J. Gow Fading Light
Chestnut cask aged pure single rum.
Pot still rum bottled at 43% Alc. Vol.
Zero added sugar or colouring.
Produced in Orkney, Scotland.
Fading light – the glow of the sun that never truly sets in the summer, or the dying light of short winter days. Known locally as the grimleens, the eerie dusk in Orkney has inspired many tales of ghosts and spirits.
Clean, bright, pale golden yellow colour. The nose is complex with estery notes of dried fruits, vanilla, cream and spice. The palate is smooth and long with hints of nuts and spice on the finish.
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.
Try it in a rumhattan cocktail or in a banana daiquiri
