Interesting blend of exotic spices combine with the grassy earthy notes our agricole Rhum. Agricole Rhum is made with sugar cane juice, not syrups or molasses - which gives a fresher drink, perfect for our tropical climate. The True Spirit of Queensland.
Batch One of our Brown Snake Rhum has sold out. Batch 2 is in short supply, please get in quickly!
First we ferment sugar cane juice following the French Caribbean AOC rules of Martinique. We begin our fermentation of the virgin sugar cane juice within a few hours of harvest from a local sugar mill. After about 48 hours fermentation we distill the result. We've rested the 73% ABV spirit for a month in stainless steel, and finished for 5 months in 40 year old Spanish ex- Pedro Ximenez Barrels. The original 300L barrels have been re-coopered specially for Brisbane Distillery down to 100L.
This short maturation in our tropical Queensland climate presents a truly Queensland spirit, mature beyond its years.
The fresh, vegetal cane spirit is rounded out by classic sultana & raisin character of Pedro Ximenez Sherry barrels. Christmas cake on the nose, date, toffee & hint of cocoa on the palate. Serve over ice.
