Goa-based Adinco Distillery has unveiled Alejandro, a crafted, small-batch, dark rum that is an embodiment of local ingredients: ‘Ukde Tandel’, a variety of heritage Goan red rice.
This rum has the nutty sweetness of cinnamon, followed by the festive flavours of nutmeg. The delicious notes of vanilla mingle with the spices that remind you of a decadent Christmas cake.
The rum is steeped in smoked wood chips from oak trees to intensify the colour and add oak notes to the flavour profile. As the rum swirls on your palate, you can feel the distinct earthy, caramel notes that come from the roasted heritage rice and wood chips.
Adinco Distilleries already offers a portfolio of Cabo and Tickle gins, Tinto feni, Gilmore and Old Oak whiskies.
