DARK MATTER SPICED RUM 700ML

Scotland's first Spiced Rum

The taste equivalent of warping into a liquid black hole but without every atom in your body being crushed to an infinitely small point.

It all starts with the highest purity level, refiner's grade molasses, a standard of molasses almost unheard of these days in rum distillation. Following distillation, the all-important spices are added for a week-long infusion. The recipe stands out not just for the freshness of the ingredients but also the notable absence of vanilla. Dark Matter's infusion takes in a swathe of hand sliced fresh ginger, fresh green peppercorns (plucked by hand from their stalks), hand crushed, allspice berries, and Indian long pepper (a close relative of black pepper with a similar but spicier personality). Finally, to impart the ideal balance of sweet and spice, 60 g/l molasses is added. It is from this latter addition, and the spice infusion, Dark Matter takes its colour - no caramel colour is added. The quality and freshness of the ingredients creates a huge whack of intense ginger and spice and the class of the molasses creates a texture and a class that is unique in this style of rum, in our experience. The brothers have also added a twist on what bourbon distillers call 'sour mashing'. By adding a small amount of spent ale to the molasses at the beginning of distillation, they have managed to instil further complex flavours to their spirit.
