In The Netherlands, they have a rich history in trading & aging rum, but also in smoking food. Smoking food is an ancient process of preserving. It was actually one of the few food options for sailors (around the 17th century) when traveling with their ships to the Caribbean. With By The Dutch smoked Rum-based spirit, they combine both traditions in this exciting new project.
The spirit is made from selected aged Rums from Barbados, Martinique, and Panama. The Barbados Rum is infused with charred staves, for a period of 8 weeks. Liquid smoke is made by burning wood chips and collecting the condensation which is then filtered. The Rums are then blended together and infused with liquid smoke, sugar, and water.
