain Peak is the perfect marriage between West Indies style rum and robust espresso. Using coffee beans grown in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, we infuse an already flavorful island rum with rich, creamy coffee flavors that greet your nose and embrace your taste buds.

Made with Jamaica's Blue Mountain coffee

We’re the only spirit that uses real Blue Mountain coffee, some of the rarest and most desired beans in the world

Full-Strength

This is not your mother’s coffee spirit. Mountain Peak is 80 proof, premium rum with bold espresso flavor and a smooth, creamy finish.

Proprietary Technology

Mountain Peak is proofed with alkaline water sourced directly from the clouds using our proprietary technology for superior drinkability.

Award-Winning

We use the best ingredients and uncompromising care to create an unparalleled drinking experience, but you don’t have to take our word for it.

Our Process

How it’s made

Step One

Every batch of Mountain Peak starts with fresh water and pure, dark brown molasses. The mixture is carefully heated and then fermented for a week to allow an array of deep, complex flavors to develop.

Step Two

We copper pot distill the fermented “distiller’s beer” and then load it into a second copper pot where it’s distilled again to further refine and concentrate the delicate rum flavors. 

Step Three

We then hand-steep the resulting spirit with real, natural coffee before proofing it down to 40% alcohol (80 proof) with our very own Hilton Head Island cloud-sourced water. 

Step four

Finally, we lightly sweeten the spirit with pure cane sugar to round it out for pure drinking enjoyment.
