Craft Rum Club – January’s Rum of the month is Damoiseau Gold

Damoiseau Gold Craft Rum Box for January is a specially selected delicious rum from the topical Island of Guadeloupe.

For the start of 2020 we are delighted to have sourced an Agricole Rhum from the island of Guadeloupe – Damoiseau Gold.  The estate was established at the end of the 19th Century by a Mr Rimbaud from Martinique. In April 1942 Roger Damoiseau Senior acquired the site and it has remained within the Damoiseau family thereafter. The estate and distillery are currently run by Hervé Damoiseau.

Damoiseau Rhum Gold is produced from the fresh sugarcane juice in Guadeloupe, and then spends 18 months in oak barrels. This imparts the delicate golden hue and complex oak flavours into this Agricole.

Damoiseau rums are the market leader in Guadeloupe, with a 50% market share. They also have a presence on the market in mainland France and export to more than 40 countries.

In January’s Guadeloupe box;

Damoiseau Gold – 70cl/40%  alc./vol 

2x 3 Cents Gentlemans Soda – 200ml

1x The French Kitchen French Sea Salt Crisp – 40g

Damoiseau Gold – Expressions

From the nose, you can detect a typical sugarcane sweetness alongside a slight fresh grassiness. Onto the palette there are warming notes of vanilla and cinnamon with a subtle oak finish which is where the rhum has aged.

We stumbled across The French Kitchen crisp whilst on a rare child free night out.  These moorish crisp are hand cooked in sunflower oil in small batches and seasoned to perfection with natural ingredients.   Enjoy this rum with the 3cents gentleman’s soda whilst nibbling on the French Kitchens crisp. Add ice to a high ball glass, pour two shots of Damoiseau Gold and soda to taste. Sit back and enjoy the start of the new year!

We look forward to supplying your next bottling of fine rum.

Cheers, from Kevin and Donna
