Here are a couple of ways:

Tanduay

Ron Barrelito

Probably hard to get shipped from wherever to wherever, if you can even order them, but both are great rum makers..

That site looks like a good deal..

Here is a Rye /Corn Whiskey distillery that has a combo package including a barrel- maybe they will sell the barrel separately??
Or maybe you could just get the barrel (or any barrel) and purchase bulk rum from a 'regional' distiller???

That is a good question, i sure someone somewhere has, but i haven't heard about the results. . . it sure sounds interesting..

Well have fun in your search...
