Stiggins' Fancy Smoky Formula Pineapple Rum

£48.00

This new smoky twist on Plantation’s legendary Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum looks set to become our new favourite for making a Daiquiri.

The original Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum was created by Alexandre Gabriel, the cellarmaster at Plantation, and David Wondrich, one of the world's foremost authorities on cocktails and the author of the book Imbibe! It was a tribute to the esteemed Reverend Stiggins, a character in the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens whose favourite drink was the ‘pineapple rum’. Never intended for sale, it was shared around colleagues and friends at Tales of the Cocktail 2014. A ‘victim’ of its own success, immense demand eventually led to its commercial launch. Now, Plantation have taken this award-winning rum and given it an extra maturation in ex-peated Teeling Irish Single Malt Whiskey casks.

Stiggins' Fancy Smoky Formula Pineapple Rum is immensely complex, as you’d expect considering that it’s made using column and pot still components from West Indies Rum Distiller in Barbados, Long Pond Distillery in Jamaica and Trinidad Distillers Ltd, not to mention all those Victoria pineapples. The Teeling Blackpitts Whiskey casks layer barbeque, bonfire ember, burnt caramel and smoked meat notes over the roasted pineapple, tangy tropical fruit, citrus peel, clove, cola bottles and ripe banana flavours we know and love. You know how the funk of Mezcal takes a Margarita to a whole new level? Well, that’s what Smoky Formula does to a Daiquiri, or any other rum cocktail you’d care to mix it into for that matter.

In the late 1980s Alexandre Gabriel of the Cognac house Maison Ferrand set off on an adventure; he was scouring the world in search of the finest rums. His passion gave birth to Plantation, an artisanal range of rums from the great terroirs of the tropics. Combining French savoir-faire with Caribbean and Pacific Island joie de vivre, Plantation’s outturn is a treasure trove for rum lovers and spirits enthusiasts. As proven by Plantation being voted No.1 bartender favourite rum three years running by the Drinks International ‘World’s Best Bars’ list.
