Eminence Blended Aged White Rum
With light and attractive soft fruit notes and a vanilla pod, creamy fudge and ripe pineapple aroma, Eminence has been carefully carbon filtered to remove the colour while maintaining the impact of the barrel. This smooth, light-medium bodied, dry blended aged white rum has a great depth of flavour and character. With a fruity but not sweet taste, it enjoys a gentle nutty pineapple aftertaste and long cream finish. It’s perfect enjoyed either neat, with a mixer or in cocktails such as a Daiquiri or Mojito. Eminence has twice been awarded accolades at the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC). £37.50, 42% ABV, 70cl.
Egremont Premium Reserve Rum
A premium sipping rum, Egremont is a blend of four cask aged rums hand picked from across the Caribbean and Central America and gently paired with pure soft spring water from the hills of Dartmoor. Filtered by layer upon layer of ancient granite, Dartmoor spring water balances the alcoholic strength of the base rums to a more accessible level, giving Hattiers Rums’ a long and creamy finish. A fragrant, medium bodied rum that is complex yet accessible, Egremont is superb enjoyed neat, over ice or used in cocktails such as Breakfast Old Fashioned. £42.00, 40% ABV, 70 cl.
Resolute Navy Strength Rum
A blended aged navy strength rum, made using rums from Barbados, Australia, Guyana and Jamaica, Hattiers’ Resolute Navy Strength Rum has a toasted brown sugar and charred oak aroma followed by warm banana. On the palate it has an intensity of fruit with pineapple, apple, banana, mango and a buttery pastry taste with darker notes of liquorice which linger. Wafts of coal smoke drift in on the finish, with a dominance of banana cream. £56.00, 54.5% ABV, 70cl.
Eminence, Egremont and Resolute are all available from hattiers.com as well as Waitrose & Partners, Harvey Nichols, Master of Malt, Fortnum & Mason, The Whisky Exchange, Enotria & Coe and Drink Finder.
