A pineapple delicacy with a whisper of Irish peat
Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum is a perfect example of Plantation Rum Master Blender Alexandre Gabriel’s passion for experimentation. He wanted to develop a unique expression to offer as one-time gifts to partners in the spirits trade, and teamed up with famed cocktail historian David Wondrich to create an artisanal pineapple-infused rum. The end result was so irresistible that it has become a staple in the Plantation Rum range and winner of numerous rum awards. The name is a tribute to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite tipple was “pineapple rum” (hidden in a tea cup).
Hand-peeled rinds of Victoria pineapples are infused in Plantation 3 Stars white rum, which is then further distilled in traditional copper pot stills. The pineapple fruit is separately infused in Plantation Original Dark rum, and the two are blended to create a lush bouquet of tropical fruit and warm spicy notes. Daiquiri and Mai Tai lovers, rejoice! You can find out more in this months edition of Rumspiration.
A rich and delicious bouquet, accented by smoky notes and aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus peel, a touch of clove and hint of dry peat. The palate opens with a structured, pleasant sensation of ripe banana, pineapple, and spices layered in a distinctive smoky finish.
