Burning Barn – Smoked Rum (40% 70cl)

£36.00

First, you’ll notice its intense smokiness. Then, you’re going to get hints of apple, molasses and burnt treacle. The nose is punchy, but it is beguilingly smooth, leaving a light, luscious coating on your mouth.

Why?

Because it’s the UK’s first and only hand-crafted smoked rum. We harvest, chip and season locally-grown apple wood then smoke it in our old apple juice tank – stainless steel with a bespoke oak lid. Then, we cold smoke our rum blend before diluting it to bottling strength.

We blend the finest molasses rich Column and Pot still rums from the Diamond Distillery, just outside Guyana’s capital Georgetown. We use a French Savalle still, a Wooden Coffey still and a Double Wooden Pot still, known as the Port Mourant. The rum is then matured in the Caribbean heat for two to three years in American oak casks that once held Bourbon whisky.

The fire also gave us the inspiration for our flavours. We cold smoke our smoked rum with wood from the apple trees our father planted over 30 years ago. The spices in our spiced rum are whole and roasted, by hand, on our farm. It’s been quite the journey, and cheers to what’s next…
