Lemon Hart Demerara Rum 80 proof 750ml
Lemon Hart is the Rittenhouse Rye of the rum world. Named for Lehman Hart, the nineteenth century British colonial and distiller appointed to supply the British Royal Navy. Honoring this tradition, it is a blend of select 100% Demerara rums from the east bank. It is the classic dark Demerara navy style rum, full-bodied, complex, and flavorful, rich in molasses, baking spice, raisin, and caramel toffee aromas and flavors, with dried apricot and black tea notes on the finish. 80 proof, this brings round, smooth flavor to a rum & coke. The cane that grows along the banks of the Demerara River in Guyana has been used for rum production since the arrival of the first European inhabitants in the 17th century. The product of gradual consolidation, Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) is now the single rum producer in Guyana with treasure trove of historic stills and centuries of tradition under its umbrella.
