Deadhead 10 Years Old Rum
Mexico- Single blend rum rested in oak barrels since 2011 to celebrate the 10th anniversary. Each amber black bottle displays a black matte, copper foil embossed label, which is hand-numbered and signed by the master distiller. Only 6,000 bottles were produced.
To celebrate Deadhead’s ten years of commitment to making the very finest rum and putting Méxican rum its rightful place on the global rum map, they asked their master blender Jorge to create a 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Deadhead rum and he did not disappoint.
Deadhead 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Rum 750ml is extraordinary. This elegant 80-proof spirit features a whiskey-style nose of stone fruit and maple syrup. Brown sugar melts on the tongue, followed by cigar-leaf and sassafras. Toasted pecan and oatmeal drive even more textual complexity. Oak and leather are magnificent on the finish, which delivers pure depth of character.
Each amber glass bottle features a black-matte, copper-foil embossed label that is hand-numbered. This sleek, stunning 10th Anniversary Limited Edition bottle will surely be a back-lit beauty on top shelves of bars and Tiki lounges everywhere.

The shrunken head of an enemy was kept as a trophy; taken for blood honor and spiritual renewal.
The image of Deadhead’s bottles is likely indelible to all who’ve seen them. They pay tribute to the Shuar, who were known to collect the shrunken heads (tsantsas) of their vanquished foes, believing that the soul remained within. While Deadhead’s vessels don’t contain souls, they do contain award-winning spirits: The Cask Aged Rum is aged for six years in toasted American and Chiapas oak barrels, and the recipe for its slow-roasted, cacao-infused Dark Chocolate Rum was inspired by ancient recipes used by Mayan emperors.
