A proper British Scratch Rum
Goldstone Amber Rum from the Goldstone Rum Distillery is a brand new scratch rum distillery that had its first batch ready for tasting in December 2022. In that short amount of time it has made a big impression in the drinks industry. Located in Henfield Sussex, this family-run company is co-founded by John and Georgina Bowell. They believe if you’re going to do something, then make it the best it can be, and they’ve taken that approach with their rum.
John and Georgina Bowell have spent months researching and developing recipes to achieve the perfect taste and are advocates of sourcing materials and ingredients through local companies for their Goldstone distillery.
Goldstone Amber Rum is made by fermenting a blend of fresh sugar cane juice, jaggery, panela and molasses, a recipe not seen before in rum, which gives it a distinctive flavour. Something for which they have been given much praise from industry experts.
Their four sugars have each been chosen for their particular characteristics; fresh sugar cane juice is added to the fermentation within hours of being pressed to maintain optimum freshness – it adds notes of baked banana. Jaggery, a solid sugar from India which gives the rum a subtle caramel hint. Panela, an unrefined whole cane sugar from South America, adds richness, and molasses gives the rum its spicy rich flavour. To give it its amber colour a small amount of caramel has been added to the spirit just before bottling. You can find out more in this months edition of Rumspiration.
Their classic white rum is the base for their rums including Goldstone Amber. The Amber rum is an unaged, unfiltered white with a touch of caramel for colouring. This lends a slight sweetness on the back end, whilst the forward notes bring grassy, tropical fruits and baked banana leaves. The Amber continues to grow on the palate after some time, bringing hints of hazelnut and liquorice. Goldstone ferment using a new yeast strain which has allowed them to create a complex and smooth rum like no other.
