Founder Will Edge is something of a spirits Womble - making good use of the things that he finds, the things that most people would leave behind. In this case, by-products from the sugar refining ie. molasses. After fermentation, the boozy liquid is distilled in a column still to create a very smooth fruity rum. It's then aged for 6-10 months in ex-bourbon barrels to smooth it further, to give it some spice and to impart that beautiful golden colour.
A very versatile, very smooth rum, with spicy, peppery notes and a round texture with a vanilla and raisin finish.
Very easy to drink on the rocks or just at home when used in a cocktail such as a Daiquiri.
