Rude Mechanicals Vigneron Rum 42% NV
A (mostly) English Golden Rum, made using pure sugar cane molasses, double distilled in 200litre copper alembics, and finished in barrels which have aged red wines from the Rhône.
A deep, amber-gold in appearance, with a heady nose of cocoa powder, allspice & toasted hazelnut. Gently nutty & textural on the palate with multiple layers of flavour including Seville orange marmalade, praline and red apple, Vigneron Rum finishes with length, tight grain and slight tannic grip from its time in demi-muids. This is a sipping rum for sure, so a single cube of ice is all that’s needed to enjoy it to the full. Alternatively, as a base for rum cocktails Vigneron Rum’s naturally drier, textural style is best matched to Marmalade Mojitos or a Rum Old Fashioned.
