Naga Rum

éventail or

NAGA Java Reserve is a blend of two distillations: the first is a 65% spirit obtained through distillation in traditional Chinese stills. The other, at 92% ABV, is obtained through distillation in a column still.

DISTILLATION PROCESS

  1. Fermentation of molasses and fermented red rice in teak vats up to 12% ABV.
  2. 52% of this "cane wine" is distilled in traditional Chinese stills until it reaches 30% ABV. It is then distilled in these same stills a second time, until it reaches 60-65%.
  3. 48% of cane wine is distilled in a column still to reach 92%.

The rum obtained in this way is then aged for 3 years in teak barrels, then transferred to American oak barrels (ex-bourbon barrels) for 4 years before ageing for one final year in cherry wood barrels.

TASTING NOTES
flavours of Indonesia…

to our double ageing in teak and ex-bourbon american oak barrels, we add a final year of ageing in cherry wood barrels, allowing the drink to develop flavours of honey and morello cherry.
