The original purpose of this Caribbean Rum was to impart flavour, preparing empty whisky casks for the final phase of maturation. Once the cask is seasoned with the Rum's flavour, the rum is removed and Whisky is brought into the casks to complete the whisky's final maturation. The Rum, is then often sold on or even disposed. This undiscovered treasure, a so-called 'finishing' Rum has been repurposed to form the base of Discarded's next fruity-forward spirit. The revealing quality behind Discarded Rum comes from Banana peel. Once extracted, Banana peel provide fresh toffee notes with a fruity balance, whilst maintaining the foundation flavour of an iconic Caribbean Rum. It's best served neat over ice, shaken in a Daiquiri or even mixed in a long drink with Ginger Ale.
Discarded Banana Peel Rum is now in a 70cl bottle. With the change in bottle size from 50cl to 70cl, the bottle and label design has also been changed.
