Product of: Saint Lucia
Flavoured with cinnamon, ginger, clove, star anise, vanilla, honey, nutmeg, orange, lemon and coconut - all of which are indigenous to St Lucia where this blend of pot and column distilled rums are made. The fruits and spices are cask infused before final blending with the other single rums.
Elements Eight rums are the creation of Carl Stephenson and Andreas Redlefsen, both long veterans of the spirits industry, particularly rums. As the name suggests their rums are marketed around the concept of eight elements: 1) environment (where the cane is grown), 2) sugar cane, 3) water, 4) yeast, 5) distillation, 6) tropical ageing, 7) blending and 8) filtration.
Launched 10-June 2010.
Review and Tasting

Clear, golden amber.
Honeyed orange zest, clove, aniseed and warm ginger cake / fruitcake.
Mellow, lightly spiced orange and ginger. Retains a fruitcake-like quality with honey and vanilla balancing cinnamon and clove.
Pleasantly spicy warmth through the long honey and fruitcake finish.
Exotic spices do indeed feature in this honeyed and fruity rum. A great example of a spiced rum.
