The closing of the Caroni distillery in 2002 marked the end of pure pot-still rum from Trinidad. The local thirst for flavorful rum has not abated, however, and the remaining column-still facilities on the island continue to set aside a portion of their production time for higher-ester rums for drinking and for perfume. At Haus Alpenz, we love flavorful rum, and we are delighted to continue bringing Trinidad’s finest at a strength perfect for sipping or mixing.
The Scarlet Ibis Trinidad Rum
West Indies ➜ Trinidad 49.0% ABV
Scarlet Ibis is a blend of three- to five-year aged Trinidad rums, with classic flavors of toffee, tobacco, and dark honey on a firm, dry backbone. This is old-school rum, without the now-common influence of other wines and spirits, chill filtration, excess dilution, or added sugar. Scarlet Ibis shines in a Corn 'n' Oil, Palmetto, and Mai Tai, as well as in simple sour drinks and the rum Manhattan. This project, named for the national bird of Trinidad, was originally commissioned and blend-selected by Death & Co in New York. Full details
