La Mare Wine Estate is celebrating the launch of its new white rum, hand-crafted in Jersey.
This 100% locally made spirit is crafted from a base of premium cane sugar and dark molasses before being distilled in its cognac style copper pot. It is blended with pure local water and triple filtered before being bottled, a process which refines the character and creates a superior quality rum.
The latest spirit to be produced from the La Mare stable the white rum is a delight for the senses, aromas are predominantly of sugar cane and brown sugar with a hint of vanilla, coconut, fig and pear.
On the palate the taste is of white chocolate, sugar cane, vanilla and cream with chopped fine herbs and finished with a lingering nuttiness balanced with a warm smoothness.
La Mare’s Managing Director Tim Crowley said: “We’re delighted with our new Jersey White Rum, and I congratulate our production manager Daniel De Carteret for his newest creation which is 100% locally made. Rum is already a big market and industry experts are predicting that artisan rums are set to grow significantly in the next few years. It tastes delicious and is perfect for mixing and I’m sure it will be very popular with our customers.”
