GRANITE COAST RUM

Granite Coast Rum is made with 100% American Molasses and fermented at a high temperature with a champagne yeast. It is distilled only once in our 8 plate still and only the ‘heart’ of the rum is used. We allow the rum to rest for over 2 weeks to ‘breathe’ and develop its full taste. The final cut to 80 proof is done using pure New Hampshire Monadnock spring water. No charcoal filtering is done–it’s not needed!

TASTING NOTES

In the Glass: Crystal clear with an almost imperceptible gold. Swirling the spirit leaves a delicate ‘sheet’ of spirit in the glass that quickly descends down the glass wall.

Smell: A light caramel with a slight fruitiness.

Taste: A bold, sweet butterscotch up front. For a white rum it is surprising well bodied. The middle is nicely sweet with a smooth mouth texture. Finishes with a nice warmth, a slight pepper and no ‘burn.’

Drinking/Pairing Suggestions: This rum is well bodied enough to be a sipping rum, it can be served neat,chilled as a ‘martini’ with a twist of citrus (lemon, lime, etc). Excellent as a Mojito and/or a Caipirinha. Pair it with a tropical dish (I recommend coconut crusted shrimp) to remind you of summertime and warmer climates.
