PITTSBURGH, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries, distiller of the multiple award-winning Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka and BLY Silver Rum, has announced the launch of its newest spirit BLY SILVER RUM 105. The new spirit will roll out nationally over the next few months and is currently available at the distillery store.

Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries, distillers of award-winning Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka and BLY Silver Rum. The distillery is located a few miles outside of Pittsburgh in Glenshaw, PA and is open to the public for free tours and tastings every Saturday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

"I wanted to elevate our BLY Silver Rum, and took inspiration from historical navy strength rum," said Barry Young, cofounder and Master Distiller of Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries.  "While navy strength rum was typically a 114 proof dark rum, BLY 105 is a clear spirit created by using the same recipe as our 80 proof rum, but diluted with less water which creates a spirit with about 30 percent more alcohol. This creates more flavor and mouth feel."

BLY Silver Rum 105 is distilled with locally sourced supreme baking molasses from the countryside of Pennsylvania. The molasses was chosen due to its high quality, and to impart more flavor than processed sugar or sugar cane used in most rums. The flavor profiles of this spirit contain notes of butterscotch and vanilla, giving it a clean finish. Similar to its counterpart, BLY Silver Rum, BLY 105 is distilled in single batches. The molasses is gently stirred, heated but not cooked and never rushed to prevent scorching and a burnt tasting spirit.

"As with BLY Silver Rum, our process with 105 remains unconventional, but the added proof allows the spirits to be used in the same proportions," said Young. "So, if a cocktail calls for 1 ounce of 80 proof you can still use 1 ounce of 105 to create a cocktail with a more intense rum flavor since the proof is higher and the flavors are more intense."

Each batch of BLY Silver Rum 105 is carefully filled, corked and labeled by hand to meet the distillery's high quality standards. To ensure quality in taste, Young uses what he calls a "unique Instinct Palate Distillation method," which means that the determining factor as to when the distillation process is complete is purely based off of taste and his instinct alone. There is no automation involved whatsoever in this process. 

The Distillery is now open to the public on Saturdays only. For more information, please visit,
