White rums are light spirits, mostly distilled in column sitlls, rested briefly in stainless steel vats after distillation and then bottled after dilution without further ageing. As such they are fresh and versatile spirits suitable for a bewildering variety of cocktails.
A blend of rums from five distilleries, each aged between three and twelve years then filtered to remove the colour. The rums are from Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana, with the intriguing addition of some Batavia Arrack from Java. As you'd expect, this is a big, characterful rum that sits well in a posh daiquiri.
Rhum Rhum PMG is a rum agricole from the island of Marie Galante, south of Guadeloupe. A collaboration between an Italian importer, an Italian distiller and the Bielle distillery. They use the best sugar cane known, the almost now disappeared B47.259 (if that's your thing) and five days of fermentation. A real wow rum!
A bottling of Bacardi Superior Rum. This was bottled in Mexico, one of the places the Bacardi family moved the operation to after escaping from Castro's Cuba in the 1960s. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s.
An old bottling of Havana Club Silver Dry Rum. Made in Cuba since the brand was established in 1878, it was nationalised by the Cuban Government in 1959. We estimate this was bottled in the 1980s and carries a strapline to 'mix freely'.
