The modern marvel that is the Renegade Rum distillery was designed to extol the individuality of a single-farm origin, with extended temperature-controlled fermentation for purity, & considered distillation for gravitas. They look to compare & contrast natural flavours, terroir by terroir. It is presented pre-cask: as unaged, fresh cane juice spirit.
On the southern coast, protected from the full force of the Atlantic Trade Winds, Old Bacolet was one of the first areas to be cultivated by the French. A flat flood plain between two small rivers, these alluvial soils – Plains clay loam & Woburn clay – & a high water table produce lush cane. For this rum they harvested the quick-growing variety they call Cain from Josh’s Field, which stands on the terroir known as Riverside.
