Renegade All-Island Cuvée (46% ABV) which has been produced using a combination of pot and column distilled rums, is said to be the distillery's greatest assemblage of component terroirs, multiple single farm origins, cane varieties, distillation methods and wood types.
Renegade Single Farm Cuvée Dunfermline (50% ABV) which has
been produced using a combination of pot and column distilled rums, is said to
take its inspiration from the Grand Vins of Bordeaux, with its assemblage of
individually distilled component terroirs from Dunfermline farm.
Renegade MicrOrigin (55% ABV) which has been produced using
a combination of pot and column distilled rums, and cane grown on Hope Farm on
the island's wild, Atlantic-swept east side, is said to represent the ultimate
precision of the distillery's approach.
Renegade Cuvée Aura (46% ABV) which has been produced using
a combination of pot and column distilled rums, is an unaged rum, which presents
the distillery's pure spirit prior to maturation and is said to showcase its
vibrantly fresh cane rum flavours.
As per all of Renegade’s bottlings to date, these latest
releases are produced using fresh sugar cane juice rather than generic molasses,
and are free from any added colour or sugar. They are also non-chill filtered.
Commenting on the news Mark Reynier, said: "We were
delighted with the initial awards and accolades for our Pre-Cask bottlings, but
now it is time to evolve our concept even further. We are therefore excited to
present our full core range – beginning at a rum made from just a single field
of cane – a single building block – all the way through to beguiling cuvées
using cane showcasing Grenada's diverse array of terroirs.”
He went onto say: "These are creative assemblages that
bring greater complexity for the drinker. Finally, spirits enthusiasts or
single malt drinkers who are searching for transparency in rum – something
authentic and natural, with a real story to tell – will, I hope, have delight
in exploring the frontiers of rum's natural flavour."
Renegade All-Island Cuvée, Single Farm Cuvée Dunfermline, Renegade
MicrOrigin and Cuvée Aura, will be available next month from specialist
retailers in the US, for the respective RRP’s of $59.99, $69.99, $79.99 and $49.99.
