GLOBETROTTING RUM FROM COGNAC ORIGINS
The Spytail Rum Company is based in the cognac region of France – famous for not only its namesake brandy, but also the production of some of the finest spirits and liqueurs in the world.
FRANCE ET Rum
C’EST UN age-old connection
“Rum was transported in oak barrels across the Atlantic, maturing all the while on the perilous voyage.”
Dating back to the 18th Century, France has a long tradition of importing and more importantly, drinking fine rums imported from the Caribbean. The huge cane plantations of the tropical islands provided France with a huge supply of not only sugar, but also fine rums that were distilled in traditional stills. This rum was transported in oak barrels across the Atlantic, maturing all the while on the perilous voyage. Arriving at ports around French coastal towns such as La Rochelle, the rum was decanted from barrels and bottled for distribution around the country. The Spytail Rum Company uses this history as the basis for our fine rums.
A MODERN TWIST ON TRADITION
OUR cognac barrel rum is aged in cognac casks and our Ginger Rum is infused with fresh ginger and spices. We source aged rums from the Caribbean (Trinidad and Guyana) and blend them in our cellars. We produce two exceptional rums. Spytail Cognac Cask which is a Caribbean rum aged and finished in Cognac casks, and Spytail Ginger - a dark rum that is aged in Cognac casks, blended and infused with ginger and other spices to produce a delicious twist on traditional spiced rums. Our fresh ginger is sourced from the far east.
