Before delving any further into our rum, let us have a look at how rum is produced and its ties with Scotland.
Essentially, the spirit is made by distilling cane juice along with other by-products released during the processing of sugar, predominantly Molasses. There is four main procedures which are followed to achieve a rum rich in flavour!
These are mashing, fermenting, distillation and ageing. Each of these procedures must be harmonized and done to specific calculations to achieve a rum fit for the sophisticated pallet. A few more terms used during distillation is Fore Shot, Heads, Mids, Tails and also Muck and Dander.
