The rum itself is a blend of pot and column distilled molasses rums aged 3 to 6 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The beans are infused is the blend of rums for 3-4 weeks.

Elements Eight rums are the creation of Carl Stephenson and Andreas Redlefsen, both long veterans of the spirits industry, particularly rums. As the name suggests their rums are marketed around the concept of eight elements: 1) environment (where the cane is grown), 2) sugar cane, 3) water, 4) yeast, 5) distillation, 6) tropical ageing, 7) blending and 8) filtration.
