Idle Spirits

Idle Spirits was founded by David Flint Wood, who creates blends of rums from across the Caribbean and beyond. He used to live in Dunmore Town on Harbour Island in the Bahamas for almost thirty years, where a sign hung at Government Dock containing a list of regulations. One rule stated there should be 'no loafing or idle assembly', a notice that inspired Wood to celebrate those who do the opposite: being idle in the sun, drinking rum.

He enlisted a third-generation family of rum blenders in Colombia to create his first blend blend, Idle Assembly Rum, which features rums from Trinidad, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and Panama. They were aged in bourbon white oak barrels for between 5 and 20 years, and 6,500 bottles were filled for the first batch.

The bottle design was inspired by what Wood felt was the heyday of island travel, the ’50s and ’60s, when seaplanes were all the rage. The hand-made illustration depicts one coming in to land between the reef and a palm-lined beach, and the label is wrapped around a standard whisky bottle, a tribute to a time when the rum of the islands was decanted into the most commonly available vessel.
