A range of unique cask finished premium aged rums from the Dominican Republic.
For centuries the Caribbean has been a destination for European exploration and trade with many ships travelling back to Europe carrying their own fair share of Caribbean rum. During these long voyages back to Europe it was noticed that rums changed and developed over time, often becoming better when reaching cooler European climates.
This knowledge and understanding inspired us to experiment with this idea: What if we crafted an exceptional Caribbean rum but cask finished it in a cooler climate using the skills of Scotch whisky craftsmen and the perfect maturation conditions found in Scotland?
This is how Ron Larimar cask finished rums were born.
The Jewel of the Caribbean
Larimar, ‘the jewel of the Caribbean’, is a rum honouring the precious stone, after which it is named, that is only found in the beautiful Dominican Republic. The colours in the larimar stone are said to resemble the sunlight dancing beneath the Caribbean Sea. The uniqueness and beauty of the Larimar stone is the inspiration behind the Ron Larimar range of rums.
