About Lost Spirits Cuban Inspired Rum
The majority of the rum produced in the modern world is high rectification "Spanish style" rum, says Bryan Davis, the master distiller at Lost Spirits Distillery. "Up to this point, we had only used our technological engineering advantages to make low rectification "funky" rums. The next logical step was to ask what would happen if we brought our style and techniques to Spanish style, Cuban rums."
Lost Spirits Cuban Inspired Rum is crafted from just four simple ingredients: baking grade molasses, bacteria and yeast cultures cultivated on bananas and water. Once the ingredients have been sourced, they are "clean" fermented and then distilled through a pot still. "The fermentation is additive free, just like it was a century ago in Cuba," says Davis.
Following distillation, the rum is matured in a combination of new, toasted American oak casks and used, charred American oak barrels.
The results are a clean, crisp rum but with a massive aroma and flavor — much like we imagine the rum of old Havana. Lost Spirits Cuban Rum has a rich aroma of butterscotch, caramel, honey pastries and apple crumble that leads to notes of citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla and fudge on the palate. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet, with a hint of oak. Pick up a bottle today!
Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.
