The Scarlet Ibis Trinidad Rum

The Scarlet Ibis Trinidad Rum

West IndiesTrinidad 49.0% ABV

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

Smith & Cross Jamaica Rum contains only Wedderburn and Plummer pot still distillates, famous for their notes of caramelized banana, exotic fruits and spice and earthy finish. This is old-school rum, without the now-common influence of other wines and spirits, chill filtration, excess dilution, or added sugar. The complexity and flavor depth of this Navy Strength (57%) rum makes it a cornerstone of classic rum drinks, and the best Jamaican rum for providing the richness that punches and Tiki drinks require. The mark of Smith & Cross traces its lineage to 1788 as one of England’s most prominent handlers of Jamaica Rum. Full details
