Rum Nation was born in 1999 by Fabio Rossi, among other things also the founder of the brand of independent bottlers Wilson and Morgan (founded instead in 1992). The idea was born in 1990 when Fabio himself was in Scotland for the selection of some batches of whiskey and therefore on that occasion he noticed some barrels of whiskey from English Guiana and Jamaica, countries of former British domination which therefore used to send the barrels of rum to age in the UK to take advantage of the colder, milder climate. The training on rum comes, among others, directly from the great master Silvano Samaroli. Immediately Rum Nation wanted to propose lines that would honor the “nationality” of the distillate and its own character, labeling with an illustration of a stamp of the same nation. However, over the years Fabio Rossi has spent most of his time in Central and South America to “discover” all the best rums to bottle.
Independent bottlers select the best batches of distillate from the distilleries (active or sometimes closed) and take care of the refinement and bottling in order to offer products that best tell the individual characteristics of a territory or are aimed at an audience of connoisseurs /passionate.
Dark amber colour. Lively and enveloping on the nose, it has a fresh and aromatic bouquet of cola, bergamot, dates, orange peel and vermouth. A slight touch of esters is clearly perceived, which gives a sunny sensation. On the palate, it stands out for its fruity but easily balanced sweetness, with a pleasant refreshing lightness. Hints of sugar cane molasses, chocolate, raisins emerge, and an excellent balance between orange peel, cola and coconut. The finish is characterized by notes of black tea, sugary sweetness, honey and an enveloping softness. Not overly spicy, with hints of chamomile.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation. Great as a gift for someone special.
