This newest addition to their Buzzard Point line of rums gives this craft-distilled artisan spirit a unique twist by using Panela, which gives the rum unique fruity and grassy notes.
The new Buzzard Point Barrel-Aged Rum will be available for purchase in District Distilling’s retail shop and liquor stores throughout the Washington metropolitan area beginning June 12, 2018. It is priced at $34.99 for a 750ml bottle.
District Distilling’s new Buzzard Point Barrel-Aged Rum is a barrel-aged take on their colonial-style white rum.
Fermented Panela sugar imported from small farms in Colombia and yeast typically used to ferment scotch whiskey make the basis for this rum. The fermented sugars are distilled twice to 140-proof before it’s barreled at 104-proof in five-year-old Tennessee bourbon barrels and aged for 18+ months.
The result is a spirit with grassy and tropical fruit notes of vanilla, honey and cinnamon.
One will also find the new Buzzard Point Barrel-Aged Rum incorporated into classic cocktails such as the Pogo Pogo with Buzzard Point Aged Rum, lime juice, green chartreuse, Crème de Cacao, pineapple juice and Ghost White IPA ($12).
