Salcombe White Rum ‘Whitestrand’

£36.95

Vendor: TGTMT

This outstanding white rum is the first of its kind from Salcombe Distilling Co. and builds from the brilliant success of our gold Salcombe Rum cask aged release in 2019.

Salcombe Rum ‘Whitestrand’ has been lovingly crafted in very small batches of 80-90 bottles. With gently fermented first-rate molasses, unrefined sugar and a blend of yeasts it is twice distilled for smoothness on with a careful selection of botanicals and spices included in the second distillation. Unlike most rums, Salcombe Rum has no sugar added after distillation, and the result is an exceptionally sophisticated rum with an outstanding balance and spectrum of flavour.

This rum is beautifully smooth and fresh with a gently spiced finish. A crisp lime citrus nose is complemented by flavours of apricot, banana and long pepper with underlying subtle hints of coconut.

Description

Famous for carrying fresh fruits and spices back from exotic lands, the locally built 19th century Salcombe Fruiters often ventured to the West Indies to acquire a much sweeter and more potent payload; sugar, molasses and rum.

In the tropical Caribbean heat, puncheons or hogsheads of this rich spirit were carefully stowed on board these ships and surrounded by coconuts to protect the precious cargo during their perilous journey back across the Atlantic.

Salcombe Rum has been lovingly crafted in Salcombe with gently fermented first-rate molasses and distilled on traditional 60l hand beaten copper pot stills. This exceptional rum reawakens a bygone era of trade, carrying forth a unique spirit of adventure.
