El Destilado Overproof Oaxacan Rum
Our still strength overproof version of Isidoro's wild fermented raw cane juice rum, un-proofed at 52.3% ABV, this bigger and more silky rum is an absolute banger.
The high altitude causes the Java sugar cane varietal to have a longer growth cycle (around 18 months) than at sea level. The low temperature, especially at night also results in a slower fermentation process (all wild yeast), giving the finished product it’s own distinct flavour and aroma profile.
