Hamilton 87 White 'Stache Rum
Missing the clean, fresh flavor of aged molasses-based rum that had been carbon-filtered back to clear, rum with a slight coconut note, Ed Hamilton decided to expand his rum line with one of his own. To recapture those flavors and aromas, he sourced and blended rums from several different islands. The bulk of is aged rum from Trinidad, with sugar cane and molasses distillates from Guyana and Santo Domingo. White 'Stache contains no flavors, sugar, glycerine or anything else common in other spirits.
This high proof blend is carefully diluted with filtered, well water over five days. Only by slowly diluting the high proof spirits can the most delicate aromas and flavors be preserved. With a market full of 80 proof clear rums, Ed dilutes to a more potent 87 proof. Enjoy in daiquiris and swizzles with a dash of bitters.
