When you think of spiced spirits, you might automatically think of Caribbean seas, tropical islands and fruity flavours. The history of spiced spirits can be traced back to the 1600s, where these delicious drinks were first fermented using by-products of sugar, such as molasses – a then readily available and plentiful product from Caribbean plantations.
Things have changed a lot since then and while molasses is still commonly used in a lot of distilleries, we, at Illegal Tender Rum Co, have taken it upon ourselves to create a stand out blend that will not only celebrate Australian flavours but also elevate our rum game. After years of experimenting to create the best flavour, our master distiller has opted for dark brown cane sugar to produce all of our rums and spiced spirits. While this is seen as one of the most expensive techniques to produce rum, our ultimate objective is to create the best spirits and the best experience in one bottle. We can proudly say that we are the only distillery in Australia to be doing so.
An Exceptional Flavour Profile
It has taken our Master Distiller, Codie, a few hundred trials and variations to create an exceptional flavour profile for our spiced spirits. The traditional 5 common spices used in spiced spirits, alongside some truly Australian flavours such as:
- Lemon Myrtle
- Kakadu Plum
- Wild Rosella
were added to create our house blend. But that wasn’t the end of the journey. To make sure those spices mixed well together, another ten spices such as Ginger, Vanilla, Caramel, amongst others, were also added for an extraordinary and delicious final product.
