Tiki Lovers Pineapple 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. The Tiki Lovers Pineapple rum followed in the footsteps of their Dark Rum and White Rum and is made with aged as well as unaged Jamaican pot-still rum, 3YO ex-bourbon barrel-aged rum from Barbados, as well as some clear column still rum from Guyana and Trinidad. It is a nod to Caribbean rum of the past, where fresh pineapples were added to sugar cane spirits. This modern take has all-natural pineapple extract added, made from ripe tropical South American pineapples. The infusion is added at the end of the process, before letting the blend rest and giving the aromas a chance to come together.
