Inner Circle Rum (Australia)

Recommended Posts

I recently received a sample bottle of Inner Circle Red, a newly imported rum from Australia by Spirit of Hartford, the folks that brought us Velvet Falernum, Doorly's and Foursquare Spiced.

This is an amazingly smooth rum (80 proof, also comes in 114 proof and 151) which uses the traditional and more labor intensive pot still method. Its made entirely from Fijian and Australian sugar cane.

Very buttery/butterscotch in terms of flavor profile, long and satisfying finish. Excellent neat or mixed. In Australia it even comes pre-mixed in cans of cola.

The Inner Circle brand is one which apparently dates its heritage back to the late 19th century with the Colonial Sugar Refinery's original distilleries in Australia and Fiji, but the company stopped producing rum in 1986. The brand was revived in 2000 by a well-known olympic yachtsman, Stuart Gilbert, and one of the remaining master rum blenders from its previous bottling, and some of the original "seed" yeast.

The rum has already garnered its share of prestigious awards, and I can certainly understand why.

I agree, this is one of my favourite rums (and long awaited in the US!). I like the 114 proof best

Jason -

Amen on that. I had a chance to sample the Inner Circle rums at RumFest in NYC a few months ago and was very impressed with them.

Cheers, Jay


Where there's a still, there's a way.
