Rum & Cola
Rum Barrel Aged Sour
This is Rum & Cola!
For us, cola is a mix of unexpected fruits and spices in perfect harmony. Coriander, nutmeg, lime cinnamon, and vanilla. So, don’t let the specifics of it all deceive you. The sum is even greater than the parts. When time had come for a barrel aged version we, of course, used some rum barrels. Because, what else do you use with cola? Rum! Cola!
Cola drinks have been around since the 19th. Century. Beers sour with Lactobacillus and flavored with spices a lot longer than that. The fact that no one, to our knowledge, had put these two together baffled us when we a few years ago started toying with the idea. Then we figured that making it work might be the issue. We started blending spices, looking up old botanical cola recipes, extracting flavors, doing some more blending, adding spices, taking spices away and playing with fruit combos. We could have given up. But, we didn’t. And, here we are. The perfect combo of everyone’s favorite two drinks, with a little popsicle vibe. Now, we wanted to combine these favorites with another popular liquid creating a replica of the oh so popular rum and cola. We had the beer age in rum barrels to reach that ”cola-candy” states, with some fresh warm tones from the rum.
