Caribbean Ron Gold
A ten-year long gestation period in a wooden barrel bestows its typical notes of cocoa, chocolate, plums and raisins, nuts and mild spices upon our SHATLERs Caribbean Ron Gold. A soft and full-bodied finish and a distinctive sweetness make this goldbrown rum complex and very aromatic in its taste. SHATLERs Caribbean Ron Gold is available in a 0.5l bottle and contains 40.0% alcohol by volume.
The manufacturing of rum
Rum is most commonly distilled from Molasses, a byproduct in the sugar production process, or directly from fresh sugar cane juice and came to Europe from the Caribbean in the 18th century via sea trade. The high-proof and tasty spirit can not only be enjoyed pure or with hot water and sugar as a grog, like many seafarer in the 17th century used to enjoyed their rum. Through the spread of tiki culture in the 20th century rum became one of the most popular spirits used as a cocktail base for various mixed drinks amongst bar tenders. The popular Cuba Libre e.g. consists of rum, coke and a splash of lime juice and the Daiquiri is mixed with rum, lime juice and simple syrup.
Delicious rum cocktails are of course also part of the range of SHATLERs Cocktails: Havanna Special, Long Island Iced Tea, Mai Tai, Mojito, Piña Colada, Swimming Pool and Zombie all contain the beloved spirit.
