Plantation Stiggins Fancy Pineapple Rum
A fantastic treat from the Plantation range originally created by the company's cellar master Alexandre Gabriel and drinks historian David Wondrich for Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans in 2015. To make it, they infuse the rinds of Queen Victoria pineapples in their white rum for a week then distil it, and infuse the fruit of the pineapples in dark rum for three months. These are married together and left to age in casks for three months.
Pineapple deliciousness galore! Also, if you're wondering about the name, it comes from the character Reverend Stiggins in Pickwick Papers, whose favourite drink was 'pineapple rum'.
Light notes of brown sugar and ripe banana at first, before waves of juicy, aromatic pineapple. Subtle baking spice adds balance.
