The Real McCoy Rum

The Real McCoy Rum

The Real McCoy Rum is based on the story of Bill McCoy, the pioneer rum runner of the Prohibition era. McCoy made a name for himself because he never adulterated the alcohol. While copy-cat rum runners would dilute their alcohol with wicked chemicals like turpentine, wood alcohol and prune juice, McCoy never did. The sullied products were nicknamed "Booze," "Hooch" and "Rot Gut," while McCoy’s quality spirits became known as "The Real McCoy." That is the philosophy of The Real McCoy to this day.
