Discarded Spirits are like the Wombles of the spirit world - ‘making good use of the things that we find, things that the everyday folk leave behind’!
Here they've turned their attention to rum. Originally, the purpose of this Caribbean Rum was to impart flavour to prepare empty whisky casks for the final phase of maturation. Once the cask is seasoned with the Rum’s flavour, the Whisky replaces the Rum to complete the whisky’s final maturation. The Rum, however is then often sold on or even disposed of. An undiscovered treasure, this ‘finishing’ Rum has now been repurposed to form the base of Discarded’s next fruity-forward spirit. The revealing quality behind this Discarded Rum comes from an unlikely source, Banana Peel. Once extracted, Banana peel provides a fresh toffee note with a fruity balance whilst maintaining the foundation flavour of an iconic Caribbean Rum. Best served neat over ice, shaken in a Daiquiri or mixed long with Ginger Ale.
