Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye Review

Thanks to that Lin-Manuel Miranda guy, there is no way that anything written about Hercules Mulligan can’t start with this…

Brrrah, brraaah! I am Hercules Mulligan
Up in it, lovin’ it, yes I heard ya mother said “Come again?” (Ayy)
Lock up ya daughters and horses, of course
It’s hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets (Wow)
No more sex, pour me another brew, son!
Let’s raise a couple more…
To the revolution!

Now that we got that out of our system, let’s talk about Hercules Mulligan, the bottled and ready to drink cocktail that is a 50/50 blend of Run, Rye Whiskey, ginger, and spices

Here’s the backstory of this intriguing beverage taken from a press release that recently landed in our inbox:

Since its inception in late 2019, Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye has become an award-winning ready-to-drink craft cocktail that has become a staple for the at-home bar, selling more than 15,000 bottles in just under two years —all through their direct-to-consumer partner and leading member’s club for spirits enthusiasts, Flaviar. Today, the company announces its launch in New York, bringing this exceptional drink to an even wider audience, sure to become fans of this bottled Irish Old Fashioned.

Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye was inspired by the man himself ­– the tailor, Irish immigrant, spy, and unsung hero of the American Revolution. It is a 50:50 blend of Caribbean aged rum and home-grown American rye whiskey inspired by the revolutionary era. Fresh, organic, ginger root is macerated in the rum and rye blend, and a splash of bitters is added, ensuring this liberating libation can be enjoyed on the rocks as a ready-made Irish Old Fashioned.

We’ve had many a ready-to-drink cocktail over the past few years. While there were several winners, most have been somewhat lacking. The fact that Hercules Mulligan is an all spirits concoction with no added sugars or other flavors had us intrigued, so we were more than a little optimistic about this product.
