Berry Bros. & Rudd Grenada 8 Year Rum
Berry Bros. and Rudd can trace its origins back to 1698 when the widow Bourne founded her shop opposite St. James Palace. Today the present generation of Berrys and Rudds continue to manage the family-owned business from 3 St. James Place.
The Caribbean boasts a long history of rum distilling, born of the sugar plantations that began to develop in the 17th century. Each country has its unique style and with maturity the full intense fruit, spice and, often, molasses flavours shine through.
Soft sweet fruits and violets emanate from the delightful perfumed nose. On the palate the soft fruit presents itself to the front of the mouth, fattening to deliver good length and some spice notes. This very refined Rum benefits from well managed wood which balances the spirits superbly.
