A Demerara Navy style rum distilled at Guyana’s Diamond Distillery from fermented black strap molasses. The blend contains some rum distilled in a wooden pot still at the distillery, the last working wooden stills in the world.
The blend contains pot still and continuously distilled rums aged 1½ to 3 years. Wood’s is often used as a ‘float’ on cocktails, particularly Tiki style drinks, due to its flavour and strength.

Wood’s 100 was acquired by William Grant & Sons in October 2002 but the iconic packaging remained unchanged. That was until April 2016 when a London based design agency, Purple Creative, decided the packaging needed updating. A heavy stubby bottle replaced the old tall round bottle. Cork replaced the more sensible screw cap. But worse the bold pastel illustration of the beaded sailor was replaced with a faded silhouette. Proof that some things are best left as they are.

The new bottle and label was launched with neck tags proclaiming "Our bottle's changed our rum hasn't" an it is claimed that the blend has remained unchanged since the brand was first established in 1887.
