Maggie CampbellMaggie Campbell was enchanted by the alchemy of spirits at a young age with her first dram in Scotland at the Oban distillery when she was 20. Now as Head Distiller at Privateer Rum, Campbell diligently crafts the Silver Reserve Rum inspired by her love of aromatic eau de vie and the True American Amber Rum refined by her whiskey experience.

Her advice for aspiring distillers, “Read all the books you can and knock on every distillery door you can get to. Having mentors with different philosophies gives you a whole world of tools to pull from.”

About Privateer Rum

Privateer Rum

Founded in Ipswich, Mass., by Andrew Cabot, the namesake and direct descendant of American patriot, privateer, and rum-maker Andrew Cabot (1750–1791), Privateer Rum has pioneered a new standard in rum—one of superior quality and character. Honoring the spirit of American independence and conviction, Privateer Rum relentlessly focuses on quality at every point in the production, rejecting common industry practices including the use of sweeteners and artificial colorings or flavorings.

What is Art of the Cocktail?

Boston Center for the Arts and Blogger Markeya Williams bring you a series that highlights the artistic side of cocktails from creation to consumption where local distillers, bartenders and industry insiders escort participants on an intimate and unique taste experience among the art and artists of the historic BCA campus.
