Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum 700ml
A Caribbean Bartender’s Paradise
Inspired by traditional Caribbean recipes dating as far back as the 18th century, this award-winning pineapple rum from Plantation is an ode to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite drink was pineapple rum.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum is a tipple macerated and distilled with pineapples, a marriage of pineapple distillate and fruit infusion creates its incredibly unique fruity flavour.
Unlike a pineapple-flavoured rum that is saccharinely sweet, this spirit retains the heat and smoky profile typical of a dark rum but with a distinctive flavour of pineapples and notes of cloves, cinnamon and citrus peel.
To start, barks of Queen Victorian pineapple rinds are infused in Plantation’s 3 Star White rum before being further distilled in Ferrand Copper Pot Stills. Separately, pineapples are infused in Plantation’s Original Dark Rum for 12 weeks in cognac-soaked barrels before these two spirits are married and rested for 3 more months. The end result is a charming and refined rum with delicious undertones of flambeed pineapples and cloves.
While great sipped neat or on the rocks, Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple rum finds its calling in the mesmerizing world of cocktails. The sweet, slightly tart flavours of this spirit provides a bright contrast to the zesty lime of a daiquiri. If you like your cocktails simpler, prepare an Old Fashioned with this Stiggins’ for a delightful twist on your classic cocktail.
A CARRIBEAN BARTENDER’S PARADISE
Best described as a pineapple-influenced rum rather than a pineapple flavoured rum, this award winning spirit is collaboration between Plantation’s Alexandre Gabriel and cocktail historian David Wondrich, this spirit traces its roots to 18th century Caribbean rum distillers, where they would soak fresh pineapples in rum barrels to add sweetness to the spirit.
Fast forward to today, this spirit has become a favorite of bartenders across the world. Loved for its subtle, fruity flavor without the artificial sweeteners found in most flavoured rums, Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum is a bartender favorite when it comes to preparing not just daiquiris and Tiki drinks, but any tropical, fruit-forward cocktails.
