STOLEN White Rum
The column distillation and maturation process takes place in Trinidad, the southernmost island of the Caribbean.
STOLEN White Rum matures for a minimum of two years in individually chosen charred American oak bourbon barrels. A selection of light molasses based rums are carefully blended by hand before being carbon filtered to remove any colour.
The result is a silver hue with hints of cocoa, fruit and vanilla on the nose with a sweet and delicate finish in the mouth.
Best served with ginger beer, juice or cola on the rocks – or in your favourite cocktail.
