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.
