If the wording on the label isn't changed then it is no longer available. What ever is on the shelves is the last of it. Supposedly "demerara rum" can't be used on the bottle.
Not sure why.

Mosaiq Inc. (Canada) owns the brand. Not terrible news.

Is that good or bad news?

The linked article simply mentions a change of ownership, which really only changes who signs the paychecks for the Lemon Hart employees.

Rum Renaissance is in Miami this weekend and I think pretty much all of the great Rum Drinkers and Rum Makers will be in town. I'll send out scouting parties to find out what can be found out and report back some time next week after the hangover lifts.

By all accounts, what LH is in stores and warehouses now is it. My sources say it will no longer be available, and if it is, it may well be changed, for the worse.

I think Demerara Distillers Ltd. (El Dorado) owns the rights to use "Demerara Rum" on bottles of rum in the US. LH/Mosaiq would have to remove the phrase from the label.


Start hoarding? I started last year when I heard of the production slow down. You only slow production for a few reasons. A corporate sale, too much stock (who here has wondered why their local stockist had wayyy too much Lemon Hart on the shelf?? ) or closing up.

Going with positive vibes here, maybe it's a sign that LH's JAMAICAN RUM could once again appear on shelves in the 50 states...Oh please! And if that's possible, why not a grass roots effort to have W&N produce DAGGER RUM for consumption again!

It's always good to be a dreamer...

I second that!

Actually a store near me had 12 bottles of LH 151 (I bought 4 when I heard the 151 might disappear), and another one must have 20+ bottles of LH 80 (a few months ago, I don't go there often).

That's actually not possible.

It seems unlikely that Mosaiq would purchase the brand just to remove it from the market, that is not really a good way to make a return on their investment.

From the conversation going on at the Ministry of Rum that would appear to be the case.

http://www.ministryofrum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4157

Mosaiq is a Canadian importer and presumably it will be sold in Canada, but sadly not in the US.

For the 80 it won't be the end of the world as El Dorado will be available, but for the 151 it's going to be a big problem.

Didn't we go through all of this before a couple of years ago -- Lemon Hart is going away, get it while you can, etc. etc. Then lo and behold it's available again with little lag time. If I had to guess, I would say it's most likely that a deal will soon be struck with an American distributor and it will be as available as ever. I think the American market is too valuable for a beverage handler not to tap into it. Mi dos centavos.

it may not be intentional, but it would seem one way to inspire sales of anything is for people to think that it's going away!
