The Rum Society #40 Pot Still Guyana Rum (750ml)
The Rum Society is one of the most ambitious new products on the market today. The result of years of development and a desire to offer authentic pot stilled rums in their true form, without the additional of caramel coloring, sugar syrups or other adulterants. The idea is to offer true pot stilled rums from authentic historical distilleries which are not on the market today. The products are much closer to what our fledgling nation would have been consuming for a significant portion of its history, but after prohibition the full flavored nature of pot still rum fell out of favor. Now you can experience true pot still rum in its unadulterated form. The #40 is one of three offerings from the Society, which each represent a different style or place. #40 is drawn from famous 150 year old Versailles Single Pot Still crafted from local Greenheart hardwood and driven by direct steam infusion. One of the last wooden pot stills in use today, it offers a robust, yet elegant spirit that makes for an incredible base for complex aromatic cocktails and Tiki drinks, but also is wildly satisfying with sipped neat or with a cube of ice.
