Product of: Product of United Kingdom United Kingdom

This unaged white rum from Sussex, England, is unusual, not just for where it's distilled but for what it's made from. A blend of fresh sugar cane juice, Indian jaggery sugar, South American panela, unrefined whole cane sugar, molasses and some dunder is fermented in a rum yeast for 10-14 days.

Distillation is in a copper pot still with an aromax column. This artisanal rum is hand-bottled within a few meters of the still it is made in.

This award-winning rum also forms the base for Goldstone's other spirits.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 18/10/2023

Appearance:

Clear, transparent.

Aroma:

Pungent and funky with fruity esters. Caramelised pineapple and banana leaf.

Taste:

More fruity esters with caramelised pineapple, dark roasted coffee and toffee.

Aftertaste:

Long finish with lingering esters, dark coffee and black pepper spiritious spice.

Overall:

A very expressive, funky white rum that's not from Jamaica but Sussex, England. Goldstone suits a more citrus-heavy Daiquiri (try with an 8:3:2: Daiquiri formula).
