Renegade Dunfermline – Pot Still Rum

Renegade Dunfermline – Pot Still Rum bottle

70cl, 50% ABV

Renegade Dunfermline Pre-Cask is one of the first terroir-driven releases from the Renegade Rum Distillery. It's an unaged, single farm origin traditional pot still rum produced from fresh sugarcane juice of the Lacalome Red variety. The cane is harvested from Dunfermline farm on the north-eastern coast of Grenada and is distilled using a double-retort pot still to give a richly-flavoured fruity rum.

 

Sweet overtones of figs and stone fruit arrive on the nose, with subtle waves of caramel. This continues on the palate with golden raisins and fresh lemon zest, finishing with a smooth texture.

 

Situated in mountainous, volcanic Grenada, the Renegade distillery has access to a wide range of altitudes, soils and microclimates, which are ideal for growing top quality cane. Dunfermline farm is surrounded by rainforest, but oddly, gets little rainfall itself and water is provided by water running down from the hills into the moisture-retentive soil. This is a traditional cane growing area and typically shows high yield and healthy harvests.
