Now that ships have shepherded bourbon above the seas, it’s time to dive deeper. Literally. Cayman Spirits Company’s Seven Fathoms Rum matures at a depth of 42 feet under the Caribbean Sea—also known as seven fathoms. A blend of one- to three-year-old rums, Seven Fathoms was inspired by tales of transoceanic voyages of wine and the effects that motion had upon its maturation. Merchants would ship wine on the ocean to faraway markets and recipients would detect a marked change in the flavor profile due to the constant motion and enhanced wood exposure.

The same concept of barrel agitation is used today by many distillers. But unlike other rum manufacturers, Seven Fathoms ages its spirit underwater, at a top secret location. Walker Romanica, Cayman Spirits’ co-founder, believes this to be rum’s ideal setting: The ocean’s distinct levels of pressure and humidity are unmatchable on land and the constant motion of the tides forces the rum in and out of the wood, contributing to its complexity.

Why the secret location? Because no one else on earth is aging rum this way. The sweet spot of this depth allows gentle currents to rock each barrel of Seven Fathoms Rum to full-bodied flavor. The solera-blended final spirit that emerges is smooth and dry with citrus and oaky vanilla notes. No wonder this rum is meant for leisurely sipping, backed by the steady rhythm of the tides.
