— Plantation STIGGINS' FANCY PINEAPPLE —
CHARACTER AND DELIGHT
A tribute to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite drink was “pineapple rum.”
The barks of Victoria pineapples are infused in Plantation 3 Stars rum, which is then further distilled. Separately, the pineapple fruit is infused in Plantation Original Dark rum. Both distillate and fruit infusion are finally blended together, creating a rich and delicious pineapple bouquet, accented by smoky and clove notes.
A rich and delicious bouquet, accented by smoky notes and aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus peel, and a touch of clove. The palate opens with a structured, pleasant sensation of ripe banana, pineapple, and spices layered in a smoky finish.
Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum is the fruit of the labor of a third collaboration between Alexandre Gabriel and David Wondrich. Alexandre and David first worked together to create Ferrand Cognac 1840 Original Formula, which was introduced at Tales of the Cocktail in 2011 and went on to be awarded the Best New Product at the Cocktail Spirit Awards of 2012. The second collaboration resulted in the Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, launched in 2012 which was elected Spirit of the Year at the Berlin Bar Show in 2012.
