Plantation Pineapple Rum is a tribute to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite drink was “pineapple rum.”
To make this expression, the team at Plantation infuse the rinds of Queen Victoria pineapples in their white rum for a week then distill the liquid, and infuse the fruit of the pineapples in dark rum for three months. These are married together and left to age in casks for three months. Both distillate and fruit infusion are finally blended together, creating a rich and delicious pineapple bouquet, accented by smoky notes and aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus peel, and a touch of clove. The palate opens with a structured, pleasant sensation of ripe banana, pineapple, and spices layered in a smoky finish. Yum!
