Ogasawara Rum

Ogasawara archipelago is located in the Pacific, about 1000 km south of Tokyo prefecture to which it legally belongs. It is composed of about thirty islands enjoying a semi-tropical climate, and beautiful environment which was recognized as "remarkable area" by UNESCO. Around 1830 fishermen from other regions in the Pacific began to stop and practice bartering with inhabitants of the island. They discover rum and gradually understand that they take advantage of the climate to start sugarcane production. This is now the mainstay of the island, with the production of fruit. Ogasawara Rum was born in the late 19th century from the distillation of molasses-based product. At the time people called this "awazake", and now this is the oldest rum in Japan.

<p style="text-align: justify;">Nose is vegetal, evokes the taste of artichokes, sugar cane and algea. Mouth is marked by notes of leather, ripe fruits, pears, apples, underlying flavours of deep black sugar. A different structure to caribeaan rums, more minerality and almost salty notes. The ending is long and spicey with a beautiful persistent fruitiness. <br /><br /><strong>Mineral and nice salinity<br /><br /></strong><span style="color: #9b9b9b;">小笠原ラム 小笠原ラムリキュール(東京都)</span><br /><span style="color: #9b9b9b;">70cl - alc. 40% vol.</span></p>
