Multi-award winning distillery, Salcombe Distilling Co. is delighted to launch Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’, an outstanding transatlantic spiced gold rum.
Expertly crafted, their newest release is a blend of single estate gold rum produced in Salcombe, with the finest exotic rums and spices from the Caribbean. Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ is available in a 50cl bottle, £35, ABV 40% from salcombegin.com.
Every drop of spirit in Salcombe Distilling Co.’s award-winning range is distilled with unrivaled passion, care and attention, with Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ being no exception. Produced at their stunning waterside home in South Devon, one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat, Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ takes its name from the street on which the distillery is found.
Created in honour of the transatlantic trading history of the Salcombe Fruiters, first a single estate gold rum is produced by fermenting molasses, then distilling and ageing in Salcombe. Hand-sourced three year old pot still gold rum from Jamaica and three year old column still rum from the Dominican Republic are then blended with the single estate Salcombe gold rum, along with a unique spiced pineapple distillate, to produce Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’.
Drawing influence from the famous 19th century Salcombe fruit schooners and their precious cargo, Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ is inspired by the Salcombe Fruiters’ sailing vessels and intrepid sailors who risked all in pursuit of their cargoes of highly prized pineapples and exotic spices.
Nose – Sweet notes of soft brown sugar, rum baba cake, toasted coconut, spiced compote and a hint of pineapple on the nose.
Palate – Flavours of gingerbread cake, mince pie mix and warming vanilla with underlying fresh pineapple.
Finish – Rich and lingering with flavours of pecan nuts and a subtle floral sweetness.
Serving suggestion – Best served on its own over ice. It is also delicious with a premium ginger ale or ginger beer and garnished with a slice of dehydrated pineapple or fresh lime. Alternatively, try using the premium spirit in a spicy twist on an Old Fashioned.
Salcombe Rum ‘Island Street’ joins Salcombe Distilling Co.’s award-winning line-up of Salcombe Gin ‘Start Point’, ‘Rosé Sainte Marie’, the Voyager Series and New London Light non-alcoholic spirits and aperitifs.
