About Fortress Rum 

Fortress RumFounded in 1713, Louisbourg was one of North America’s busiest seaports and France’s key centre of trade and military strength in the New World. And rum was at the heart of this thriving centre. Brought ashore in large oak casks and rolled into the ledgers, rum was traded for local fish and lumber and re-exported to the colonies. Fortress™ Rum restores this 300-year history of the New France rum trade and is created by patiently maturing select Caribbean rum in oak barrels behind the massive stonewalls of the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.
