SAN FRANCISCO SPIRITS COMPETITION 2022
4 KEY STEPS
A meticulous selection is made of distillates from 3 distinct terroirs in the Caribbean Islands of Barbados, Trinidad and Jamaica.
The intention of the Master Blender is to showcase the typicity of these terroirs in a perfect balance while highlighting the differences of each region.
The Chosen unaged rums are selected from both traditional refinement methods, as the ultimate goal is a blend that has the richness and intensity from the distillation of molasses in pot still combined with the delicacy and lightness from sugarcane distillation in columns.
These rums now voyages across the ocean to France to be blended by Cognac Master Jerome Tessendier. His intent is to create a unique harmony using the same methods as for cognac, blending the different island terroirs with their diverse ﬂoral, fruity and spicy aromatic proﬁles.
The blend rests in mature French oak barrels on the banks of the Charente River for 3 months.
This last step gives a hint of roundness and smoothness to this fresh, fruity and floral blend.
The rum is then gradually reduced to 40%; no sugar is added.
A fruity rum with slight notes of vanilla and banana ﬂambé with a honey length. A subtle marriage between freshness and unctuosity which will enhance all your cocktails.
