Default The Rums of The Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation

Newfoundlander's Rum

A relatively new rum from the Newfoundland Labradour Liquor Corporation (NLC) with probably the most inspired labels I have ever seen on a rum bottle. There are six different labels to collect in all, each a representation of Newfoundland culture created by Canadian Artist David Blackwell. Read about it here:

Default George Street Spiced Rum

This isn’t an ordinary spiced rum. For starters, the rum itself is from Guyana, the home of the world famous Demerara Rum. Some of the rum in the blend is two years old, some of the rum in the blend is 5 years old, and some of the rum in the blend is 7 years old. And finally, this aged Guyanan Rum has been crafted into an aged, spiced rum using extractions and distillations of real spices. I was sent a sample of the George Street Spiced Rum by Gregg Kerr, of the NLC and after much labour I have completed my review.

Default Famous Newfoundland Screech

“…As the story goes, the commanding officer of the first detachment was taking advantage of Newfoundland hospitality for the first time and was offered a drop of rum as an after dinner drink. Seeing his host toss back the liquor with nary a quiver, the unsuspecting American adhered to local custom and downed the drink in one gulp.

The look of shock and the glorious shades of color on the American’s face were overshadowed by the bloodcurdling howl made by the poor fellow as he managed to regain his breath. Sympathetic persons from miles around rushed to the house to assist the poor man in such obvious agony and of course to satisfy their curiosity as to what was going on. Among the first to arrive was a garrulous old American sergeant who pounded on the door and demanded “What the cripes was that ungodly screech?”

The taciturn Newf who had answered the door replied simply, “The screech? Tis the rum, me son.”….”


And that is the tale told by the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC) on The Famous Newfoundland Screech website regarding their infamous Rum. Whether the story behind the rum is literal truth, or whether it is a finely fictionalized account of a real event is irrelevant now. The story, and the rum have entered folklore, and good marketing dictates that the rum hereafter be referred to as, Newfoundland Screech.

Default Review: Old Sam Demerara Rum

The original recipe for Old Sam Demerara Rum stretches back to 1797 when Edward Young & Co. (from London & Liverpool, England) imported their rum from the Caribbean (primarily from Guyana) and brought the first barrels marked ‘Old Sam’ to London, England. Today the rum no longer travels to England to be blended and bottled, rather it travels to Newfoundland where it is blended and bottled by the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC).

Default London Dock Rum

A couple of rums from the NLC which harken back to the days when the rum was shipped to the London Docks:

Review: London Dock Rum (Favell’s 100 Proof)

Review: London Dock Rum (Favell’s 70 Proof)

Both rums are Corby Brands which originate in Guyana but are blended and bottled by the NLC
