Chestnut is more porous than oak, meaning the rum matures quicker. This in turn balances out the slow maturation associated with our cold climate. The unique flavour profile of chestnut, coupled with a long fermentation, creates an ultra-smooth rum. The pale golden colour lends itself perfectly to the name. Enjoy it straight or over ice, it works incredibly well with mango juice.
