Maggie’s Farm’s New Pineapple Infused Rum Their First Flavored Spirit
The innovation continues at Maggie’s Farm Rum.
On Saturday, August 4th at 11:00am, Maggie’s Farm will debut their first flavored spirit – a pineapple-infused rum based on the same production method they use to produce “50/50” dark rum.
According to Head Distiller Tim Russell, they used their “50/50” dark rum method that calls for a blend of aged Trinidadian rum fermented and column-distilled from molasses. That mix is blended equally with pot-distilled raw cane-based rum and aged for up to an additional 6-9 months. With this new creation, fresh, whole pineapples and macerated pineapple meet were added to the dark rum portion for two weeks to infuse the juices and tropical pineapple flavors. Then, it was blended equally with Maggie’s Farm White Rum made from a distillation with pineapple meat and bark, all loaded into a 1000L copper pot still. The still’s gin basket was also filled with pineapple barks for the vapors to capture additional natural fruit oils.
Both distillates were then combined to capture the full essence of one of the world’s most delicious fruits while keep the entire rum 100% natural – meaning it contains no added sugars and no artificial ingredients. The final result is a dark rum with a genuine pineapple flavor and subtle sweetness while remaining relatively dry compared to most flavored spirits where back-sweetening with additional sugar is common.
The Maggie’s Farm 50/50 Pineapple Rum will go on sale at the distillery Saturday morning, as well as online at maggiesfarmrum.com (for shipping to PA addresses only). Bottles are priced at $40 each.
