The first of its kind, Stolen Smoked Rum is distilled in Trinidad from sugar cane and aged in used whiskey barrels for up to two years. We then infuse our rum with premium, 100% natural ingredients from around the world. Smoked American hardwood and Moroccan fenugreek are balanced by Arabica Colombian coffee and Madagascan vanilla, delivering a coffee aroma on the nose with a smooth smoke finish. Best served with ginger beer, cola or in an old fashioned.
From its origins with the French Foreign Legion to the legions of modern mixologists still using it today, Dubonnet Rouge Aperitif Wine has been a staple on the cocktail landscape since its introduction in 1846. Created by Parisian chemist / wine merchant Joseph Dubonnet as a means to make quinine more palatable for the soldiers battling malaria in North Africa, Dubonnet's mix of fortified wine, a proprietary blend of herbs, spices and peels, and the medicinal quinine is a recipe that has earned it legendary status in the world of sophisticated drinks.
Nearly two centuries after its introduction, Dubonnet is the number-one selling aperitif brand in the United States, and still made according to the original family recipe. Its 19 percent alcohol content ensures a refreshing drink in the summertime, while its port-like flavors promise a hint of holiday in the winter months.
A large majority of rum producers offer a white rum variety. Maison Ferrand wanted to produce a white rum that would stand out from the others using rums aged and unaged and taking advantage of the exceptional talent of the House for blending cognacs. Plantation 3 Stars is a blend of rums from three islands: Trinidad (rum aged two or three years), Barbados (young rum), and Jamaica (old rum). This final blend was carefully thought out by our cellar master and each island brings its own aromatic characteristics.
A creation of crazed-passion, Lunatic & Lover is in our opinion the world’s finest botanical rum. Through imagination, mania, and a dash of madness, we have managed to invent a distillate which instils the very spirit of adventure.
All that is put into the spirit after this point is a slow, gradual addition of H2O over several weeks, diluting the distillate down to drinking strength. No added sugar, no essences, no flavourings, no colouring. Only pure rum and the essential oils brought over from the botanicals.
None of this is easy, but compromise is not part of the psyche at Lunatic & Lover, and we fervently believe the fruit of our labour is testament unto itself.
Lunatic & Lover epitomise quality over quantity. The batches made are scarce and small, with each bottle hand numbered. We are seriously zealous about where our creation can be purchased, so if you do have the good fortune of finding our bottle in the wild, we politely suggest you take full advantage.
