Tiki Lovers Dark Rum
In 2006, Munich bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck gave birth to the idea of producing handmade, classic cocktail bitters. Their goal was to introduce a new line of bitters that would allow mixologists, bartenders, and consumers everywhere to reach back in time and create traditional cocktails that were reminiscent of the drinks mixed centuries ago. Thus The Bitter Truth Co. was born. Tiki Lovers is the next logical step for the company a rum brand focused on blended rums with added character. The idea came about when Berg & Hauck came upon several subpar tropical Tiki cocktails during their travels. Berg has first-hand experience with rum making from his younger days, spent as a seafarer in the Caribbean, where he learned about distilling, blending, and mixing the popular spirit. His partner, a designer, bartender, and rum aficionado, has been a fan of Polynesian culture ever since visiting the famous Mai-Kai restaurant and venue in Fort Lauderdale, seeing the colorful dance performances, the carved statues, and experiencing Tiki drinks. Tiki Lovers Dark Rum consists of a blend of aged as well as unaged rum from the Caribbean. The groundwork is laid on unaged Jamaican pot-still rum, hailing from Jamaica's Hampden Estate the only distillery on the island that produces exclusively pot-still rum. It is expertly blended with Barbados rum that has been aged for 2 to 3 years. It is then enriched with clear column-still rums from Trinidad and Guyana, as well as some 3 to 5 YO rum from Trinidad, resulting in a spirit that is as complex as it is balanced. You can expect a rich palate with vanilla, fruit, spice, and dark sugar. Enjoy this 114-proof rum on its own or in a spectacular variety of rum-forward cocktails.
